Black/White/Silver Valentines & Blog Hop winner

The Blog Hop winner from Purrfect Sentiments is Maria Levine! Yay!!! Maria!!!! Jeri will be contacting you about your digi.

"You make me realize how beautiful my life is" is the sentiment on this non-tradition Valentine. No reds/pinks and no hearts except for the blue one on the tag. No sadness in the blue, just blue. This is my design for the new Paper Cutz Challenge. I used a FredSheSaid digi and colored it with multiple shades of blue and green Copic markers. The acrylic sentiment is mounted on plain white cardstock. The blue flowered ribbon is from Michael's. The black & white flowered paper was in my stash. The blue heart brad was there too.

Eris with her heart balloons is the focus of the Sew Many Cards Challenge this week: A Valentine color challenge in black/silver/red. The sentiment on this card is: The essence of Love is Kindness. I used the Metallic Silver paper from Paper Wishes, Eris is colored with Copic Markers and the red brads were in my stash. (I have a really BIG stash).

We always take a chance with our hearts when we fall in love. I've been in love with my husband for over 30 years. Take a chance in making your love a Valentine. Step out of the box. Make something beautiful from the heart.
