with all my heart

Well this is pretty unusual for me to post 2 cards in the same day, but here I am. This one I made for the My Favorite Things guest designer contest. Today is the deadline and I wanted to have it blogged before noon.

I used the MFT pure innocence image - "with all my heart". I love these sweet little girl images.

They so remind me of my precious granddaughter Phoenix Daisy. In fact, this is her card for valentines day. She is only a year old but she loves looking at the cards I send her and then trying to eat them of course (lol).

The PI girls are so perfect for paper piecing. That way you can change her outfit a lot. Just the ways girls like to do it!!

I stamped my image and paper pieced her dress with patterned paper from BoBunny. It's the "sweetie pie swoon collection.
And, then colored her with a combo of prismacolor pencils and gamsol + copic markers. Cut her out and layered her atop a doily image that is also from MFT.

These are such great die cuts and work well on my big shot. 

The middle rose red heart panel was run through my heart crimper. The layout on my card was last weeks MFT Wednesday getting sketchy #56. It was a good starting point for my card.

Well that's it for this post. So until next time.......God bless

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafty Boots has a valentines challenge
2.  Lexi's Creations alos has a valentine's theme.
3.  Lollipop Crafts has a valentine's challenge.
