Happy Valentines Day Joe!


Hello everyone! I have to say I finally made a card I am really happy with and luckily for me it is for my husband so I don't have to mail it anywhere where I can't see it! Ha! This is an image from Make It Crafty, I love Zoe's stuff but have to work on the merging thing. If anyone knows how to get rid of the white background that comes with some images I would love to know. My card base is kraft cardstock which I thought was a little more masculine than my normal white or cream. The dp is from this years Valentines paper pad by K and Company, felt flowers I made with my die from MFT and dipped in some glitter and the tag is one I made from an old stamp set and I apologize cause I don't know who made it. Colored with copics and added some stickles to the flowers and atyou glitter pen to her bows. Wish I had colored them a different color but they are acceptable.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Beautifully coloured image Amanda. I'm another fan of Zoe's work and you have used this one so well.

Might I ask you to please link to your actual blog post as opposed to your blog next time please hon. It makes it easier to find your entry that way.

In the meantime Happy Valentine's Day

Thank you for joining in with our heart challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.
