Chillin' With You

Today's card entitled "Chillin' With You' is not the typical Valentine's Day card; it has no pink, red, flowers, nor any hearts!  It's a Valentine's card to honor our friendships.


This card, featuring Eyelet Outlet's beautiful penguin and polar bear brads, delivers a simple message:  "I like chillin' with you"! and the inside of the card says "Happy Valentine's Day".

Looking through my stamp sets, I found the sentiment (by Stamps of Life) and thought it was perfect for the penguin to convey his thoughts to the polar bear!  From that point it was easy to create a snowy background with Eyelet Outlet White Pearls and ice glitter (by Stampin' Up).  The pond (by Paper Crafting Essentials stamp) was a great place to complete the scene.  The bow may be omitted or replaced with some cording or baker's twine.   
The penguin and polar bear brads are so much fun to work with!  I am excited to work with them on future cards and encourage everyone to hop on over to the Eyelet Outlet site to pick up their penguins, bears, pearls, and more.   There's still time to create your special Valentine's Friendship cards!

  1. Oh Susan- I love this card! What a great non traditional piece. You’re so talented!

  2. In this manner my pal Wesley Virgin's story starts with this shocking and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he discovered hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to obtain everything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the exact same methods many celebrities (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become rich and famous.

    You probably know that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    Really, that's because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe this conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head around 7 years back, while driving an unregistered, beat-up trash bucket of a car without a driver's license and with $3.20 on his debit card.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I become successful?"

    You took part in those questions, right?

    Your success story is waiting to start. You just have to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
