I Love You Valentine!

This week the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is all about creating a project that is about Valentines or Love. When every image that Phindy has in her store screams love in some form or another, this is really not a challenge. This image called Summer Blossom looks like she's playing "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not(minus the NOT of course). Of course, you're all surprised to know that I colored her with my Copics.

Don't you love these papers? I fell in love with them when I found them in the Create with TLC store. Most folks don't realize the products Paulette has in her store and at a very reasonable price. I love green and purple together. They just are such a rich combination.

I used Penny Duncan's free Scalloped Heart Shapely to cut the open hearts using my MTC software with my Cricut. Penny is so generous with her talents so be sure to check out her blog not just for free svg files, but also for some fabulous tutorials. Do you all realize how wonderful it is to cut a shape any size you need rather than the "packaged" size? I then sort of wove the hearts around the card, topped it off with a solid heart that is raised and my cutout image. I finished it off with a white heart(inside and backside of the remnant of one of the open hearts) with a hand written sentiment. I hit with green and lavender stamp pads and a bit of looped ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping in. I've fortunately made the challenge again by the skin of my teeth.
