Love is the key

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a crazy ice storm here this morning and it delayed schools for a couple of hours. Tomorrow its supposed to go up to 60°. We may even have a thunderstorm and then it will return to normal winter weather. That would be around 25° for a high temperature.

The days are getting longer its still light at 5:40 pm and getting lighter earlier in the morning. Before you know it the tulips will be popping up.

Anyway onto my card for today. This is the sample I made for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Becky is our hostess and she chose a great color palette with island indigo, daffoldil delight and lucky limeade.

I decided to make another non-traditional colors valentine's card. I chose my designer paper and then selected my layout which is this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #176.

My island indigo designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "sweet shoppe" collection and the daffodil delight flag is cut from Stampin-Up's "world spectacular" collection.

I used the MFT "dizzy doily" die cut in lucky limeade and added a Spellbinders circle cut in daffodil delight.

My sentiment is PaperTrey Inks "lock and key" set and I also used the matching key die. Punched a few hearts in island indigo to complete my card.

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time.....God bless.
