365 Cards - Day 332 - This and That & D2D Super Valentine!

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards!! Today's challenge is a lot of this and a little of that...the this being "yellow" and the that being "cheer someone up". I used the super cute bulldog image and sentiment from Digis With Attitude. And to get the full challenge met, I added the sentiment on the inside too!
And here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. CardPatterns - sketch
2. Crafty Creations Challenges - Heat it up: This sunny yellow color warms me up!
3. Drunken Stampers - Sunshine
4. My Time To Craft Challenge - emboss, emboss, emboss: although I couldn't get it to show up in the picture, the bottom white edge is embossed with a sizzix circle folder...
5. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - black, white + 1 color: well I guess I've got two other colors with the brown dog and yellow, but I wasn't counting the image colors
6. Raise The Bar - N.E.W. (Nestie, Embellishments, white)
7. Some Odd Girl Challenge blog - embossing: see above
8. Stamps R Us - animal
9. The Res-Q-Challenge - Dry embossing: see above
10. There's Magic In The Air - tic tac toe: I used "something punched," "ribbon" and "bling"...well a little bit of bling in that rhinestone brad.

I also have a card using a Designed2Delight image. Every once in awhile I like to make supersized shaped cards from a single image and Kaela's Valentine image was perfect for this!! I paper pieced it with shimmery s.e.i paper and although I couldn't get a good pic of the inside, it says "Happy Valentine's Day".
Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Valentine creations
2. Creative Inspirations Challenge - celebrate: celebrating valentine's day with this one
3. Delightful challenges - Celebration
4. Hand Stamped Sentiments  - hearts
5. INKY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGES - tag it: gotta a little tag on this one
6. Lexi's Creations - Valentines
7. Order of the Opus Gluei  - key to your heart (use keys or hearts, or something you heart)
8. Paper Issues - Valentine's Day
9. Paper Romance Challenges - fun shape
10. pile it on - love is in the air
11. Stampin' Celebration - photo/color inspiration
12. The Creative Cottage Challenge - shaped card
13. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - valentine and love

Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see your creations!
