So beautiful, love these sentiments and your style to showcase!
I specially love the textured impression dies with cute image stamps and lots of embellishments!

Susan T. said...

What a great stamp set!! I love what you did with the two sayings. You have a real knack with embellishments. I'm inspired now to use more lace and doilies. The great part about crafting is the ability to try new things and experiment with new techniques.

Jean said...

Wonderful set and you have used it well!

Neat sentiments! Beautiful cards!
I'm sad to see the celebration coming to a close, but happy to be able to follow you all year! You inspire me to keep working. My artistic obsession these days is paint. Particularly watercolors. Ctayons, pencils, pa s, whatever. I've been dying to try twinkling h2o but haven't yet.

Robin said...

Both are such beauties! I really love the gold around the sentiment on the first and the lace is so gorgeous! What a great month this has been with you. I'm so happy to have gotten to know you and learn of your incredible story. My favorite thing to do in crafting is to color. It's such a calming thing for me. I can escape the world. I wish many more happy days for you and your family. God bless you. Hugs, Robin

Jean Chaney said...

Great celebrations cards, Holley. The thing that I love best about crafting is meeting new people and making new friends. With all the online groups and the local classes I give and take, I have met some wonderful people that I am happy to now call friends.
As far as crafting needs, well, that's everything new that comes out, LOL!

More great card from you, Holley! :) I love crafting mostly for the ability to express my creativity and for giving me a way to relax and reduce stress

Virginia M. said...

This birthday saying set is awesome. Love the 2 cards you made with it. Since I have a Big Shots machine, I love to use die cuts on my cards. It has been fun to participate in you month long celebration. All the cards you made this month have been great. Besides cardmaking, I love to paint watercolors. Presently I am working on 2 cactus/desert watercolors for a friend. If you have a favorite scenic location, please let me know. I'd love to do a watercolor for you.

Glennis said...

That is a lovely range of sentiments to have, so useful. Sentiment stamps are a must have in everyone's craft supplies

cebelica said...

Your cards are very beautiful. So elegant!
Phew, what I love about crafting? It's my way to relax and "escape" for a while. What I like to use ... Let's see ... I like to I use lots of die cuts, lace and flowers. And stamps - big flowers, cute ones, scenery ones. And anything Christmas related - I love making and sending out Christmas cards. :)

Rhonda Miller said...

Your cards are great. I love how you've used the sentiments as the focus. What's not to love about crafting. I love stamping and coloring and putting everything together on the cards and other projects with some sparkle and shine added.

Audrey R said...

Hi Holley - fun cards. I am looking for a saying to go with eyeglass die cuts. You are spectacular or something like that.

Thanks for making February such a fun-filled month, and for sharing your pretty cards with us. I love the gold foil doily in your first card and the beautiful die cuts. Doilies are a favorite addition to cards for me and I have them in all colors. Dies and clear or rubber stamps are my weakness and I've been learning how to layer and color my images and die cuts. Vintage designs, sentiments for every holiday, cute critters and nature scenes, and background stamps and elements that can be combined to make patterns are all things I love to work with. I'm trying to learn how to color faces and hair with alcohol markers but it's slow going sometimes so I really admire your talents! Thanks for an amazing celebration and here's to many many more healthy years!

Andree said...

Two fabulous cards Holley. Wonderful sentiments, doily and die-cuts.
The thing I love most about crafting is the sharing of inspiration. You are a shining example of this. Not just for sharing your crafty projects but also your joy for life xx

ionabunny said...

Those are very cool sentiments. I love crafting with friends or for friends. I love dies and stamps and embossing folders. Thanks so much for another fun month and congrats on keeping healthy. Hugz

Cara Malmrose said...

What a fantastic month Holley! For personal reasons, February is my least favorite month but your celebration has really helped me see much brighter now. So thank you for sharing .... You. It has been a pleasure.

As for crafting, I am a curious bug and love learning about new tools or techniques. But at the end of the day, I just love being able to create something that brings pleasure to someone else.
(Hugs)

DJ said...

I love giving people a handmade card or gift as I feel they are receiving a piece of me... I really try to make something special each time.

DonnaMundinger said...

What an amazing month! Such fabulous inspiration all around. Love these amazing sentiments and I think you're pretty amazing yourself. I love crafting for friends and loved ones. What better way to show how much they mean to you than to do create something personal, just for them? Crafters are the most caring and loving people ever. xxD

Mel C said...

Thanks for sharing your cards Holley, you are an inspiration! Wonderful sentiment set from Lisa! I'm always making cards, I enjoy using die cuts, lace and small flowers on them. Small and tiny flowers are hard to find around here so I'm always looking for a good deal.Thanks for all the fun this month!

Sindhu said...

Lovely cards...the sentiment Fonts are very nice..for crafting gives me immense pleasure....and all the craft supplies also makes me happy...I love dies,embossing folders and as I am a learner in stamping ,wants to have some stamps.watercolor papers and zig brush pens are in my wish list...

SHartl said...

The sentiments and fonts on your card designs are so pretty and I always love a beautiful card! I'm a rare crafter, who has a pretty small stash still, but love stamps, dies, embossing folders, and cute or modern designs that don't involve too much coloring. I also like stamps that can be used for masculine projects, and many vintage or retro designs too. My coloring technique is still in the beginning stages so I'm trying to learn all that I can. Crafting is my way to wind down and to share my love of color and design. Thanks for such a fun month Holley!

StampNK said...

Thank you for all the card shares and giveaways Holley. You are beyond sweet to share your happy 7th celebration with us and I hope this is only the beginning of a lifetime of good health. Crafting is my favorite way to pass the time and I love stamping, die cutting, and playing with ink. My favorite designs are vintage but I also like simple, fun designs and sentiments. I donate a lot of my cards to hospitals, nursing homes, and children's groups so am always looking for new ways to send cheer through the mail. My selection of dies is still quite small so I hope to increase that in the next year. Hugs to you and thanks again!

Kaija said...

Two beautiful card Holley!
At one time, I have a lot crafting a diverse but nowadays, but cards made.
They are dealing ideas of runs, and also mentally rests.

Tracy Welham said...

Kathy said...

These sentiments look lovely

Shelley said...

Love the cards, lots of bling and lace! I like bling! Ink is wonderful all by itself to create wonderful backgrounds and it's such fun to just smear it around and add some stenciling.

Amy Martin said...

Oh those are neat. Loving the sentiments. I love anything mixed media. Background stamps, stencils, paint, ink, charms, wood veneer,amytging that I can make into a 3-D canvas basically.

I love those sentiments. I have done just about every craft there is. My daughter has learned to crochet and has stolen all my hooks. She also frequently borrows my cutting dies, but I usually get them back.
