Party Time Tuesdays challenge 53!

Oh my goodness, can you believe it's the end of the month ALREADY?? where does time go? I've been a party planner at PTT for a full month now, and I've been enjoying every single minute of it! I tell you what, these girls are just so AWESOME to work with!

The challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES!!!!!!!!! WOOT! Anything at all! the sky is the limit! So I've chosen to do a Valentines Day card because it's coming up fast, and I wanted really special cards for my loved ones this year.

We've been sponsored by the stupendous "There She Goes Stamps". And they were generous with each of us and gave us our choice of mini stamp set. I chose this darling set called "sending my love". And isn't it the cutest? I love these stamps! They ink evenly, the impression is wonderful, and they were TOTALLY fun to play with!

Here's a close up of the image:

I stamped my main image with black ink on white card stock and colored  it with copics. I added a few extra hearts that are included in the set, and the sentiment and cut it out with eyelet circles. My paper is MME and Recollections.  I've created three rolled roses. The larger two were cut free hand, but the smallest was cut with a MFT rolled rose die. I glittered them heavily and popped a pearl in the center of each..  I stamped the small XOXO (also included in the set) on a smaller eyelet circle and tucked it under the paper layers. Tons of bling and a pretty red and gold butterfly bow pretty much finished her up :)

I was so lucky to be asked to do a second card this week, and was able to use the adorable stamps of  Crafty Sentiments!!!! Since I really NEED valentines cards, I opted to make another,,,,,,,,

I colored this darling girl with copics, and then cut her out with Ovals large,,,,,,,layering on top of Lacey Ovals,,,,,,,,the flowers were both made by hand with my Rose Creations dies, inked and shaped using a stylus. The foliage is spellbinders foliage die. The paper I've used here is MORE of my favorite,,MME Lost and Found. And finally, I've created a bow on a peg bow maker out of tulle. A bit of ric rak, some blingy centers for the flowers,,,,,,,and she's all done!

I do hope you enjoyed,,,,,,,,,and I hope you stop by Party Time Tuesdays to see what the rest of the design team has for inspiration today! Thanks again for coming by, and I hope you enjoyed the card!
