Happy Tuesday! How is everyone doing? We are having nice weather here. It is 41 degrees right now, which is warm considering what it has been and it's not raining or snowing!!
I keep seeing everyone's Valentines day cards and I wondered what I wanted to do. I am not a person who buys alot of "Valentine" things so I went through my stamps and picked this Sugar Nellie image. I won this last year and thought immediately that this would make a cute Valentines Day card. I also have been in the red & pink mood since I got my SU DP last week. This is more paper from the pack. I really love this paper!
It also gave me a chance to use the new buttons from SU and their new punch. I have the corner punch also but I am having a really hard time figuring out the dimensions to use to "punch around the page". If anyone knows a smart person who has figured this out please let me know. I love the punch and would like to use it around images or cards.
The challenges this fits are:
Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts and Romance - I bought this heart punch for $1 from Michaels. It is one of those little things you pick up and use alot. The romance is the kids kissing.
Crafty Catz - Love. Young love is so sweet.
Mojo Monday - Sketch - I keep saying I am going to do one of their sketches and I love this one.
Caardvarks - Red Hearts - I think the little red hearts on this card really makes it.
Practical Scrappers - Designer Paper - All I can say is I love this pack and what would we do without it!
Incy Wincy Designs - Buttons, Bows, Ribbon & Lace - I love all of them so it was easy to work them into this card.
A Spoon Full of Sugar - This is a freestyle challenge. I love this card and wanted this to me my anything for this challenge.
Totally Gorjuss - Add Dimension. I think this card has alot of dimension with the buttons, bows, popped up image.
All Sorts - Hearts and Flowers - I love the little hearts on the side and put the buttons as the middle of the flowers
