Young Love Valentine Card... M5D New Releases

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching as it seems all the days and holidays are anymore.  As much as I hate to see the time going by so quickly, I am greatly anticipating the arrival of Spring.  I am ready for these cold winter days filled with more snow than anyone should have to have at one time in one place to be replaced with an abundance of sunshine and warm days that we can enjoy spending our time outdoors once again. 

In the meantime, I would like to share my latest card with an image from one of the new M5D releases this week.   This image is one from Fairydoodler, but there are many new releases that you may enjoy if you would like to have a look over at the store



Onto the new releases for this week  :)

M5D Sunset Meadows Valentine Card

Hi Everyone,  Sorry you had to wait so long for the reveal for this card, but the M5D new releases are now out today.  Go have a look.  There are some really awesome ones this week.  I have had so many crafting delays over the past month or two, and my latest was a lack of black printer ink.  With our bad weather here, I was not able to go out and buy some when I needed it and still had to get my card done in time, soooo what does a creative mind do in a bind????  Get creative and improvise :)  I decided to make this a vintage card and changed the colors to antique them and voila....no black ink needed.  Have any of you had to do something similar when caught in a situation like this? 
I posted a couple of pictures that show without the new M5D Valentine digi buttons, and then I decided that I wanted to add some to the card, so there are a couple that are shown with it too.  I really did go button size with these buttons, so that they would fit well on the ribbon.  These are so versatile and can be used with just about anything.  I hope that Sue will keep making these for every occasion. 
I know that some of these pictures may look like this is an easel card, but it isn't.  It is a gatefold turned sideways.  Just wanted to try something different to see what it would look like.  Do you like the look?  Have any of you tried this before? 








Here they are.....the new releases :)

Another Snow Day and A Little Sneaky Peek ;)

Hi Everyone...Is it looking white outside where you are?  We are on our 2nd snow day of the week for the schools here.  I don't love snow, but I seriously can't complain if I am comparing to the winter we had last year.  The kids sure aren't complaining.  If it weren't for the frigid temps, I know they would want to be outside all day in this stuff. 

Unfortunately with the weather and some other commitments this week, I did not have time to get a project done for the new M5D releases that came out this week, but please go have a look at some of the awesome new images.  There are some wonderful samples from the DT. 

I do, however, have something prepared for the next upcoming release and thought I would share a little sneaky peek with you.  Lacy, frilly and all feminine.  Would you expect anything less from me?  Be sure to stop back next Thursday to see the whole thing. 

Stay warm and safe in this weather my friends.


Hugs,

Cupcake Bookmark...M5D New releases

Happy New Year everyone!  I haven't posted since before the New year, so I wanted to be sure that I wished you all a wonderful and creative new year.  There are some great new releases from the McMahon Five Designs Store today.  Sooo cute.  I wanted to make a bookmark with a couple of them, but do you all notice something wrong with this picture?  LOL, guess I wasn't thinking that this was going to be quite bulky to fit between the pages of a book.  Oh well, my daughter likes it, so hers it is.  ;) 
The cupcake image and the sweet friend sentiment are two of the new digis that I used, and the dp with the cherries is also part of the collection.  If you look closely, you will also notice that I used some of Sue's wood paper on the front of this bookmark too.  I love that stuff :)  All of these products can be found at The McMahon Five Designs store.








Below are the new releases and logo links to our friends that provide their products through McMahon Five Designs.
