Hello dear followers. I know I've not been posting as often as I used to. With several of my DT closing down, I'm afraid I've gotten a bit lazy about creating. Of course, the unusually cold weather we've had in the south this year hasn't helped. However, Sami has a wonderful new release that I'm very excited to share with you. I was a bit more conservative this week and only took one image with which to work -- but isn't it a cutie? Well, ALL of the new images are cuties and since I've not yet shared my card with you, you don't know which one I'm speaking of. OK, here it is:
Now these images are perfect for Valentine's Day, but don't stop there. They would also make adorable cards for anniversaries, birthdays, thinking of you -- well, just because they have hearts in the design doesn't mean they have to JUST be for Valentines, eh?
I used the Pretty Kitty Heart image. I colored the kitty-baby to look like a Siamese in honor of a beautiful Siamese kitty I had for 14 years before she peacefully passed away. I paper pieced the heart using some old paper I had in my stash and then cut the image into a square shape. I matted it with black card and then placed it onto a lacy square by QuicKutz. My card base is white, 5.5" square, matted with black and then a beautiful DP by Paper Crate. Keeping with the red and pink colors of the DP, I added a red gingham ribbon and bow, pink rose and a lovely swirl from a Marianne die. Lastly, I added two red baubles to the top right corner. I rather liked how everything turned out and hope you do, too.
Please visit Sami's blog and see the lovely cards that the other DT members made using the images from this adorable release, and then hop on over to the store and pick up a few. You'll so love playing with these images!
