BBTB2/Hearts


Happy Valentine's Day. Oh my oh my, I am sending many Valentine hugs out to all of my design team sisters, my bloggy friends and visitors. Our challenge this week was chosen by my talented DT sis, Susan, who asked us to design from the MS Seasonal Art Cartridge and to use the heart border and one of the lacey hearts. I do not own this cart so I went to Give A Hoot and used the heart border on Page 45. I cut a LOT of heart borders for this card. My card base is white, and I've mounted several white embossed borders on a black cardstock. The feature of the card is a red strip of hearts that were also embossed. I have an old candy jar full of big ribbons that came from hither and yon so when I saw that beautiful gold ribbon, I just had to use it on the card.

I created the sentiment on my computer and cut that out with an oval Nestie, and embossed the white oval which has been placed on a fushia and red oval. Two heart stick pins were added for a final touch.
I hope your day is special. Thank you for stopping by. I love all of the cards my DT sisters created. I am just so honored to be on this team with these talented ladies.
If you happened to notice the 3 beaded pink felt hearts at the top of this post, these are Valentine gifties for my friends where I used to work before I retired. I used to be a wonderful beading gal but my hands sometimes work against me and I don't bead small things now. I did do these 3 hearts. If you would like to see beading beyond compare, see my friend Paulette's blog at http://beedeebabee.blogspot.com/and prepare to be totally taken in by her wonderful beading creations.
