My Funny Valentine and A Scrap in Time


Now ya'll know that while living over in Sicily I was deprived of such luxuries as a craft store right? WELLLL, I am over the moon, skippity do da, happy happy over joy joyed to have discovered that I have the LARGEST SCRAPBOOKING (aka card supplies) store on the Gulf Coast and it is right here in CRESTVIEW!!!! It is only about 5 miles away from my front door!!!!!! Poor things had no idea what kind of freak was entering their doors when I told them that I was going to lay down in the floor and make carpet angels on the floor!!!!!!!!!!!
CHECK OUT MY PERSONAL CRAFT STORE
"" A SCRAP IN TIME ""
SOOOOOO,,,, 3 hours later I narrowed down my desire to purchase $10,000 worth of supplies!

This card duo was created with a line of products that I purchased
"Be My Valentine" by We R Memory Keepers

I created these Valentines for my nieces

Close up so you can see the sweet little button
(thank you Linda for the cupid and heart buttons)
Notice they are almost identical???
Goodness forbid that I make them too different, they might think one is prettier and therefore, I must love one niece more than the other!!
I don't think you can really tell but the stitching is actually aqua

CHALLENGES I USED:
Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Buttons, Buttons Buttons
Corrosive Challenge: Button it up
Pile It On: Punch It (I used Stampin Up's scalloped border punch)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Love is in the a
Cute Card Thursday: Banish the Blues (use a funny image or sentiment)
Crazy 4 Challenges: Valentines

.................Supplies I used...................
Patterned Papers: We are Memory Keepers (be my valentine)
Cardstock: Stampin Up (pretty in pink), Paper Trey Ink (Aqua Mist)
Misc: Ribbon: Martha Stewart, Large Aqua Mist buttons (Paper Trey Ink)
Tools: Stampin Up (scalloped edge punch)
