Hey, Loverboy!

I love romance and all the things that go into it. To me there's nothing sassier than hanging out on a big, comfy bed, looking fabulous and yakking away to your loved ones. Lillette is such a diva sitting there, all curled up and I can only imagine the conversation she's having! I do remember those days and they were good!

Susana from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design is having a promotion over at our PCP group featuring a signed Rubber Romance card from Robyn, the Owner/Illustrator of Rubber Romance! Make sure you stop over and get in on the fun! Also, Susana is going to be bringing in a new Illustrator and stamp line next week! These stamps are so much fun and so fresh. I can't wait to start giving you a sneak peek at them bit by bit! Don't miss out on this excitement! You could win a $25 gift card to store & a handcolored image too. The winner will be picked randomly.

Lillette is from Rubber Romance and you can pick her and most of the embellishments on this card from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I paper-pieced the comforter and pillows with double sided mulberry paper from The Paper Company and colored her with copics. Her brass bed was colored with my spica glitter pen and the babules add a bit of class to her sass.

I loved her since I saw her and thought she was perfect for Rubber Romance and Valentine's Day! I hope you all put a little sass in your life!

We'll Always Have Paris

I've always wanted to see Paris. I'd love to sit along one of the cafes and sip really strong coffee, wear a beret and watch all the people walk by. I've always loved the flavor of fashion, cosmetics and glamour. Since I have no idea as to when I might make it there, I visit every chance a I get in my mind.

Our Design Team challenge for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store blog this week was to create a Valentine's Day card without using a card specifically designed for Valentine's Day. I reached for my Weekend Poster from Rubber Romance. She has such an elegant, beautiful line to her. She's all dressed up and I think it's to go and celebrate with her someone special. The paper is from The Sweet Collection from DCWV and she's colored with copics and I used Bella Baubles in Oyster and a Blue Moon Charm on her to add that last finishing touch to her. I adore her!

Stop by Follow Your Heart, the store's blog, and take a look at what my talented Design Team Sisters came up with. You'll not be disappointed! Also make sure you stop by PCP and take advantage of some great Web candy that Susana is offering. Who can pass up the opportunity to win a great Rubber Romance stamp signed by Robyn, the Owner/Illustrator? Good luck!

Here's My Heart

This next Roses on Paper Design Team was created by our incredibly talented Peta, and what fun it was! It was masking with a Valentine's theme and she wanted us to all use a rose somehow on our card, because it's Summer's favorite flower.

I love Melinda Hugging a Heart by Whiff of Joy and couldn't resist using her for this challenge. I masked her and stamp one single rose from a set from Inkadinkado after I sponged the background. Below is a close-up of the flower masking. I love the soft effect it gave my card.

You can pick up most of what was used for this card from Summer. Everyone can use a Valentine's Day card so take a stop by our Roses on Paper Design Team Blog and see all the other great cards created by my extremely tallented Design Team Sisters.

Card Ingredients: Melinda Hugging a Heart, Prima flowers, Dew Drops, Blue Moon Charms, Ice Stickles, ribbon, Bittersweet paper from Basic Grey white opaque pen, clear glaze Jelly Roller, SU ticket corner punch.

Hey Cupcake and WOJ Challenge

Cupcakes, Tilda, pink, greens, browns, glimmer, glitz, flowers. It just doesn't get much better than this! I love this Tilda and even though this is from one of the Winter Collections, she's perfect for Valentine's Day sitting on this big, adorable cupcake! Who can resist a big, chocolate cupcake with pink frosting? I can just taste the sweet, creamy frosting and that soft, melt in your mouth chocolate cake. And Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without the candy hearts instead of sprikles! You can get everything for this card from Summer at Roses on Paper. She's got a great selection of Tilda's and such fun supplies and embellishments!

Another of my favorite things is reading and Melinda from Whiff of Joy. What's the perfect story for the big V Day? Love Story, of course! I'm going to date myself, but I remember getting this book when it first came out from my book club and I've lost count of how many times I've read it and don't ask about how many times I've seen the movie. It's criminal! The Whiff of Joy Challenge blog thsi week is to create a valentine and I went with the most romantic story I could think of!

While you're looking around, stop over at PCP at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and take a look at her great giveaway. She's got a $25 gift certificate for her sore and some fun, sassy Rubber Romance stamps signed by the owner and illustrator, Robyn Ireland. You have to stop by and check out all the details! I hope you enjoy both of these. I've had such fun working on them.
