I've really been trying to play along in the weekly challenges over at Cheery Lynn Designs ... if for no other reason than to utilize my dies more often! I actually thought I had my card finished ... took the photo and everything ... then decided it needed a little bit more so added the olive branches and little red hearts. I really like the finished product and hope you do too.
Here's the recipe:
Papers: red cs, white cs, Bazzill pink cs, SU old olive cs, Crafty Secrets digital (Vintage Valentine) design paper, scrap of Paper Pizazz dp
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies: B117 Fanciful Flourish, B147 Olive Branches, DL102 French Pastry Doily Die
Stamp: Paper Inspirations G10277 Brushed Rose
Accessories: Wild Orchid paper flower, Tim Holtz distress markers (peeled paint and barn door), Tim Holtz distress ink (tea dye) & applicator, Spellbinder circle dies, Offray satin ribbon, red Stickles,
The little red hearts were what popped out from the Spellbinder Heart Circles die that I cut for a different project! (can't let anything go to waste you know, LOL!) Besides ... they look cute!
Here are a few other challenges that qualify:
A and T Emerald Faeries - Love
Celebrate the Occasion - Valentine Anything Goes
Loves Rubberstamps - All About Love

here's a peek at a few Valentine cards I put in the mail today ... yes today! I know ... what was I waiting for? Time just has a way of getting away from me! Better late then never they say! Grrrrr ...
All three cards were created using tags from the Vintage Valentine Digital Kit available at Crafty Secrets new store front Crafty Vintage Girl.
How do you like the pink ribbon heart at the top of the tag?
It was actually a fluke! I was trying to move the ribbon out of the way to do something else and all of a sudden I realized it looked like a heart so I quickly pierced a hole through it and added the heart brad. I just love it when those type of accidents happen!
here's a peek at the inside:
I was also able to use up the scraps of Valentine papers I had laying on my crafting table for these creations. If you haven't checked out all the new 'digital' products available through Crafty Secrets ... please do yourself a favor and click on the link above and take a peek! Their CDs are jam packed full of vintage deliciousness. And, how wonderful to have the ability to modify the colors, sizes and so much more to accommodate any project you have in mind to make!
Well, it's almost time to go relax and watch a little TV with hubby!
Thanks so much for stopping by and please come back soon!
Have a fabulous week and as always . . .
