With Love & Bling!


A very pink girly, lacey, sparkly Valentine!
The quintessential girly card! We have pearls, the blingy butterfly, the fabric lace, the MS punched scalloped edge, the pink tulle, the sparkly K&co "love" paper and some pink gems. How'd I do?
With a house where the boys out number the girls 2 to 1, I need this every once in a while! ha
The sketch is from Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch, sweet site full of inspiration!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, there were more than a few challenge themes concerning love, hearts and Val. Day! Checkout these challenges...Lili of the Valley~valentine, Daring Cardmakers~valentine, Daily Art Stop~love, Wednesday Stamper~lace, Created by Hand~hearts, Secret Crafter~hearts and the Loonie Stamper's challenge(love that name!)~bling! If you need a mojo boost, I'm sure you can find it at a few of these challenges!!!
We're having a beautiful day here in PA...temps reaching the mid 40's...there's still some snow on the ground but it will feel like summer today! Hope you are having a joyous day...knowing you are loved and someone cares! Blessings to all who read here!

Love this frothy pink concoction, Maria. You're right - we all need a bit of "girly girl time" bow and then don't we!
