This week Jan mixed products from many different sources ! The flower came from My Favorite Things stamps - she stamped three times, and then fussy cut the petals, twirled them around an awl, and popped a brad in the middle. Her blog shows you how - check it out !

Liz used the very cute stamp 'Millie The Mouse' from My Favourite Things to make her card with this week's sketch. She used some glitter to outline the mouse and to colour in the bow and ears. And she added some rhinestones for some extra bling

Regan loved working with this sketch. She said she doesn't usually do square cards and it was fun change! For her image she used the adorable stamp set Sprinkles on Top provided by our sponsor My Favorite Things! You can find more photos and details on her blog!

Tracy has used "Ballet Millie" and Copic markers from our February sponsors, My Favorite Things and Copic. Her sweet little mouse is backed with lovely Prima papers and a touch of green chalk shading. You can find more details about the card at her blog.

Design Team

Angi loved working with the sketch this week. She used the "Coffee? Tea?" coffee cup stamps from My Favorite Things. She added some fun buttons around the circle, coordinating ribbon, and a flower to dress it up a bit. For more details on her card please check out Angi's blog.

Kimberly used the sketch to create a fun Valentine's Day card for her fiance. The "camping" theme is perfect for her man who loves to go fishing. The adorable stamp is called "Fred Bear Goes Fishing" from our sponsor at My Favorite Things. Kim loved using her Copic markers to color the image - she even created her own grass! You can see all the list of markers and supplies for Kim's card on her blog, Paper Loves Glue.
