Pretty Valentine

Hellooooo!  I hope you have had a good weekend.  We are settled in and waiting on the snow and ice they are predicting for us early in the nmorning. Wonder what it's going to be like tomorrow?    

It's been a full week since I've posted a project of any kind!  We are right in the middle of our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading program at work.  This year I'm not only working all day each Saturday, but I'm Cheerleading director, so every Thursday night is tied up with cheer practice, too.  But it's so worth it!  This is a great program where each week we get to share Jesus with over 160 kids! 

This afternoon I got to spend a little time crafting and finished up a couple of cards I started Friday.  One of them is for my DT post for My Sheri Crafts which will go up Saturday.  Here's the other one:

The hearts are a Martha Stewart border punch, the lable is a cut installed on the Imagine.  I cut it twice, once at 2" and once at 2.10".   "Love" is from Lovestruck 2010" at 1 1/2".   

This is a 5 1/2 x 7 card, the background is cut from a scrap of deep maroon foil paper.  This is really beautiful paper with a nice shine.  The strip behind the lable is also a scrap of the foil paper. 

I pop dotted the the lable and used another foil strip to detail the inside and that's it!  I didn't do any inking on this card because I wanted it to have that sharp, crisp look.  I'm really pleased with the results and hope to enter it into a few challenges.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a really blessed week!
