All You Need Is Love

The weather outside is SO COLD......but, thankfully it's warm and cozy in my craft room.  I made myself a big cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream, and got to work.  I wanted to create a card to be able to enter several challenges I learned about this week.  If I'm lucky, I will be able to get one more finished this weekend.  However, like everyone else, I have a long list of things to get done.
My card has a kraft paper background, and some pattern papers from Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket.  They're a much older set that I found at a garage sale last summer, but they're really cute.  I used a little wooden heart that I won from Freckled Fawn, and the stamp (All You Need Is) going up the side is from Papertrey Ink as is the LOVE die-cut.  It's a pretty simple card, but I like it.

These are all the different challenges I've found this week where I can share this card.  I would love to win, but even if I don't, it's still fun to play along:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Monday Challenge - We Love Stamps

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Wednesday Challenge - Let's Get Krafty

Word Art Wednesdays - Challenge #119 - Anything Goes

Just B Creative Crazy - February Linky Party - Just Because

The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog - Love - I used a kraft paper base

Frosted Designs Challenge Blog - Friday Challenge - Love Is....What Love Means To Me - I used the sentiment "All You Need Is Love" because I feel like as long as we have the love of family and friends, we will always be SO blessed!  It's all about the LOVE!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I've been trying harder to comment on people's blogs, and I've been following everybody in the hopes that they will follow me in return.  I would LOVE to have you all as followers, and I will follow each of you in return.

Have a great week everyone!

Be My Valentine

I took some time this morning to create some things for a new blog post.  I feel like my poor blog is neglected.  I wanted to share some sweet Valentine's Day cards I made.  I'm always up for entering a couple of fun challenges, and trying to connect with the blogging world.  I just find it fun, and have met some truly lovely people.

I used scraps from my craft table, some seam binding. machine stitching, a sentiment from Michael's.  A little flower and brad, some leaves, and miniature pearl accent stickers.  Nothing to terribly fancy.

I love using twine/baker's twine or jute on so many of my cards.  I tend to do it a lot on my cards and mini albums.  I found some fun challenges where I could share this trendy embellishment right here:

Word Art Wednesdays - Challenge #117 - Anything Goes

V's Sweet Ideas Challenge Blog - Challenge #20 - Use Red, Pink and White for Valentine's Day!

Little Scrap Pieces - Happy Valentines And Fun Friday Linky Party

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says, "Have A Heart"

I'm still in my craft room, and I think I'm going to have time to post another card today or tomorrow. Here's to keeping motivated!

Happy Crafting,
