Valentine's Day here I come!

Happy Friday Everyone,

Wow, it seems like many on the east coast are getting hit big time with snow. Right now we are rain but snow is suppose to be here later tonight. But nothing like what is to hit the New England states. Everyone please stay safe.

Well to perk up all that white stuff The Outlawz Copic/ProMarker challenge is seeing red. Red for Valentines. Yes, that is the theme this week Valentines. We can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

My card today is using an image that Artist Krista Smith offered as a freebie from her Saturated Canary shop the other day. And what a cutie it is. 



She was really fun to color with my Copics. I used some of my favorite colors of reds on this card. I love what Krista does with hair on her images. I love adding texture to the hair. So fun. Her and Mayzy are two of my favs when it comes to images because of that. 
I have a lot happening on this card but it's all fun.


My papers are from those Martha Stewart Valentines papers I got last year. I love them. Now because they are not a 6x6 pad I ended up using a pink card base and stamped tiny hearts all over it. It's kinda of hard to see but they are there. Of course I had to use that beautiful red glitter paper.   I am all about anything red. Gee do you think Red is my fav? :-)


I love the fun felt heart ribbon I found at Target a couple of weeks ago. I added a little crystal stickles to her heart pony tail holders and around the ruffles of the hearts. Glossy Accents were also added to the heart centers. The LOVE glitter is a 3-d sticker from the local Dollar Tree. 
I used my Stampin up punches and stamps that go with it for the verse. I was very happy with the outcome of this card. I hope you like it too.
Stop over to The Outlawz today and check out my fab DT mates cards they are so cute. And Carla will be offering to one lucky winner a $15 Mo's Digital Pencil certificate.
So what are you waiting for?


I am entering this into the following challenges.
