Lovestruck HP Challenge

Cupid's come prepared to join in this week's LOVE challenge over at Humble Pie. The challenge is to use pink, red, white and lots of hearts. BTW we have some amazing news too ~ the ultra talented Bonnie Sharp , aka The Lucky Clucker, is joining us as a Guest Designer for the next 4 weeks ~ woohoo! Lookie here for a peek at the arrows of LOVE from the DT.


All materials for my card were purchased from Phebe at the Town Scrapper. The MME paper 'Quite Smitten' is gorgeous and the die cuts included in the package are really fun to play with. I've been hoarding these red heart brads and the half-back pearls ~ does anyone else do that ~ LOL! Actually, I didn't need to hoard them because Phebe has these in stock and they are soooo perfect for Valentines. So if you're interested in the Magnolia Cupid stamp or any other crafting materials, contact Phebe at or by phone at 519-882-0623. PLUS PLUS PLUS she's got an awesome sale going on right now until February 14th ~ buy 1 item and get the 2nd of equal or lesser value for 50% off and she ships internationally.

Here's a close-up of the card. Image stamped on Beckett Expression CS with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics (E000, E00, E01, E25, E49, E53, E59, R20, R22, R24, R29, R81, R83, R85, W0, W2, W3, W5, W7, Copic Multiliner & lots of the Blender Pen). I also used the Inkessentials opaque pen (also from the Town Scrapper) for additional highlights on the hearts. You'll see there's some bleeding in spots and at first I was really upset but then I thought it gives the image that extra something something personal touch so I'm living with it (at least that's what I keep telling myself) ~ LOL!


So what are you waiting for? Come join our LOVE challenge this week over at Humble Pie and you'll get a head start on those Valentine's cards PLUS one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to win a Humble Pie Sweetheart stamp.

Have a great weekend,
