Happy Valentines Day

It's Friday!!!  YEAH!!!  It has been a long couple of weeks at work and I can really use this weekend!  It is suppose to be cold here but no snow so that means I can actually get out of the house and have fun or stay in and make cards.  Either sounds good to me!

A couple of weeks ago I got picked as a top cards at Raise the Bar.    They invited me to be a Guest DT last week but I was too busy to make a card and they were nice enough to invite me to Guest DT this week.  The theme of the challenge this week is Valentines Day without using Red or Pink.   This opened up a world of possibilities.  I choose this great stamp by Mo Manning.  She is so cute with all the flowers.  I, of course, went with Blue and Purple as my color choices.   You should pull out your Valentine or Love stamps and pop over to Raise the Bar and play. 

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Mo's - Valentine with non traditional colors - I always think Pink or Red for Valentines so this is with Blue & Purple.
Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts - I love my Heart charms, especially the one I picked for this card.
Incy Wincy Designs - Love - Isn't that what Valentines Day is all about?
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Love minus Red & Pink - I had alot of fun making this card with non-traditional Valentine Day colors.
Ooh La La - For Someone Special - A Valentine's Day card is always given to someone special
Stamp with Fun - Love - Valentines Day is all about Love
Stamps R Us - Valentine/Love - One & the same in my opinion.  This card would be perfect for a child to give to a parent.
The Crazy Challenge - Lots of Love - Lot's of Flowers say Lots of Love.
The Pink Elephant - Valentine - I think this would be a great Valentine for someone you love.
Aly's Sunday - Bling - I have the pearls, glitter on the flowers & the dress as my Bling
One Stitch at a Time - Do it with a Digi - I love Mo's digi and this one just stole my heart
Scrappy Frog - Love - Yes Valentines Day is right around the corner.
The Crafty Pad - Love is in the Air - Love is in the Air this time of year.  I hope everyone gets as many flowers as this little girl is holding.
Crafty Creations - Use 3 Words - This was easy.  Happy Valentines Day
Fab & Funky - Tempting Texture - I have my flowers and Lace as my texture on this card.
Fresh Brewed - Charm - I love my heart charms.  I especially like the one I used on this card.
Gingersnap - Charm - I love the look of charms.  The are a great embellishment.
Creative Craft Challenge - Hearts & Flowers - I have my heart charm and the flowers the cute girl is holding
Do it with Digi's - Valentines - I love this Stamp for Valentines Day.  We all love receiving flowers
Creative Stamp Friends - Valentines - This little girl with the flowers is such a nice way to say Happy Valentines Day.
CRAFT - Valentine - I wish I was getting this big bouquet of flowers on Monday.
Cute Card Thursday - Hearts & Flowers - I have my charm and my image for my hearts & flowers
Dutch Dare - Love is in the air - With Valentines day so close Love is definitely in the air
Pixie - Valentines - A hand made card is a nice way to say Happy Valentines Day
