OWH - Die-Versions Bloghop!

Oh! I do love bloghop time! Thanks for joining me today. If you came here from Patti's Blog you are certainly headed the right direction! You may also start at the top over at Stars & Stamps!

I'm so excited to share my cards today that I made with the cute Die-Version's OWH dies. I used the cute "Me + You Forever" Sweet Phrases - DVPH-005. You can definitely pick this one up over at Die-Versions along with many, many other adorable things!

I love the hexagon shape - it goes so well with lots of other hexagon shape/patterned things that are so trendy right now. I used my die on white paper and mounted on a mat of black for the card above. The die cuts so cleanly that it left me some perfectly shaped letters from the "negative space." I used them to make a second card...

I also used some Darcie and ProvoCraft  Cuttlebug embossing folders today, and two cute little heart-shaped blings. Everybody loves heart-shaped bling, right? I do think that these dies make some really nice looking clean-and-simple cards. 

...and now for a little prize time... leave me a comment and tell me which of the Die-Versions dies you have seen today that really caught your eye. I will pick a random comment-er and send you the "Happy B-Day" die shown here:

It is so darned cute but I didn't even have time to use it yet. So brand-new in the package, this die will come right to one lucky winner. (Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you!)  I'm happy to send this great fundraiser die to a good home! I'm also happy that you stopped by today. Hope you have a very fun hop!

Now hop on over to see what Anne has done with her Die-Versions dies! Have a wonderful weekend!

February Goodies

Time kind of got away from me again... February in Idaho included a very nice sunny weekend during which I got NO scrapping, but a lot of early spring cleaning done. It was nice to open the doors and air out the house and scrub the mud off of the kitchen / mud room floor! Get out, winter!!!

We also kind of got caught up watching the Olympics. Wasn't that fun? Since we live so closely to so many prime skiing areas, we had quite a few locals in the mix. How exciting! I always love watching the winter games and Russia was really neat to see and learn about.

Here are a few cards that I recently got to finish up following some Deconstructed Sketches.  I'm afraid I am too far behind to include any of these in their recent posts, but I do love following them anyway.

I've been on a real butterfly kick, lately.  What a nice excuse to use up some favorite old papers, though. This one has some wonderful felt-textured butterflies. I used a favorite Studio-G sentiment and a fun set by SU called Papillion Potpourri. (Stamps and punch set)

Thanks a lot, Friend Valerie, for introducing me to these little "Tiddly Ink" stamps. I have been avoiding looking them up, because they are so darned cute. Here's a little go I had with my Copics and a few more butterfly dies too. Oh - Sizzlets, I think.

More of the same plus some old butterfly paper from DCWV and  a CTMH sentiment. It sure is nice to use up some old supplies. More coming soon... there is a blog hop this weekend! Hooray!post signature
