When I'm with you...


This is my favorite sentiment for my husband's Valentine's Card. I'm posting it late because it is my creation for Pattie's Creations Challenge 86 that starts today!
While I was making this card, Frank walked behind me at my crafting table and saw it. When I read the sentiment to him he said "That fits you and me perfectly". I'm always doing goofy things to make him laugh, and every time I try to outdo my last improv antic.
So, our theme today is 'Spots or Dots'. The Dalmatians have Spots, and my background paper has Dots, plus the sentiment has a line of Dots!

Card Details
- Base is white card stock
- Red digital DP with embossed hearts from Crafty Ann's
- Oval DP digitally created with lines and dots
- 'Dalmatians' image from Pattie's Creations digitally colored by me
- Digital sentiment from Sentimental Sundays
- Gold glitter on the dog tags

CDAC Valentine's Creation


This is my 'Valentine' creation for CDAC! The Heart Wreath image is from Priscilla of priscillastyles store, who is also the owner of Crafters' Digital Art Center.
It's been pretty quiet in CDAC, but let's hope that things start moving and people start participating in whatever activities are on the horizon! There are over 8,000 members, but only a handful are actively engaging in chatter, etc.

Card Details
- Base is a white card stock
- Next layer is a sage colored DP with texture
- Red Heart paper is digital from Crafty Ann's
- Dotted DP is digital from Pixel Scrapper
- Heart Wreath image from Priscillastyles digitally colored by me
- Digital enhancements: Outer glow around Dotted paper and Image for effect
- A green gingham ribbon at the bottom
- Two red glitter embellies added to ribbon edges (I messed up the ribbon when attaching it to my card, so that's why I added the glitter embellies) 
- Iridescent green bow applied to center of ribbon
- Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps die cut and edge distressed with ink

Fin-Tastic Day!

Card #1
Card #2

At first glance you would think that these 2 cards are identical. There is 1 minor difference. They have different designer papers at the bottom layer.
Over at Pattie's Creations Challenge 85, our theme is 'Use the color RED in your image'. The only place you'll see RED, is in the tails of the fish.

Card Details
- Base is white card stock
-  Plaid DP on Card 1, and Black/White DP on Card 2
- Green DP 'Cattail Pond Paper' from Doodle Pantry
- Image 'Fish Kissing' from Pattie's Creations digitally colored by me
