This month's kit was sent out by the sweetest person......Joyce Mehrberg!  Please go visit her lovely blog and tell her I sent you!  This month starts us off with a holiday OTHER than Christmas.  Joyce sent some fabulous pattern papers and stamped images.  I went a little different route with my cards this month so I hope you like what you see!

Amy, these are so pretty and so perfect for Valentine's Day! My favorite card is your first one, love how you framed that sweet bicycle built for two with that Polaroid frame, so sweet with the pink pearls and twine on the side. Great use of all the patterns too.

Joyce said...

Thanks for your kind words about me. That was very nice. I love your different take on the kit, and will be CASIng you for sure. Love those chevron arrows in your second card (is that a die?), and how you framed the patterned paper in your first card. Your last card is CAS perfection.

Hi Amy! Beautiful post as always - wouldn't expect anything else from you! The stripes of pattern paper behind that polaroid are just yummy as well as the pink woodgrain, and the rows of pretty die cut hearts - you saw everything so differently than I did and I'm just wishing I could do it like you my friend! Absolutely perfect!

Renee said...

The Paper Parade said...

Great cards, Amy! I think the first is my favorite, I love how you positioned the polaroid and how the fun paper is showing through :) The second one is so trendy, too!

Tracey McNeely said...

Amy I love all of your cards, just fantastic. I was totally stumped on what to do with the paper from your first card, but you nailed it. Love your CAS approach to your cards.

Marybeth said...

Sorry I am late! I love your first one too, well I think they are all fabulous. Love the arrows you made for the second one. Beautiful, Amy!

Beautiful--every one! Love how you framed the bicycle and how cool is that pink woodgrain! Great way to use the heart borders too!

Jackie said...

All three cards are terrific Amy! The pattern on the middle one is wonderful and I'm loving the bicycle in the first one! The row of hearts are so pretty on the last card too!

Okay, so I'm just a little bit behind, but I'm finally here! I just love that first card with the Polaroid framing the bike image! I didn't get that striped paper in my kit, but I will totally be CASEing the idea with something else! Your second card is my favorite with the fabby woodgrain background. Such a cool design! And your last card is simple but brilliant!
