Bob’s Valentine <3

Hi there 🙂  Can you believe that January is already 2/3 done?? Seems like yesterday that I was getting Christmas cards ready to mail out!!  With it being the 20th, that means its the start of a brand new challenge at the Sheepski Designs Facebook group!!  The challenges are always ATG, as long as you use an image from the Sheepski Designs shop, or one of the freebies found in the group.  There’s an optional theme every month, if you should need help deciding on an image…this month, it’s “One For the Girls”.  If you find an image that you’d like, here’s a code, to save you some money 🙂

I’ve used the charming Bob, for my card.  I colored him with Copic markers, then cut him out with a stitched rectangle die.  I recently NEEDED more paper (it was on sale = I need)  and had a bit of forethought, so got the cute heart DP used here.  I printed the sentiment on the computer, then cut it with a wavy stitched die to make a border.  Some puffy red heart stickers were the only embellishment needed for this cute and simple card 🙂

Valentine’s Box

Good morning 🙂  It’s a new year, and time for a new challenge over at the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog 🙂  We have a fun theme this time, that might encourage you to stretch your creativity a bit and make a Box or Bag.  Of course, we have a fabulous sponsor, and they are:

3 sets of choice from The Cutting Cafe

I created my box with a template that I had on hand, and went with a Valentine’s theme…..what a change from all the Christmas makes lately!! I finally got around to getting replacement blades for my Cricut, so had some fun using the Paisley and Potpourri cartridges (yup, I’m old school and still love my cartridges 🙂 ).  I added some glitter glue to some of the hearts, and to the XOXO cut, and edged the box with some paper lace that I’ve had on hand for FOREVER!  A few shiny heart confetti pieces finish this box, ready for a Valentine surprise for someone special 🙂
