Be my Valentine.

Good morning well its time for another Creative Card Crew Challenge wow those 2 weeks have just flown by.
This fortnight its the lovely Sam's turn to set the challenge and she has chosen the theme of:

Valentine's

We are sponsored by Crafty Addicts for this challenge.

and the lovely Heather has given us this fabulous stamp for the winner: As always the DT have out done themselves and made some fabulous cards for inspiration which can be seen HERE.

Well ive gone and done it again and decided to come out of my comfort zone and try something new why oh why do i do this lol i only end up working myself up lol anyway i decided to try distressing and i quite like it lol what do you think?

I coloured this cute PB image in with my promarkers then used my Tim holtz distress ink pads and blending tool on the image and papers i quite like the effect.

The papers which are K& Co, Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch and Distress inks were all bought from Crafty Addict's.

I also made this card to fit in with the following Challenges:

Lili of the Valley ( Followed there sketch )

Challenge up your life ( Valentine's )

Creative Belli ( Heart's )

Secret Crafter ( Heart's )

Papertake Weekly ( Love Actually )

Sophisticat Challenge ( Love )

Well that's all from me oh i forgot to tell you about yesterday well we had a great time at the new craft shop opening i was very good and didn't spend that much really just got a few bits and managed to get 2 free goody bags well we all like a crafty freebie don't we? lol.

I hope you all have a great day,

Love & Hugs

Paula
