National Hugging Day

I created this card for todays SC209, I need some thank you cards for Christmas. I used SU upsy daisy and rock and rolled it in riding hood red and river rock. I then covered the flowers with crystal effects to give them some shine, I am not sure if you can see it in the photo, but they are really shiny. I added the riding hood red ribbon, I think by now you know I luv the riding hood red color, it is one of my favorites! I added American Crafts cranberry brads that match the riding hood red perfectly. Several of American Craft brads match SU colors very nicely. I stamped the Verve seniment and punched it out with the circle punches. The dp is KaiserCraft. I hope you enjoy visit and my cards today!


























I created this card for the Dirty Dozen Sketch DSKETCH1208 and for the Dirty Dozen Central Theme CT1208 to pick a lesser known holiday. I chose National Hugging Day, it is January 21...remember to hug someone or two on that day. I used my Stampendous Chanitogo's Love Balloon stamp, I think it is perfect for the Hugging Day. I used riding hood red, pink pirouette, white, and basicgrey dp. I colored the monkeys with SU markers, paper pierced the balloon, and sponged around the monkeys and the edges. I stamped HUG somebody today as the sentiment and punched it out with the circle and scalloped punches. I also faux stitched around the outside edges. It would be great for Valentines day too....I hope you like it! Enjoy

  1. I love the combo of the riding hood and river rock on your first card as well as the combo of the stamped image and patterned paper. I have never heard of hug day, but any occasion is a good excuse to make a card right?
