Yep, More Love Cards!

     I swore I was done making cards for this holiday, but I started printing out digis with my new printer and had a fun day coloring.  These digital images are from Meljen's Designs.  There are freebies offered on a regular basis and I just adore the designs!


     The first card is called Love Bunnies, and could actually be used for other than Valentines Day.  My base is Ocean Mist Pure Luxury card stock, with layers of White and Grass Green cs, as well.  The designer paper is from K&Co's Sweet Nectar collection.  Coloring is done with Copics and sponging is with VersaMagic ink.  The flower is my first attempt at making my own out of fabric.  I have never cut fabric with a Nestabilities die before and was surprised it actually worked.  I had to loosen it in a couple tiny spots, but I was pleased.  I also loved that when I handled it, the edges started to fray.  I spiral cut my scalloped circle, and started winding it to a sticky circle I punched out.  My center is made from scrap pearls (broken necklace) and Gala Glitz.  I used Beacon's 3 in1, quick grab glue, globbed in the center.

I would like to enter this card in Meljen's Challenge #96, to use pastels.


     Card two has a Meljen's Design image that is called Love. Aren't these little mice just too cute?  For this card, I started with a White cards base, layered with Soft Suede from SU!  The designer paper is again from the Sweet Nectar collection.  The image was colored with Copics, sponged with VersaMagic, and cut out with Spellbinders Lacy Ovals die.  I add assorted ribbons, a Prima flower, puffy sticker heart, and an adorable lock charm I recently won.

     Geeze, it sure felt good to use some of the digital images I have saved on this poor old computer.  I really need to back up all of these treasures!  Ugh!  Thanks for stopping around.  We are having a pretty snow this morning in my part of PA.  The perfect snow, covering the grass, and leaving the roads bare.  Great day for crafting!
