Are You Sitting Down?



Stamps: CTMH February Word Puzzle; Paper: SU Kraft, Rich Razzleberry, Kiwi Kiss, Melon Mambo, Kraft DSP, Whisper White; Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Versafine Black, Kiwi Kiss, Versamark; Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, Button Latte, Linen Thread, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Argyle CB Folder

Quite frankly, I have almost shocked myself! A Valentine. In the month of January no less!

Oh yes, there is a first time for everything, my friends. Maybe, just maybe, this will be the year I get cards made ahead of time.

Yeah, I am still laughing myself...but it was a nice thought. :)

I had so much fun with this card. It is made totally from scraps! 3 of the 5 hearts are cut out, one from a punch and 2 off my new Gypsy. :) I then ran the Melon Mambo heart through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The middle heart is blinged out with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Hey, a girl has to have her bling on V-day, no?

Thanks for stopping by today!

That is a beautiful Valentine (I typed vealentine first which would be very confusing and remind someone of dinner). I like the different cut out hearts, they look great.
