VALENTINES FOR FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY

 
I made this card for the "Truly Scrumptious" Challenge #50 and A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge #137 - photo inspiration.  I used BeLoved papers by My Minds Eye and these stamps:  wreath and bird circle from the July 2010 KOM - Happily Ever After; "You are loved" from the October 2010 KOM - Take Time to Laugh.  I used Adirondack and Stampin Up ink, my scalloped and plain circle Spellbinders nestabilities; a glaze pen by Sakura to accent the hearts on the birds.   

 This card used more paper from the My Minds Eye BeLoved collection and kraft paper by the Paper Studio.   The tree is from the "Everything Extraordinary" store kit available here and the word "Love" from the Tree-mendous Love kit.  The heart bling brads are from Oriental Trading Company and I used the fancy tag punch by Stampin Up.  The ribbon is from my stash and I attached it with my Tiny Attacher.  I used a sketch from Cute Card Thursday #149 and this is for Simon Says Stamps love is in the air Challenge    I used Stampin Up ink. 
This card was made using Daisy D paper and sticky back canvas by Ranger/Claudine Hellmuth.  The rose was stamped on some Prima paper.  This uses a variety of Unity stamps and ink by Ranger and Stampin Up. The rose is from the "Life Becoming" set; the journaling spot is the "Polka Dot" stamp; the sentiment is from the "Photo Love" set. I made this card for the Card Patterns Sketch 100 and Crafty Creations Challenge #103. 
Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to look for the blinky.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  We are supposed to thaw out a little over the weekend, but more snow maybe in the forecast for next week.  Gotta love our Texas weather!  Thanks for stopping by!
