So much for thinking today was a bit cooler....its so sticky and the wind is very warm. Might need a trip to the school pool later....
This is my third and last entry to the Pretty Pink Posh - Valentine Challenge. Paulina gave you these four amazing Valentines cards to choose from and create your own design.
This time I chose Lisa's card (top left) as I loved the layout. I'm not very good at using ribbons on my cards, my bow-tying ability is severely lacking, so I had to come up with another idea:
I started off by die-cutting the 'twine' from silver coloured glitter CS and gluing to the card front. I then die-cut the 'hearts' from pink glitter CS and a similar coloured pink paint chip. I had already cut the hearts from some white craft foam, so I glued the pink glitter hearts on top and then alternated gluing them and the paint chip hearts over the twine. The sentiment was stamped in black and I added clear and pink sequins for a bit more shine.
The 'twine' die and sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. The 'hearts' die is from CAS-ual Fridays and the glitter CS from American Crafts. The sentiment is from Concord and 9th 'Love you. Mean it'.
I have five other challenges I would like to enter:
Tic Tac Toe Challenge # 3 (I used the first line across)
Simply Create Too Challenge # 102 (Love or Valentines)
CASology Challenge # 184
CAS on Sunday Challenge # 76 (Valentines)
Stamplorations CAS Challenge - February
Now I just need to work out what to make for dinner. Has to be something quick and doesn't require much heat to cook it, as standing in the kitchen with the oven and stove-top going turns it into a sauna in this heat!! Maybe I can suggest ice-cream sundaes again......
