Happy Valentine's Day!

Yep, it's VALENTINE'S DAY and I have a 'sweetheart' of a card to share with you!

I know, I've been going crazy with Valentine creations this year but I just can't help myself with all the beautiful papers, images, scraps & ephemera available at the Crafty Vintage Girl Store!

Crafty Secrets is my ALL TIME FAVORITE product line 
for the Vintage style that I love so much!
And besides ... with Valentine here that means SPRING is right around the corner!
Let's share those flowery, springtime thoughts to help us get
through the rest of this sooooooo bitterly cold winter!

How do you like my flower?
Again ... by using Crafty Secrets paper designs (Vintage Valentine kit) that I've printed onto plain printer paper, I've created this beautiful flower using the Sizzix Susan's Gardens 'Rose' die set.  A red rose is the symbol for LOVE but I prefer variegated roses so these beautiful papers worked perfectly for today's LOVE creation!

A few additional challenges:

Mod Squad Challenge - Thinking of Spring (flower feature)
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge - Anything Goes/add a flower
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Love/Valentine
Frilly and Funkie - Bloomin' Marvellous

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have LOVE in your life today!
