~a hundred hearts~

Hello Blogger Friends and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's a cold but sunny day here in Pittsburgh. But, no new snow so that's good for me. I pick up my youngest grandson from school on Tuesdays and its a 45 minute drive to their house.
Today also was Pre-School day. It was a good day with the kids. We made a couple of Valentine's projects. One of them has their picture on it. They couldn't wait to show their parents what they did. This class loves art projects and are always anxious to take them home.
Sometimes we hang them up in the classroom or out in the hall. Which is what we did with the photo project. They will be excited to take them next week after our Valentine party.
Next Tuesday we are going to make Valentine boxes using cereal boxes. The lead teacher came up with this idea and I am anxious to see how they turn out. I am going to die-cut some large hearts and use my newly purchased alphabet dies to add their name.
Hopefully, I will remember to take some photos after they decorate them to post here. Now onto my card for today.
I am in Valentine mode here at home as well as at school.  This one I made using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers #515 color challenge. Karen was the hostess and she chose real red, crumb cake and early espresso as her color palette.
real red, crumb cake, early espresso

These colors said Valentine's Day to me so I went with that theme for my card.

I saw
this card on Pinterest and used it as my inspiration.Changed it up to make it in my style.  I changed colors, used a flourish die for the tree branches, added designer paper and stamped a valentine sentiment directly on my designer paper. 

I used the Stampin-Up owl builder punch and created 2 little love owls. I added some hands to the owls with the thought that the female is throwing hearts to the male owl who catches one (lol)!!

I cut a leaf flourish in early espresso for the owls to stand on. I decided to use designer paper for my background. It's from the Stampin-Up "welcome neighbor" collection.

Punched a few hearts and added my sentiment to complete this card.
 It's time for me to end this post as well. I have to get out the door to pick Ethan up at school. So until next time......God bless.
