Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!
To be totally honest, I'm not really much into Valentine's Day so I don't have a Valentine's card to share. The closest I could get was a card that uses a shade of red.
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, Cosmo Cricket Gretel DP, SU hodgepodge, Kaiser self adhesive pearls, misc ribbon.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!

Here is their sketch:
Unfortunately I don't have any Little Paper Shop stamps to use for the sketch but I thought I would play along anyway. For my card I FINALLY used one of my Whiff of Joy stamps. I have loved this image since it was released. I bought it the day it was available but I have never used it until today. I'm still working on my coloring technique. I'm really starting to like my Prismacolor markers!Supplies used: Main image from Whiff of Joy, Sentiment stamp from SU, Basic Grey DP, SU CS, Cuttlebug embossing folder, misc ribbon, foam dimensionals, Prismacolor markers, Kaiser self adhesive pearls.

I hope you are all having a terrific week! Thanks for stopping by today!

Jacksonbelle has a HUGE selection of Basic should definitely check them out!

DRS Monday Challenge!

Can you believe that Valentine's Day is Saturday?! Where does the time go?! This week the DRS team challenge was to make some sort of Valentine treat/holder...for food, candy, cards...whatever inspired us! We would love for you to play along...just post a link in the comment section of the challenge post on the DRS blog so we can come take a look and be inspired by you! If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword DRSC14. It's not mandatory that you use DRS images, but if you have them why not use them!

So to be totally honest, I hate to make things that aren't cards or scrapbook pages. I just pretty much SUCK at gifty, non-card items. Here is my best attempt at altering is just your basic Altoid tin wrapped in ribbon and covered in paper. Nothing too fancy but it works for this challenge. Check out the DRS blog to see what the other design team members came up with for this challenge!
Hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to check back tomorrow for an awesome Jacksonbelle sketch challenge! Have a great day!
