Valentines Challenge From Lori!

Good evening everyone! Today has been a pretty good day but I find that I am a little bit tired. After school my son had his girlfriend Nicole over. She showed me her new E-reader and it looks like it might be fun to actually own one. We enjoyed supper then I was off and running took my other kids to rec night. While I was waiting to go pick up Robin and Kaitlyn, my very good friend Lori called me. We were having some good laughs and I told her my DH would be home late tonight soooooo she threw out a challenge to me. It was so much fun, we haven't done this for a while now because we have 4 Crafty Chicks with our other pals.

Here is Lori's challenge to me: Make a Valentines Day card and use any challenges you want. She said the store could use some V-Day cards...LOL. Of course she was right. Click here to see her card.

So the challenges I used are A Spoon Full of Sugar - VALENTINES is their challenge. Creative Card Crew - their challenge is to USE THE COLORS OF YOUR COUNTRY (mine are red and white for Canada). My next challenge was this cute sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Timeless Tuedays from Flourishes - challenge is to ADD SOME KIND OF HARDWARE TO YOUR CREATION (mine is the metal flower brad). With all of these challenges it helped get my creativiness flowing.

Here is my card:

I used whipser white and real red paper. The ink is basic black and real red marker. My 1" circle punch and my scallop punch. Several embossing folders, flower brad and hemp twine.

Thank you so much Lori for challenging me to make a card tonight. I really needed it and it was just a blast!!

Don't forget 4 Crafty Chicks has a new challenge tomorrow and Picture Perfect Creations new color challenge went up on Monday and there is still time to play.
