-Be My Valentine!-Funday Friday Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, did you survive the snow storm yesterday? DS has another day off school today. It rained yesterday as well as snowed and so it iced over thus cancelling school once again. I hope if you are in my neck of the woods that you are staying toasty warm and off the icy snow and roads!

So get your craft on and come join us for this challenge!! Now onto my card. My heart background paper came from an old K&Co paper pad, my top note shape started out as a scrap piece of paper that I adhered one inch snippets of similar colors and then ran through my Cuddlebug with an SU embossing folder. After that I ran it through my Cuddlebug using SU's top note die. I love doing this as you can use up left over snippets and have a unique background. I used MCT's Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO dies to cute my hearts out of my top note shape, then I re-cut the hearts to fill back in with other snippets of paper. I stamped my wine glass and wine bottle from the 3 Twenty''s stamp set called Happy Harvest. I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and then I fussy cut them out and glued them down and then put glossy accents on the glass and bottle. I placed a cute MCT Fun Sized Stitched bow in the corner using another snippet. For my inside I used a snippet of the bow paper and some tiny hearts from the Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO dies. My sentiment comes from the sticker sheet from the K&Co paper pad. Thanks for stopping by for a second time today, I so love when you stop by and visit with me a spell. Crafty hugs, Brenda
