Snow day cards

It's unbelievable to think that we're getting snow again in South Carolina, but it's here!  Two weeks ago, we were in awe of it, but now, we don't want anything to do with it.  While I'm stuck inside, I'm busy making cards for a few challenges.
First up is this week's Muse challenge - #54.   The inspiration card is here:
I was inspired by the watercolors over the flowers and used my Inktense pencils to watercolor the "Always" sentiment:
I added Wink of Stella to the sentiment and to my heart peeking over the edge.  It was a challenge for me to use my watercolors, but I always enjoy playing around with them.
My second card for today is for a new-to-me challenge blog - Cardz 4 Guyz. 
I'm always trying to make more masculine cards and this challenge blog will inspire me to do that.  This week's challenge is Truly, Madly, Deeply - make anything that represents love - for a guy. 
I used a Miss Kate's cut file for the "Love" embellishment and kept it masculine with the black, white and red colors.  I cut the heart in red, then used Wink of Stella on it and finally Glossy Accents which makes it very shiny.  I may actually give this card to my husband on Valentine's Day!  Ha ha.
I hope you're staying warm today too.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I'm sure your husband would be thrilled with this card, I love the traditional, red and black. Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz 4 Guyz, now you have found us, I do hope you visit us again. Caz

  2. I love that you embossed in white and then watercoloured - it's such a great look! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse this week!

  3. Both your cards are wonderful! Love the watercolour with the embossing and a challenge for masculine design cards sounds perfect, I will have to check it out. Hard to believe you having so much snow when we are in the middle of Summer here...

  4. What a great man's Valentines card, so clean with that punch of colour in the heart. Sympathy over the snow, We had our first snow this week, better than all this rain!. Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz4guyz.:)

  5. Two fabulous cards. I really like the colorful look of your first card. That little peeking heart is a great idea. Your second card is perfect for a guy. Hubby will really like this one, I'm sure. I want to find time to get started entering cards over at that challenge also. I do need help with masculine cards and this would be good practice. Enjoy your day.

  6. A great male Valentine card. Thanks for playing along at Cardz 4 Guyz x
