Hearts



Hi everyone and Happy Monday and Happy President's Day to those of you in the US. I cannot believe I haven't posted since Wednesday, I'm so sorry about that. We were finally able to dig out of all the snow (at least partially) and I headed back to work on Friday. We had today off because of President's Day which is nice, but I have so much to do at work, I'm kind of anxious to get back tomorrow. Are any of you watching the Olympics? I have been glued to the TV the last few days. I love the Olympics. The summer games are my favorite, but I love watching the winter games too.

Anyway, enough chit chat and on to my long overdue card post :) I made this as one of many Valentine's Day cards I sent out to friends and family. For this card, I used Elegant Heart Ribbon and Dangling Tilda (which I don't see in Diana's store but I'm sure if you e-mail her, she can get it for you) from Magnolialicious. I actually stamped the ribbon and then cut it out and covered it with Diamond Stickles. I cut Tilda out as well after coloring with copics (R81, R83, R85, R89, E31, E33, E00, E01, and E11) and added some Diamond Stickles to the hearts in her little container. I then created my card base using SU cardstock (Rose Red and Regal Rose). My design paper is also from SU. I used my SU Ticket Corner punch on the corners and then added pearls from Michael's. I adhered the bow and Tilda to the ovals (which I cut out using my nestabilities; I also ran the top oval through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder) with dimensionals. The ribbon is also from Michael's and I tied this double bow using my awesome Bow Easy. Finally, I added some primas and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added some punches from my Martha Stewart branch punch to add a little more dimension to the flowers. What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by, your sweet comments mean the world to me. Thanks again and have a wonderful day :)

Big Hugs, Christine
