HIMCR #184 - Any Holiday

HIMCR #184 - Any Holiday!
This year we've decided to change our weekly challenge line up. This year every fourth week is going to be Any Holiday! Perfect for those of us that need to work on Christmas cards through out the year or perfect for those of us that need to scrapbook old pictures from ANY HOLIDAY!!!

The sponsor is A Day for Daisies!

The giveaway is a $12 Gift Certificate to A Day for Daisies!

I made 2 cards this week, I used some of my Japanese crafting supplies that my kids in Tokyo sent me.

I added the background hearts to my paper via my eBrush and a heart stencil that I made.
The papers behind the cupcake images are crafting papers from Japan. The ribbons and butterflies are from my stash, I colored the wooden butterflies with my eBrush. I used my Spellbinders scalloped circle dies to cut the circles, I used the biggest die on the solid papers, the next size down for the Japanese papers. I also added an Action Wobble to the, "Love Tart" because Miki loves the way they wobble.

 After I colored the images I used some Fantastic Glaze & Glue to add a little dimension to the, "frosting" and sprinkled the pink one with pink Tinsel Glitter and white glitter on the blue one. The pinkish color on the blue one is from an attempt to just color the, "frosting" but I didn't like the result.

Here are the insides, the washi tape is from Japan, the sentiment and heart stamps are from my stash.


  1. LOVE your sweet Valentine's. They look wonderful in both colors. Love your stencil and ebrush background. Thanks for sharing.
