The picture reminded me of my youth, first. Everybody's homes had samplers of some sort hung in their homes. Then it reminded me of my gratitude for the friends I have made here online. They are more than friends now; they have become family! Then there are the hearts on it; they reminded me of love. Not just the love for family, but for God, friends, home and every little blessing we receive every day.
With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, my choice was pretty simple. You will find the set I made my card from at the Happileigh Scrappin' Store. Leigh does fantastic image work. The set I used is titled Valentine Heart Wreath; the wreath I used is part of a set. The set includes the wreath shown, a beautiful tag, a grouping of four small hearts and a larger winged heart. What more could you need to send love winging someone's way? Here is my card:
I hand stamped the background using SU Mango and Taken with Teal; I also used a 4-piece mini SU set and this was all tiny hearts. I hand cut the heart card shape and inked the edges, again, with Taken with Teal. The main focal image is the Valentine Heart Wreath from the Happileigh Scrappin' Store. It was colored with Prismacolor pencils and a bow with a clear rhinestone center was added. I also hand cut out the focal image; in the center I applied clear Stickles and covered it with pink glitter. I hope you like the card!
And now for this week's challenge. This picture is just too adorable for words. You have all week to work on it. I just know we are going to see some wonderful work from this image.
I immediately knew I had to play with one of Leigh's newest images "I Do". It was just so appropriate for this picture, so here it is:
The picture also said "love", in general, to me. That meant I had to also give "Tatter's Valentine" a go...in all his glory, here's Tatter:
