Rollin' By to Say Love You

Today I have been enjoying a rare quiet day off from work. Usually on these days I have appointments or errands to run, but nope today was free and clear to create. I dropped the girls off at school and went straight to the crafty cave.

This morning has been very productive and I have managed to complete a few items from the crafty to do list:

  • Finishing touches on my oldest daughter's Valentine's book marks 
  • Cut all essential pieces for youngest daughter's Valentine's (she is going to assemble after school)
  • Complete a card
I have been trying very hard to keep up using my new stamps as I purchase them; so I was happy to use a second image from the "Lulu on the Move" set by Cheryl Alger by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

There is a fun challenge going on over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog # 216 "Unconventional Valentines". The challenge is to use an image that you wouldn't normally use for a Valentine's Card. Well I think cute little Lulu on her roller-skates fits that criteria. I also decided to use colours that aren't typical Valentine's colours (using some card stock from my stash). I am also impressed that no pattern paper was used. I haven't done that often.

I modified my sentiment to use the "Rollin' by to say" removing the "hi", then adding the "You" from a MFT set. Now I have "Rollin' by to say {heart} You".

Adorable Lulu is coloured with Copic markers. I also added Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Glitter to her roller-skates and hair baubles.

Inside the card I stamp a sentiment from a MFT stamps "Love You with all My Heart" and used a Lawn Fawn die "Stitched Journaling Card to create the heart border.

Thanks for joining me today and checking out my latest Valentine's card. Have a very crafty day!
