Maude is at it again!

I made this Valentine card for my Mom. She is recovering from surgery and could use a real "Maude" pick me up. This card was inspired by the lucious Valentine cards that Jennifer at Jennifer's Sweet Designs has been making. I love this card and the chocolate brown has just stuck in my mind ever since I saw her card! Be sure to check out all the wonderful Valentine's she has shared!

Susanna at Card of the Week has a sketch challenge up today that you should all try. You can see it here. Although I did change it around some, I followed the basic sketch I think!

Now, if you've been around my blog long enough...you know Maude is my favorite stamp of all time...I don't own her, but she comes to visit occasionally so I can stamp some of her images. She is quite a character! Thanks to Barb for letting Maude come visit! She is made by Art Impressions. I did paper piece her robe and bunny slippers!

If you have a "Maude" card you would like me to link here...just send me an email...

Jenny at One Krafty Kat created a Maude card.

You can see Jenny's creation here.

Coffeestamper on SCS posted this one.

bmbfield on SCS created this funny scene with Maude.

I made this one for Courtney's Closet challenge.

Stamps: Super Maude-- she used to come in two sizes, so you might want to look around Art Impression's site, Isn't Life Sweet sentiment by Stampabilities and bought at RKStamps. It is a sentiment made to go with my House Mouse stamps.
