Totally in Love

     OK, you have a little over a week to get all your Valentine cards ready and we're going to encourage you over at QKR Stampede with a theme of "Valentine Cards" this week.   How can you miss with a theme that general?

     My card is made using a wonderful image and fun sentiment, both from QKR Stampede;  6905 "Totally in Love" and 14513 "Valentine." 


I used the colors from Colour Sisters
and Sketch #301 from Sketch Saturday.

         

     The image is colored with my ProMarkers and cut with a rectangle die (Spellbinders.)  The mat is cut with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn.  I used a Darice embossing folder on the darker panel.  The card is embellished with a flower, a button, twine, and a bow with a pearl.

     Challenges:

     I'm nearly done with all the Valentines I need for this year; only a couple more to make and a couple which still need to be finished.  Get yours done and come enter them in our QKR Stampede challenge this week.  Looking forward to seeing your fabby creations.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConie

Precious sentiment to go with this two lovebirds (love snails). Great colors on this one Connie. Enjoy the weekend. A snow storm just started - getting 6-9 inches and another one coming on Tuesday.

Hopefully I have time to create Terry's Valentine present this week. I plan to alter a book/box to hold all of his cards from me, which he can't bring himself to throw out.

So darn cute. Immediately made me laugh.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

Your card has put a huge grin on my face. I am a newbie and have been so intimidated by all of the gorgeous pieces so this made me giggle and smile. I made cards galore back in 1996 and then sold my hundreds of stamps - many vintage - thinking I would never want to stamp again. UGH!!! Boy, did I make a mistake. Then I switched to photography and quilting, but now am years later returning to my card making. But it is hard. See all of these today inspires me to not give up and hang in there. There is going to be light at the end of the tunnel. Have a wonderful weekend. genie
