Hoo loves you?


I love Valentine's Day, digi stamps, and Basic Grey Papers. The combination of the three together just puts me in stamping heaven! I had a little bit of time last week so I visited the Basic Grey Challenge blog and found the cutest digi stamps that were to be used in their challenge and went to town. I got the card done, but was having so many problems with losing my internet signal and connection that I missed joining the challenge. I asked Kim, who designed the digi images for the challenge if she minded if I still posted the card using her images and she said sure! She was so great about it and I think all of you should visit her blog. She's got fabulous cards and is going to be doing some of her own digi stamps for sale! I'll be there to help start her on her adventure!

When I saw this beauty, I knew I wanted to use my Basic Grey Bittersweet paper and the sketch is from i{heart}2stamp. I loved this sketch and plan on using it tons more! I love the sweetness of her and the dreamy look she has on her face. I remember sitting with Tiffany and Nichole while they were doing the valentines and making sure that no one in the class was missed. The far off distant look in her eyes reminds me of Tiffany trying to decide which boy would get the best valentine out of her pack. And then there was the year that Nichole decided not to give any of the boys in her class a valentine at all. That was until her dad conviced her that she needed to be nice to the boys because they always brought the best chocolate! She gave them valentines, but reluctantly! Always the rebel, my baby girl was!

I hope you enjoy her because she was such fun making!

Card Ingredients: Valentine digi stamps from Kim, Sentiment by H&M Stamps, Bittersweet paper by Basic Grey, Ribbon by Basic Grey, nestabilities, copics, spica glitter pen, Distressed Inks, beads from Joann's
