2 Cards and a Tag

Happy Love Day Everyone ~
I have a few things to share with you, so I'll get right to it ~

My first card is for this weeks' challenge at CASology for the Cue Card Valentine:




I stamped flowers and vines from 2 different PTI  sets, and embossed the sentiment and flower centers with Liquid Platinum. A few small clear gems, and that was it.

*****

My next card is for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Lots of Love Challenge and Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 12 - Copic Coloring:




A very sweet and generous friend surprised me with a gift card to SSS, and while shopping, I spotted this cute little mailbox and heart die set. I thought it would be fun to have this pup sitting next to it, and added one of my favorite SSS sentiment dies.
  

*****

Lastly, I created a tag for this weeks' Tag You're It Challenge #40:




Jen Michel created a beautiful tag to inspire us...I used a large heart, her color combo, and use of stenciling for the background. It was fun to create, and now I have an extra tag for a gift!

 









So, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend,
