With Love on Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day ! 

I have a card today featuring designs from Chocolate Baroque.   And for all of you 'Chocolate Baroque Lovers' you may spy a new design here !  To read about this new design & more, please keep checking the What's New page for information :)    But shhhhhhhhhhhh I didn't tell you anything right? wink wink

I just learned about a new Challenge site Sincerely Yours Creations as one of my very talented teamies over at CB, Judith, has joined their DT.  The current theme starting today is "Valentine/Love" so I'm joining in with this design.  


I started with a piece of 6x6 designer paper from My Mind's Eye that's been in my stash for a while.  The background design actually mimics the design on the beautiful Poppy Baroque Heart which I didn't realize until I started working with it.  I used my Prismas for all the colouring & added some lime stickles and clear glitter.  With Love is from the Loving Sentiments set. 



UPDATE at 11:30 AM Ontario Time:  The new clear stamps are now available on line at Chocolate Baroque.  I used a design at the top of my card from the gorgeous Decorative Edge stamp set:)  We don't have to keep it a secret any longer :)
 
Thank you for all your visits and kind words, they are appreciated.  Without all of you, blogging would not be so enjoyable.

Enjoy this special day with Love !
Shirley

Hi Shirley, I love this card design, the colours are gorgeous. That vintage cream background shows the deep red and black and black off so well. Thank you so much for joining our very first Sincerely Yours challenge, Judith xx

This is gorgeous Shirley, it was my favorite of the new Heart stamps when they were first launched. I expect I shall have to buy the others at some stage. I love all the new border stamps and have ordered them already, except the floral one has sold out, so I've had to go on the waiting list.

Hope your weather is a little kinder this week, it's quite a warm day today at 9c and sunny here.

There is so much co-ordination in this it's just a delight especially with the way the paper design decided to work its own way into your artwork! That border is lovely - I just sighed for one needs very deep pockets....plus lots of space. Your charm adds beautifully to this & I love the way you coloured the heart itself so softly to match the paper's colour but with enough difference to catch the eye. I love your colouring of the border to match the Poppy Baroque Heart.
Hope you've had a lovely day.

Michelle Webb said...

Oh Shirley I have 3 crafty assistants like yours! They don't assist very well because they keep running away with my paintbrushes & ribbons and knocking pencils off my crafty desk! This card is awesome by the way and I love your blog. I'm certainly going to be your newest follower. Love your style and all your crafty makes. Michelle x
