Be My Valentine

Hi my scrappin' friends!! I finished another card this morning! I love Valentine's Day. I used a digi stamp from StitchyBear Digital Stamps and colored her with copics. The dots on her dress were paper pieced. Whew, did that take a while. Those were some small dots! I don't know how I managed to not lose one. :) I broke out the sewing machine for this card. The poor thing has been stored in my closet for a really long time. TIP: If you haven't sewn on your cards before, try it out on a scrap piece of paper first. (I went through several scrap pieces trying the zig zag stitch) I handmade the red flower using pleated ribbon and alcohol ink. The other flowers are from I Am Roses. I used a large post card stamp to make my own mini post card. The sentiment is from Amy R Stamps Heart-y Sayings at All That Scraps. As always, I hope you enjoy this card. Have a Blessed day!

    P.S. THanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comments. Andrew is getting better - but he has "milked it" for all it's worth, and not done any school this week. LOL - It's nice to have friends who are homeschooling Moms who understand all those little struggles. We hope to get back on track Monday. Enjoy your weekend!
