With You By My Side

Finally a Valentine card! A culmination of 2 weeks of slowly adding items to my craft desk: a few Valentine embellishments... a new Martha heart punch... some new MME 'be loved' paper and some stamps from my stash that I thought would work for love's big day. I would peek in the room occasionally to see if any inspiration would leap off the desk, but sadly not. I guess I kept hoping the Valentine fairy would show up and throw something together while I was in the living room watching all my favorite shows on tv....hmmmm.

Okay. So Plan B: I actually walked into the craft room and got inky. Felt great actually. I'm not entirely sure if the mojo is back but I definitely had fun. At least my craft room is a disaster again... punched hearts, ribbon & paper everywhere (looks like Cupid had a tantrum).

Well I managed 3 cards - and here's one:

I'm trying to stay away from my "everything centered" approach so I tried laying things out a bit differently. I added a bit of paper piecing for the table cloth and some glitter to the milkshakes (doesn't everyone have glitter in their milkshake????)

Stamps: Instyle & Technique Tuesday (Ali Edwards) Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock, MME be loved, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Bazzel Accessories: silk cream ribbon, glitter Tools: Copics, sewing machine, Spellbinder oval die, glue pen, M/Stewart heart punch, SU corner rounder punch Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Creamy Carmel (sponged around image).
