Happy Valentines Friend!!

I intended to be here much earlier today with this, but I had a busy day elsewhere and didn't take time to play until now! I did clean up my stamp room this morning though, and got quite a few other things done around the house. Even made a grocery run-my first time out since Wednesday. And may I say-WOW! What big drifts we have!! We've not seen snow like this since moving to the country 6 years ago! The forecast is looking up though and we should see some melting going on this week!

OK, to the stamping! I created this card for the weekly challenge on Create with Connie & Julie. If you're looking for inspiration, check them out!! I am the proud winner of a subscription and am looking forward to lots of ideas and inspiration!!

The card base is Pretty in Pink, and is cut with the Movers & Shapers die with the Heart from the Punch windows set in the center so that the card opens on the side. See page 201 in the IB&C if you aren't familiar with the Movers & Shapers system. I also cut through the Whisper White layer. It was a little tricky to get the Pink & White the same to layer together nicely, but I cut the Pink before I thought about layering. My suggestion would be to cut the white & pink at the same time, and then trim down the white to layer on the pink. As you can see below on the inside of the card, the heart in the center is inside the card. You see through the top layer. The Whisper White was stamped with hearts in Chocolate Chip & Pink. I love these clear mount sets for lining up images!! Look how well the pink heart is set inside the dotted Chocolate one-with a stamp-a-ma-jig! The Pretty in Pink Striped Grosgrain was tied around the White layer, and a new Sending Love brad, also in Pretty in Pink was added through the ribbon. The saying is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and punched with the Modern Label punch. The Chocolate Chip layer was also cut with the Punch Window die.

Enjoy friends and I hope you are all having a good weekend! Back, soon!!

Note: click the picture to enlarge the picture to see the detail better! Pretty in Pink is very light and doesn't always show up well, and my scanner didn't do a very good job!! Thanks all!

I was originally planning to use the movers & shapers heart for my challenge card and then went in another direction - I still need to make one. Thanks for sharing yours!
