Love you.......

Good Evening!
Tonight I have a card to show you that was from an inspiration challenge
that I had seen this week-end. I just fell in love with the picture and had
to try it out!

See what I mean!! How could I not join in with those buttons
and handwritten vintagey letters!  The challenge is here at
(If you don't want to play along you should at least go and see
her blog ~ everything is gorgeous!!!)

Anyways here is what the photo inspired me to do:
(Sketch is from last week's Sketchy Colors challenge)
(And the Double Dutch Challenge this week is
Be My Valentine!)

Now that I see the two together they are not that similar!! haha
My red is a bit deeper and my card a little more distressed!! LOL
(But I did use buttons, twine, script and a tag!!)

 I just love the cream and white mixed and I think it is
the first time I have tried it out!! I also just got this
ribbon and had to use it! I have been looking for thicker ribbon
and I found it at the dollar tree! I was so excited!

The adorable Hanglar image was given to me by
a very sweet lady who knew I would love them so she
sent me some during the holidays!!! I finally got up
the nerve to use them!
(Thank you so much!!! wink,wink)

The paper is from K&Co ~ 2 different packs and my
image was colored with distress inks and twinkling h2o's.
I also added some glitter to the red hearts and and the script heart has
a clear Sakura glitter pen smeared all on it!
I went with this sentiment as that is what I youngest has been saying to me lately!
I heart you!! I think she got it from Sunday school!! LOL

Well thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see who won the candy!
I am going to draw two names ~ the first will get to choose between the Oakley
stamp and I have another WOJ stamp from the Happy Mail collection that I
thought I had given away already!! LOL

Have a lovely day!!
