Sweet Heart

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Can you believe it's the middle of the week already? This week is flying by and I have so much to do! This is one of those rare weeks where I wish the work week would go by a little slower so I can get everything done :) Well, I've been in a Valentine card making mood this week so I have another V-Day card to share with you today.





I just love this sweet little lady bug from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge. I cut the lady bug out at 3" and used the "hide contour" feature on my Gypsy to hide its face. I then used my Peachy Keen Princess Face Assortment face stamp for her face. I used my white gel pen to do some doodling and a red SU marker to color in her lips. I LOVE my Peachy Keen face stamps, they just bring so much life to my Cricut cuts! Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is also from SU. I used my Martha Stewart heart border punch on the top panel of cardstock. I then added a ribbon and a bow, some pearls, and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The gorgeous sentiment is from My Creative Time's You Had Me at Chocolate stamp set. Finally, I adhered my lady bug to my card with dimensionals. What do you think? I decided to enter this card into Momo's Tuesday Challenge. Our challenge was to create a card using white, black, and hot pink and at least one heart. I love Momo's blog, it's because of her that I got back into using my fabulous Cricut. Thanks Momo! :)

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and for those of you in the middle of the blizzard, stay warm and stay safe!
