Hi all! And a Very Happy Sunday to you! Today I'm back with my latest creation inspired by the Fabulous Ladies of Color Throwdown and there latest Color Challenge #173! Yay! 8-) And as you all may remember from my previous post, I have had Valentine's on the brain these days lol, and just new these colors would be perfect for some Valentine inspired creations! 8-)
These came together pretty quickly since there was no stamping or coloring involved lol, so I made up a bunch.  I don't know about you, but I can spend hours coloring an image up 'cause I'm so fussy about it.. lol  ;-) So it was kind of nice to be able to take a break from my Beloved trusty Copics for a bit. 8-)  All my dp's are from Echo Parks Darling nee Yours Truly collection. My mats, letters & Sweet little hearts are made up with black and red CS from my stash and the help of my Cricut, the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and my Hearts Nesties set. To finish them all up I popped up my Cute little hearts with a bit of foam tape, added Fun MFT die-namic scalloped borders, a bit of ribbon from my stash and topped them all off with a few Sweet pearls for good measure! 8-)

Here's a few pics of the individual cards...

And here are the Color Throwdown's Fab colors for this week! See, just perfect for Valentines! 8-)

Hope you have all a Wonderful Sunday & thanks so much for Stopping by!

  2. They are so pretty. I love the colors of Valentines. I still need to take a trip to Archivers and see if they have any new papers...that I HAVE to have. ;)

  3. Wow! These are gorgeous Shannon! What fab designs! I love the papers and those delish letters - stunning! That's the wonderful thing about cardmaking - as soon as Christmas is over you can look forward to Valentines Day, then Easter …. etc.
