Buttons, Bows, & Lace!
Cathy is our hostess for the month of February and, of course, the theme is love! Use one of Mo's images that pictures love of any kind, dress it up with buttons, lace, and a bow and enter this week's challenge for a chance to win an image from Mo's store.
I have used an image that shows the love between siblings. It really does exist, but doesn't show itself often, unfortunately! This image captures one of those rare moments. An African American version is also available.
Tools: Copics, Mounting Tape, Glue dots, Wire, Tacky tape
Papers: SU! Rose Romance and Pretty in Pink, Neenah smooth white, Recollections DP
Embellishments: Buttons, Grosgrain ribbon, Lace trim.
So, conjure up something that speaks of love and enter Mo's Challenge for a chance to win!
A Few More Valentines!
I colored up several images over the past few days and have been going wild with Valentine's Day cards. I just can't seem to stop! LOL!
This first one uses an image from Make it Crafty. It's called "Geeky Love". I think it's adorable and was so much fun to color!
My sewing machine was giving me fits...the thread kept tangling and breaking. It finally just started to act right, so I still don't know what was wrong with it.

For the Guys
For this card, I used a free image that I got from Designed to Delight when I participated in a recent blog hop. It's now available for sale.
The little heart charm was yellow enamel....I colored it red with a Copic marker. Gotta love those Copics!
Inside it says, "Honey, You are my best catch ever! Happy Valentine's Day!"

Another free image...this time from Tiddly Inks. It's now available for sale.
If you look closely at the rocks I've displayed with this card, you can see that one of them has a funny little face on it. Years ago, my father and I were walking on Rye Beach, here in New Hampshire, and he just reached down and picked it up. He'd spotted the little face looking up at him. He's been gone for several years now, but I still have that funny little rock.
