~keep me in your heart~

Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you are staying warm in your area of the world.
We are in the middle of a deep freeze here in Pittsburgh. We have had a lot of cold but not too much snow. Nothing like they are getting in New England. But on a good note the days are getting longer.
Today was my day at pre-school and we had our valentine party. The kids were so excited. On Tuesday we made their valentine boxes. We used cereal boxes and covered them with white paper and then decorated them.
I die-cut large hearts and added the kids names in the center. I did that with alphabet dies. We had some foam and felt shapes and let the kids decorate them however they wanted. I was impressed with the creativity of 3 year olds.
I will get the photos of the boxes that the other assistant took and post them here.
Now onto my card for today. I still have Valentine cards to post. This one is my sample for CC516 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy was the hostess and she chose a feminine palette with pink pirouette, melon mambo and whisper white.
pink pirouette, white and melon mambo
With these colors, I immediately thought Valentine. I started my card with the sketch and worked from there. I used last week's Mojo383 layout.

 The card base is pink pirouette. On the next layer, I used designer paper from Stampin-Up's "gingham garden collection". My next panel is embossed with the Darice `layered heart" folder. The sentiment panel is Verve's "hundred hearts" set. I just love this saying from Winnie the Pooh.

To complete my card and the sketch requirements, I die cut some flags in melon mambo and added a die cut heart from Cheery Lynn Designs in pink pirouette. The hearts on the sentiment panel are die cut with an MFT die.
Well, that's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
