Our hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks this week is Melissa. We are on Challenge #24 and being as Valentines Day is Monday what else could we do but a VALENTINES challenge. Now the girls have offered up some super dooper inspiration to help start you all off. I am hoping that you will join us and show us what you got for our *heart* holiday.
Do you have a tradition for Valentines Day? In our house, we don't give cards, flowers or chocolate. We celebrate it by making homemade pizza that is in a heart shape. The size is dependant upon your age and size. We have so much fun making them and each year the kids are growing and so is the pizza they make. It is a super way to spend time as a family and gosh dang it I love them to bits and pieces.
Here is my card! This little beauty is a Whiff of Joy Stamp and she just makes me smile because of the way she is carefully holding the heart. Sadly I must admit that I got her a while ago, but wasn't able to use her until now. It sure felt good inking her up and coloring her. I embossed her and then colored her with copic's and stampin up markers. Punches were used by Stampin Up and Paper Shapers. Embossing Folders from Stampin Up and Cuttlebug. Pearls to add a pop and of course I had to use dazzling diamonds for her wings. The paper used is Kraft, Blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and whisper white. So this is my little bit of inspiration for you.
The challenges I am going to enter my card into are: Whiff of Joy Challenge: Theme Challenge - Love is in the air. Now this little cutie looks like she is thinking of nothing but love! Creative Belli Blog challenge this week is to use Jewelry (ie: pearls, gems, rhinestones, diamond) Pearls were used at my jewelry. My awesome color combo for this card comes from colorQ kraft, pretty in pink, pink pirouette, blushing bride and whisper white. Thanks girls, the blushing Bride was a bit of a challenge but I managed to make it work. My fabulous sketch comes from Tuesday Morning Sketches (I turned it, but other wise tried to kept it the same). All of these challenge blogs have amazing inspirations from their DT's be sure to hop on over and see their work. ** I have been invited to a new challenge blog called SweetStamps Blog. It is their first challenge ever and they are asking for Shades of Pink. Thank you so much for letting me know my card fits the challenge. I look forward to playing with you more often. Also you made my day with your wonderful comment.**
