Hearts and Valentines

At Creative Belli  this week the challenge is themed Heart/Valentines!  You have one week to submit your entry and be sure and check out all the inspiration from the Design Team.  Remember, in keeping with the spirit of the Belli Challenge, use your old and forgotten embellishments!


I decided to go VERY clean and simple with my hearts and lovin' you Valentine.  The image was a free digi from Beyond the Fringe and I added a SU sentiment to it.  The ribbon is some from my stash and the little heart charm was buried under a bunch of  unused stuff I had.  As I said, a clean and simple (git 'er done) card but will be a cute one for the upcoming Valentine's Day celebration.

I'm going to be taking a small (very small) blogging break here but hopefully will return on Saturday or Sunday. I may try to post a card for Friday (not a Funny Friday though - maybe next week!) but we'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks for stopping by..........and be sure and head on over to the Creative Belli blog and submit your entry.

Lynn, to me this card is just extraordinary. What a fabulous freebee. That shade of ribbon is stunning and that cute little charm add so much for such a little piece. I will miss seeing your blogs for a few days, but I guess I will survive. LOL. Hope all is well and look forward to seeing you and your terrific cards soon.

Lynn, I saw this delightful card of yours early this morning and got the bug to make one more card with hearts on it. I've done all my Valentines but couldn't resist the challenge at Creative Belli. Just as I finished it, a neighbor came by and I think I have it sold to him for his girlfriend. Thanks for the inspiration! :-D
