Love Cards - H{ippity} Hop Monday

For the first card I attempted the color challenge for this week.  Black, Neutral (brown) and one other color.  My green is actually a really pretty green but it sorta looks yellowy here.  I thought I was getting a much better picture than this!  The pretty background stamp didn't show up here too well either.  Anyway in person the brown and black work well together.  The card itself is Core'dinations black with green on the inside.  The stitching is brown.  The Love background stamp is from the May KOM and is stamped in creamy brown chalk ink (as well as around the edges).  The Love Birds (Ippity Because of You) are stamped with black Unity ink on the green card (MM 6 x 6 pad) then again on white and cut out.  The flowers are bazzill.  The black heart brad is doodlebug and it is fuzzy!! (love it)  I threw this second little quicky card in - it will be going to the St. Jude's card drive (along with several others that I have made and/or still want to make)  you can get more information on that on Julie Campbell's fabulous blog or by clicking here. I cut the alligator with the cricut (I thought it looked like he was smiling!)  It's really harder than I thought to do a Valentine for a child that I do not know and is for either boy or girl!!  The heart is Ippity the sentiment is Unity (I think the December store kit - but I may be wrong on that one.

I wanted to thank you all for the well wishes - the card class for our women's retreat went very well.  They all loved it!!

Love the cards Rona.......I'm having a harder time than I thought making a child valentine for either gender. But I think the kids will enjoy getting them no matter what they look like. I know I would. I've got 18 finished. Sammi was sick today, so I kept her and she helped with some. It was fun. Yours are so cute......
