Rosey Valentine

Hello All,

Today's card is a soppy romantic one for Valentines Day. I will be entering it into three challenges.

The first is Our Creative Corner

who have this sketch,

The second is Dynamic Duos who want us to use these colours,

and last is Stampin' Royalty who want a project with Love or Valentines in mind.

Here is my card

All the flowers were coloured with Write Markers and 2 step stamped onto white card, cut out, and one of the two roses raised on 3D pads, and all placed on a white Nestabilities Label. The leaves came from the SU bird punch, and while using it I saw that the birds wing could be used to make a heart, and these too were stuck on 3D pads

These pictures will show you how I saw a heart form

Recipe :
Card = Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Green Galore, White card FMS
Stamps = Baby Blossoms, and text stamps that I've had for years.
Inks = Real Red, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Gumball Green
Tools = Big Shot, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Bird Punch, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis pendant and Label
Extras = 3D pads

Yesterday I helped my 5 year old nephew,Nathan, make his Valentine card, but I forgot to photograph it so I'm waiting for my sister to do it and email it to me, so I can show you his crafting talents.

I thought I'd also show you a photo of Boris, one of Santa's Army Elves ( who I made up for Nathan ) and the Primo version I made for him to go on the Christmas tree ( and who also had a starring role in the school Fairytale day ). So my niece, Sophie wouldn't feel left out, I made an Angelina Ballerina Mouse for her.

I hope you don't think that I'm losing the plot!!!! but doing these silly things has helped me get through the last 6 months or so.

Anyway, Thanks for dropping by today and have a good weekend
