In Gear for Valentine's Day

This is my third card for the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Bowl Challenge which started on Sunday. Over the course of the day, 5 different challenges were issued (see below) and the crafting fun began. I have really enjoyed digging into my Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.

Challenge # 3 is Something Old.

For this card I used the fun image from a set called "Batteries Not Included". This is actually a set that I picked up at a craft yard sale last year. Unfortunately I don't have all the images and sentiments from the set (boo), but for this card I am making use of all the images I do have.

I decided to make a masculine valentine's card (maybe for the hubby - I don't think he reads my blog too often). The paper is My Minds Eye "Love Me". I added a few brads from my stash and Tim Holtz gears that I have had for ages. All "Something Old".

I coloured the image with Copic markers. I decided to make a card without using my glitter. Not sure the hubby's into glitter as much as I am.

 Inside the card I added another cute image from the Batteries not included set. The sentiment is pulled from a My Favorite Things set called "Love You With All My Heart".

The Krafty bowl challenges are open until Friday February 7 if you want to check each of them out, I have linked them below.

  3. Love your robot image - beautifully coloured. And that paper is to die for. Thanks for joining in with my challenge at CCM&M. Cxxx

  4. This card is so adorable and sophisticated at the same time! I loved how you used a whimsical image, yet you paired it with rich colors and Tim Holtz gears. And wow- you've got some serious coloring skills with the Copics! This card is a great mix of elements and your write-up was equally enjoyable. Don't feel bad-- I don't think my hubby reads my blog too often, either, bless him! I guess it's not their fault that they don't get giddy about glitter like we do! But your hubby is lucky to receive such a wonderful card. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

  5. What a fab image and I love how you've used the little cog. Many thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers and More. xx

  6. Thanks for joining Allsorts challenge with this great entry, good luck.
    Happy crafting
