Pomegranate Valentini

Hi girls! It's Tuesday night and I'm scheduling my posts for tomorrow. I am sooo tired and ready for bed. And soooo thankful that I don't have to drive tomorrow. I do hope it's a pleasant drive for the little man. Since it's Wednesday, I have lots of cards to share with you today; normally it's 3 but I checked the Cuttlebug Challenge assignment (create a "love" card/project) for this week and saw that I could easily combine it with the Pink Papery Studios challenge (a sketch by our very own Valerie with bonus points for using the colors red, black and white).

Isn't it a great sketch? I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the hearts background (I just inserted my folded card into the folder and both the front and back of my card are embossed. Cool huh?) I also used the green machine to cut out the image and the scalloped mat using my Nestabilities. The image is one of the new Valentine digital images from Pink Papery Studios. It's only $2.00 and you'll get it instantly to your computer - talk about instant gratification!! You can find it plus all the other images HERE. I colored it with markers, ink and blender pen and a silver gel pen. I also used my Pixie Shimmer It to add sparkle to the 'tini part and also all along the red scalloped mat. It's really sparkly in real life! Three red gems and a pretty red bow finish it off.

Be sure to check out all the other PPS girls blogs today too! Lindsay is offering blog candy so definitely stop by and see her. We'd love to see what card you create with this sketch and or the colors of red, black and white. Load it up at PCP or SCS using the keyword: pinkpaperystudios so we can all check it out!!

Also be sure to head over to The Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see all the wonderful cards by the team over there! We are still so excited about the Luv Bug event. THANK YOU for making it such a fun weekend!! Boy, are there some awesome exciting things that are going to be happening over there in the coming months!! You won't want to miss it so head over and follow the blog or subscribe or add it to your reader!!

Have a Wonderful, Beautiful Wednesday!! I am so excited to go see my in-laws and spend some time up there. Saturday we have a baby shower for my SIL and that should be lots of fun too - you know how I LOVE to make baby cards!! Well, gotta type one more post and then go pack. I did not get other projects photographed to share so I will just see ya'll back here next week!!

**I'm so tired I JUST realized I was writing this to post on the PPS DT blog - ugh! Really glad I caught it before I shut down!
