Happy Sunday!  I have two items today!  I am still making some Valentine/Love cards!  I also have a sweet treat to show you, too.  This card is more of a love with a thank you theme.  I guess one can never have too much love of any kind, huh?  Speaking of love!  I am just lovin' some pom pom fringe right now.  I actually love the mini pom poms, but this size made me ga ga too!  I could not waste my two p-poms I had to cut off the ends to wrap around panel and adhere to back,  so I used one to top my pink bow and the other in the center of my heart!  Too cute!



For today's card I am using week 3 of the Viva la Verve February Challenges(VLVFeb2011)!  Teresa Kline designed this week's sketch.  I combined several Verve stamp sets to create the different elements.  I am using Verve's Because of You, Grateful Elegance, Celebration of Thanks, and Beautiful You stamp sets.  I stamped the floral image and stamped one of the flowers from Grateful Elegance.  I colored and added some glitter, cut out the flower and used a dimensional to pop it up a bit.  I then stamped the quote from Beautiful You.  I die cut the Jotted Heart Die  three times.  Once with the coordinating designer paper then with a piece of scrap cardstock to adhere to the back of the desiger paper to make it more sturdier.  Then, I die cut the heart out in vellum. I used my pinking shears to cut across the heart and my glue pen to adhere the vellum to the heart to create a heart pocket.  I used my glue pen to add a few touches of glitter around the edge of the heart and along the pinking edge of the pocket.   I then stamped some of the "thank yous" from the Celebration of Thanks set.  I punched these out with the word window punch and tucked them into my pocket.   I love the way my heart pocket turned out!



 The slice of cake to the left is for this weeks Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!  The  theme this week is“LOVIN’ FROM THE OVEN!”  For this weeks challenge you will create a card or project that has something to do with food! You are free to achieve this any way you see fit as long as it has something to do with FOOD someway, somehow! 


Check out the link to find out how to play along with us!  There is also a design team call going on now, too!  I must say this was the fastest and easiest projects I think I have ever put together.  For my cake slice, I used one of the Martha Stewart cake box party favors.  Instead of folding with the brown color on the outside, I folded with the white showing.  I glued on some red seam binding around the container to make it look like a layered cake.  I added a bow to the back.   Next, I stamped the Sweet Scallops die image from the Sweet Treats set.  I die cut this out with the Sweet Scallops die.  I then stamped the sweet treats in the center.  I added silver wire to the tag hole and tied it onto my cake container and made curly ques.  I added a few roses in different colors to work with the Color Throwdown #128 colors and my treat was done!  Just a fun easy way to get a quick treat complete!  Well, several Hershey Kisses actually completes this treat.
