happy valentine's day girlfriend!

Happy Saturday!

I love the weekends...it a great time for me to prep for the week and enjoy my crafty time! It's when I do a majority of my DT work for the following week...

I'm ultra proud of myself...I was able to super multi-task on today's card! I'm one of those peeps that has a hard time combining more than 2 challenges..LOL. Sheesh, I've seen people that have created gorgeous cards for 15+ challenges...can you imagine?

Well, check mine out...it doesn't cover 15 challenges but I'm quite happy with it:

My colors are based on the Embellish current challenge:

Great timing on the Pile it On challenge 29 of digi-images...

Photobucket


I thought it was only appropriate to use the new digi set by Regina, Valentine Family and Friends, especially since she is sponsoring the Embellish challenge!

Okay, here you go!

I've actually had the patterned paper by Teresa Collins for awhile...I have to admit that I bought it to design valentines day cards for pub submittals...well, I never got around to it. One of my New Years resolutions is to become published. Several years ago I was pubbed in Stampers Sampler and Take Ten...it was a total fluke...it was before I was a serious stamper/crafter...sent in the 1 card and bam...it was published...talk about luck. I don't even have a pic of it!

Anywho's, I had so much fun putting this card together...I'm lovin' the poms..haven't played with those in awhile...the AC Flair was a perfect find for this particular card! The button is out of one of my foof-a-la bag 'o buttons...love those...it's like a treasure hunt. I lucked out since my Janome was already threaded with white! I don't know what it is...well, I know what it is...it is the lazy bones-ness of me...I just don't like to rethread my machine...LOL.

Okay, thanks for stoppin' by...I appreciate it!

  4. love this! I know what you mean about threading the machine. In the time I take to procrastinate changing threads I could have stitched up 10 cards.
