Dilly Beans Hearts Challenge
OOps, the day has gotten a bit away from me. Here's my DT card for the current Dilly Beans Hearts challenge. I've used one of the adorable new images in the Shop , #531 Ginger Set. Isn't she a cutie pie? I wanted to use some non traditional Valentine colors for this and took my inspiration from the pretty Basic Grey DP. The swirly flowers reminded me of her hair and the colors matched some of my conversation heart stickers so there ya go. She's colored with Copics and I've used a border punch from EK Success and lattice hearts from MS. Added a bit of crinkle seam binging and called it done. Be sure and stop by Dilly Beans to see the fab inspiration from my teamies and hope you can play along. I'm also ading this to the Simon Says Stamp Have a Heart Challenge and The Outlawz Copic/Promarker Valentines Challenge.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut that is. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 36 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
