Challenge Fun!

It feels SO GOOD to be back playing the challenges!
Today I scoped out some of challenge over on Feline Playful that caught my eye and this is what I came up with.

The SKETCH comes from the challenge over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  Other elements of this card came from the following challenges:
Joan's Gardens - use hearts, red/pink & white, embossing, embellishment
Perfect Sentiment - Valentine Sentiment & Vellum
Color Create - Red, Cream, Sage Green
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Bearly-Mine - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiment - Love & Romance
My Time to Craft Challenge - XOXO Hugs & Kisses

Well, now that I've had some challenge fun, guess I should go do a little work around the house! LOL!
Laundry is starting to pile up and I promised hubby stuffed peppers for dinner!
Better get busy!

** EDIT **    My work is done and I have a few minutes and decided to create a second card for Joan's challenge.  (It just felt good to create today ... guess the mojo is fired up for 2012...LOL)

 Now I can relax with hubby for an evening of TV and conversation!

You have been busy today Darlene. Both these cards are so pretty. I commented on the second one at SCS. I like the way you used the vellum over the background in the first one. We always love to see your work. Thanks for joining us in our challenge at Joan's Gardens.
