Love

Good Morning!
Since I am home the month of Feb. I have a chance to enter some challenges. This is just a taste of when I retire in 7 years and I must say I am loving it. :).

I created this card for Our Daily Bread "Love theme or Valentines no pink or reds."

This is a 5x5 square card, I do love doing square. The paper is from basic grey, I used ODB sentiment from "Faith"  Used spellbinders heart die and the flowers my girlfriend gave me, added some pearls.

This card was just picked as a favorite over at SCS

This  next one is for Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge SC475

 
This is another 5x5 using SU very vanilla and black, layered with Fleur Delis square from Spellbinders. The flower is from Stamping Up "Bloomin Beautiful"

I am also entering this 
7 Kidscollege - anything goes

Oh my gosh, both of these cards are magnificent! Beautiful Valentine and your design of the second card is stunning.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I think 5x5 is a nice sized squared. If you go bigger it gets excessive. I love both your cards but the black, white and purple flower is so striking!!

Both cards are so lovely...I saw the first one at SCS and commented there...but this certainly deserves a second look...The second one is done with one of my favorite SU stamps...I could never get tired of seeing that one used...and I have those dies and they are just sitting in my drawer...but you have inspired me with this beautiful card to get them out and use them.

I haven't been ignoring you...but I have had horrid computer troubles. It took three days before I could get into my blog. As I post ahead it created some garbled postings. Thank you for the kind comments. I love your beautiful card!
