Sweet Valentine

It's edging towards that time of year when some crafters decide to dust off those heart shaped punches. Perfect,because the theme for this week's Challenge at Scrapbook Sisters is "Sweet Valentine" 

So out came my most favourite piece of paper,I know that it sounds a bit odd but it even smells delicious!,well it did to me when I found myself rubbing it against my cheek lol! It's "Echo Park's For the record, Table Cloth"

I thought I'd use my freebie Country Companions Hedgehog stamp for my DT card and make him a little banner of hearts ,cut using my Cuttlebug and a Quickutz die. I stood him on top of my sentiment from an old Midnight Media set from at least ten years ago,it should say "I love you" but I masked the I.

The script I thought went perfectly with my "Cricut" Heart cut using the Calligraphy cartridge. I looped some lengths of ribbon to the edge,added a few of the scrummiest, twinkliest Crystals ever and placed it on the card using foam pads. I actually stitched the buttons in place to keep them perfectly secure.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
GG135, Favourite DP,
Penny Black at Allsorts, Hearts,
Alotas 75, Hearts,
Crafters Companion 20, Love,
Just Tracys,Love,
PLR6, Valentine,

TSB24, Die cuts,
IWD129,Bold and bright,
My Graffico 119,Love,
Paper Cupcakes,Frome the heart,
Polly Craft 123, Bingo,Top line.
Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Julie - how adorable and a great result! You asked about the clouds template on my blog posting for WOYWW - I made it myself just by drawing out on card and then cutting the shape - there's a great tutorial here : - scroll down to creating clouds and sky. It's Bev Rochester's blog and really worth taking a peek :)) Di xx
