Be Mine, XOXO, Wow, Hugs, Love

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well, I feel like I made some more progress on taking down and putting away the Christmas decorations.

Yesterday, I packed all 3 of my nativity sets and all of my nutcrackers. I got sidetracked and ended up organizing 2 closets but when that was done I was happy.

Seems like January is a month to get organized. Today, I tackle at least one of the trees. Check back tomorrow and I will let you know if my plans were accomplished (lol).

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for my Friday post on the Great Impressions Blog. Valentine's Day is approaching fast and if you like to make cards for this holiday as do I-here is one for you.

My image is the Great Impressions Stamp - "hanging candy hearts D363". I stamped and then embossed. Colored the hearts and bow with copic markers. Layered this panel on black cardstock and used a border punch. Just adds interest on your card.

From there I decided to go with red designer paper in dots and argyle. On the argyle panel I ran in through my heart paper crimper again for a little background interest.

I die cut a heart and stamped one of the heart sentiments. To get just the "be mine" sentiment I used a black marker and centered it with my stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.
On this card I finished the inside so I wanted to show you that as well. My sentiment is the Great Impressions Stamp "happy valentines and hearts D364". I die cut more hearts for the inside as well.

That's it for me today. Hope you enjoy your week-end. So until next time..........God bless.
