Be Mine


Good morning everyone!! Can you believe we got over 2 inches of rain yesterday!!! One of our lakes is down about 18 feet so, needless to say, we are really excited about all that wet stuff!!! We may even have a littla grass this spring...whoohoo!!! I stayed inside all day and got a little stamping done....I have been making Valentines for all the Grands and more birthday cards.

 I made this Valentine for the Die Cutting Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. The typewritter die that goes with the My Favorite Things Just My Type set was used to cut out the stamped image and the paper die was used to cut the Bo Bunny Crush dp. The sentiment is from Verve's Hearts on Fire set. Sparkly sticker hearts finish it off.

This is also for the Ways to Use it challenge on Splitcoast to use at least two past challenges on our card. I used the WT308 challenge - I heart you to use hearts on our project, the WT329 challenge to use something old and something new (the stamp and die are new, the heart stickers are old), and the WT357 challenge to use stickers (my hearts)
This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Inky Impressions - heart you
2. Deep Ocean Challenge - sparkle and/or glitter
3. Oldie But a Goodie Challenge - have a heart (my hearts are from last years Valentine supplies)
4. Sweet Stamps Challenge - love
5. The Crafter's Cafe - CAS

Thanks for visiting...have a wonderful day!!!!

I love your typewriter image Joan. Such a great idea with the designer paper and hearts, too.
So pleased to hear that you got some rain. I remember you having a very dry summer. Hope you have a few more rainy days to help replenish your lake:)

This is so cute with the typerwriter and hearts, perfect for anyone. We got 5" but Lake Lavon was down 12' so it what was a big help.

Oh that's brilliant, Joan, I so love that typewriter image. It's great how you made the sentiment look like it's coming out of the typewriter, and the hearts are the perfect embellies.

I only today saw your comment on my blog....yes P did find his pressie in the end! lol. We had such fun doing the treasure hunt, but it took him till late in the evening the next day to solve all the clues cos I made some fiendishly difficult, he hee.

Good that you had some rain, I imagine it was much needed. CoB
