Feeling Sketchy got me started on this first Valentine. I knew I wanted to use a combination of hearts and flowers so I started with my pink scrap drawer and found this great background along with hot pink ticket stubs for the border. I got into my container of leaves and picked 3 in dark green. I added little flowers with bling in the center and punched three pink hearts. The butterfly took awhile to find, some were to big or small or too pink and then I remembered these colored sequin ones in my stash. I chose silver to add some shine. The effect is a fun collage that I think my older daughter in her twenties will enjoy. Along with the chocolate I need to buy and get in the mail this week!
I lost a sweet stamping friend to cancer this year, and this second Valentine will be for her husband. He gave me almost all her craft supplies, and I found this page completed in one of her coloring books. I die cut the heart out and put it on a Victorian background (since that’s what she adored) and added a sweet little cherub and a little sparkle to the middle. Holiday’s must be hard, and I’m hoping this will be like a little hug from above.
