Wishing You Love

Howdy folks. Happy Hump Day! It's a dreary and rainy day here in Virginia. Yuck! The card I have to share today is my entry for a few challenges and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

And here is the card..  

 I used the adorable image titled With Love from Wags 'n Whiskers. Isn't she so cute!? I just got her about a week ago, hence the challenges to use something new. She was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I added some Diamond Stickles to the fuzzy trim of her boots. The card base is made from Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush cardstock and the patterned paper is Basic Grey's Bittersweet. The sentiment, stamped in PTI Dark Chocolate ink, is from PTI's Wishing You set and the heart, stamped in PTI Sweet Blush ink, is also PTI - from the Love Songs set. I used the Martha Stewart Mini Heart border punch on the brown paper and also the bottom layer. I also decorated the inside of the card this time around. I didn't follow the same sketch but used the same papers so that it coordinates. You can click on the smaller images below for a bigger view.

Well, that is all for me today. Thank you for stopping by and also many thanks for all of the sweet comments you leave. They really make my day. Have a good one!!

P.S. I Love You

The weekend is almost over. Sure flew by didn't it? I went and saw Avatar yesterday and wow! What a movie! I think it's the best I've seen and I'm a movie fanatic. I highly recommend it. The story and effects are incredible and it has a really great message. I admit I was on the verge of tears through a lot of it, even shed a few. I love when a movie can bring out so much emotion in its audience.

Anyways, on to the reason of the post. This is my entry for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21. I really like this color scheme. I've used only Papertrey Ink products. Their next release is just around the corner. Did you guys see today's peek? It is so cute and creative! I don't have a single baby set so I know this one will be going into my cart. 

 Okay, back to the card.. I used Aqua Mist cardstock for the card base and Dark Chocolate and Lemon Tart for accent pieces. The XOXO background, envelope, and sentiment are all from my new Love Songs set. The background on the Lemon Tart cardstock, stamped in Dark Chocolate ink, is from Background Basics: Retro. Embellishments include Lemon Tart Swiss Dot Satin ribbon and Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart vintage buttons. I promise the ribbon lays flat. It didn't photograph too well on the right end. 

NFL playoffs have begun. Any other football fans out there? My Cowboys whooped some Eagle tail last night. Yeah!! Well, I'm off to watch the rest of the Ravens and Pats game. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Love Birds

My first post of 2010. I meant to post earlier (I say that frequently huh?) but after taking a break during the Holidays it was slightly tough getting my mojo back. I finally found it yesterday and was able to get two cards done. Lots of pinks going on with this one. I think I went a little overboard.

The image is from High Hopes and I colored it with Copics. Other than that, oh and the Prima flower, everything else is Papertrey Ink. The cardstock is Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz. The patterned paper is the new Simple Valentine. I got the stack for Christmas. I love these papers! And to finish it off, PTI's vintage buttons.

I am entering this card in a few challenges:

I hope you all have a great weekend. I actually have tomorrow off, which is a rarity. I want to go see Avatar. It looks really good. Maybe I'll get another card or two done as well. I'll be back soon with my entry for Dawn's latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. :)
