Last Valentine?

Well, I think this will be it for me until next year for the Valentine's Day creations. I love Valentine's day, but I'm ready for some other challenges! This one uses the free digi from The Greeting Farm that's available until Sunday, February 14th. Hurry so you can get it too! Patterned paper is SU! Candy Lane. I kinda combined two toots at SCS on a Flap Card and Peek-a-boo Treat Holder to make this one. Here's pics of the inside...

So here's the other challenges that this one will also be submitted for:
1. 365 Cards Day 345 - Ad inspired: I used the colors of the treats in the picture found at the blogsite
2. A Spoon Full of Sugar #90 - Recipe (1 pattern paper,1 Embossing,1 Button,1 Ribbon): I think you can see most of them, the only that might need explanation is the embossing. That "with love" sentiment on the inside is embossed and brushed with a chocolate ink to help it pop.
3. Allsorts challenge blog #39 - 3, 2, 1 (3 of something, 2 of something else and 1 of another thing on your project): got 3 eyelets, 2 ribbons/tape, 1 button 
4. Bee Crafty #24- real or pretend (faux) stitching / sewing, it must also include a DIGI IMAGE: just like my real sewing my faux sewing is also crooked! :)
5. C.R.A.F.T #37 - digi colouring: I used Prismacolor Marker to color this digi
6. Colour Create Challenge Blog #38 - RED, WHITE/OFFWHITE, CHOCOLATE and PINK. The optional extra, is SILVER and HEARTS: I actually got all of these in this one (the ribbon on the image is colored silver and the critter is holding a heart!)
7. Crafty Ann #7 - If music be the food of love... (theme of music, food, love or any combination thereof): I got food and love on this one!
8. Crazy 4 Challenges #24 - RED
9. Cute Card Thursday #99 - In the Name of Love

10. Dare You to Digi Stamp Friday #31 - punches+digi: I kinda stretched this punch is the word window punch that I used to cut out the place for the candy...sorry couldn't get a good pic of it...
11. Daring Cardmakers - Have a Heart
12. Die Cuts R Us Design Team #25 - LOVE
13. digital tuesday challenge #45 - It's all about the Animals" (Anything works as long as there is an animal somewhere on your project + digi)
14. Everybody-Art-Challenge #78 - Valentine
15. If the Shoe Fits… #22 - ribbon, hearts (as many as u want!), 3 eyelets
16. Jacksonbelle embellishments - “Love is in the Air”
17. Lots To Do #6 - "Love is in the air"
18. Other Lovlies - use a digital stamp
19. Paper Makeup Stamps #16 - make a treat box or candy holder
20. Pile It On #5 - To the one I love
21. Saturday Challenge #70 - MULTIFOLD
22. Simon Says - LOVE
23. Stamp Something - Something Cute
24. Stamp with fun #45 - Hearts
25. The Pink Elephant #53 - Mushy Gushy Valentine
26. The Pixie Cottage #9 - Love
27. The Sweet Stop #43 - sketch
28. Humble Pie Stamps - Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, Sizzix or Quickutz dies

And for my second creation for today. I decided to try out for the DT at 365 Cards and one of the requirements is to follow a sketch. Here's may take:
The stamps are from SU! "God's Beauty". That lovely crochet flower is from my fabulous dear mother (I've already ordered more! Thanks Mom!!). And here's the inside:
As always, can't just do one challenge since I look at sooooo many of them! Here's where else this one goes too (not too many this time!):
1. Fab ‘n’ Funky #10 - "Shabby Chic"
2. La-La Land Crafts Blog #25 - No Designer Paper
3. Our Creative Corner - Something Old (dig deep in our stash and pull out something that we purchased eons ago but never got around to using) - although only a year old, I haven't used this stamp set before
Well, that's it for today and probably the weekend as Malie and I have a puppy playdate tomorrow and then I'm going to Maui on Monday to see some family that are vacationing there. But don't worry, my Magical Monday post will be up on Monday in my absence. Have fun and if you're getting slammed by cold and snow, stay WARM!!

Gorgeous project, beautifully made with great faux stitching. Thanks for joining in the Bee Crafty Challenge :)


Well, I vote for you and it's not just because you're my DD! The Valentine card is beautiful and not just because I like candy! Your coloring and shading is soooo perfect, love the layered ribbons with that sweet heart button to tie it all together.

Your sketch challenge is so serene and peaceful. Again, perfect coloring, love the eyelet paper lace and I'll get my fingers flexed and warmed up to make you some more crochet flowers!

Wonderful, gorgeous cards. Talk to you later and tell Malie to be nice to her sister. Tell the McD's "HI!" for us!

Love, SAM aka MOM

Two amazing cards. I like the first one as the colours are so fresh and the image is fun. I think my favourite though has to be the second one. I love vintage but I seem to always find it difficult to do - not sure why.

Thank you for taking the time to enter this into the Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight. I was lucky enough to be a Guest Designer this month so I am looking at all the lovely creations and seeing how others interpreted the challenge. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Wow, they are both fabulous cards. So beautifully done! Love the paper and beautifully colored image on the first one, but the second one took my breath away. The deep, rich colors are beautiful. I like the distress ink on the script panel and the way you stamped the sentiment on the punched strip is wonderful. Thanks for joining in the fun at both Pile it On and Creative Card Corner this week.
