Valentine's Day - Be Still My Heart

Simon Says Stamp and Show Song Title Entry
"Love Ain't Love Till you Give it Away"

This is my entry based on the song title by Reba McEntire.  For this card I used the cutout frame from the La Rue heart to sponge in Real Red ink.  Then I laid the cutout heart over the top.  I used a digi from  Digital Pencil Too and cut out the words separately.  I really like this card and that's unusual for me because I don't normally like things I design.  But I so love the couple and the heart.  Hope you enjoy.  Getting ready for early Valentine since I really skipped over the last holiday so badly.

Romantique by Graphic 45

I can't belive it's been so long that I haven't created a card.  Where does the time go I ask you?  It took me like forever to do this one and there really wasn't that much to do.  I used Graphic 45 paper "Romantique" and I cut out the roses and border from my Crafty Secrets CD #2.  I adore the La Rue heart from Memory Box.  I just had to have that one the minute I laid eyes on it.  You can't tell from this picture but the heart itself is not lying flat - it's humped up a little bit and the roses are raised up also.  I do like the colors.  Added a little bit of bling with some beige pearls and a tiny verse.  I love romance. Everyone say ahhhhhhh.

  4. Brenda, if Graphic 45 were the only designer paper in the world I could design with it everyday! That's how much I love it. You've created a lovely Valentine card - a perfect gift of your affection to your favorite valentine! And with two sweet grandchildren I'm sure you've got more goodies to create *smiling*

    Thank you for your very sweet comment as well. I didn't see an email otherwise I would have emailed a thank you rather than place it here. I hope you won't mind. I too need to post more frequently. I'm so glad you didn't give up on me.
