Scalloped Heart (Hailey’s design, fundraising for Scleroderma), and Large Lower Case Polka Alpha Clear Set by A Muse Art Stamps; Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Warm Red; Pink Marker; Sakura Quickie Glue Pen; Prisma Glitter, Ultrafine Multi-Iridescent; Ribbon by May Arts; Wavy Square Frames Die for Cuttlebug by Provo Craft; Big Shot Die Cutting Machine by Ellison

Before heading out for CHA 07, this Valentine idea kept buzzin’ the back of my brain, so I had to quickly pull it together.   After cutting a window into the card front (that’s Fairy Dust, a pale shade of pink that I just love by A Muse–so soft!) with the Wavy Square Frames Die, I traced the opening of the window through the card very lightly with a pencil, and then stamped and colored the heart with a pink marker.  The heart seemed to beg for a little glitz to give that extra oomph, so I colored it in with a glue pen, and then applied glitter.


All the letters were then stamped, and as you can see, a very quick, yet special Valentine can be made with just a great heart image and a great alphabet set!   I love when something like this turns out just right, on the first run!  YEA!!!!

Right now, I’m actually sitting in SeaTac Airport, and it’s goin’ on 3pm . . . flight’s not until 5:00 . . . so, I had to do something to keep me occupied; I didn’t pack any good mags, so I figured I’d just pop in. (grin!)

And, now, I’ll mosey (sp?) on over to the SCS blog and post a little update over there. (wink!)
