Sweet Valentine

Today's card is a Valentine card using one of my favorite Stampendous stamps Tiers of Treats, I know I've said this before about this stamped image but it really is so fun to color. I love to color and I really love to color fun images like this where you can do shading, different color combinations, liquid applique for fluffy frosting, Crystal effects (like I did this time) on the cherries and strawberries to make them look shiny, all of these things make the image pop and give added dimension and fun detail! (see close up shot for more detail)

Supplies: Tiers of Treats, Happy Valentines Day - Stampendous, BoBunny designer paper, Ribbon, Nesties, Baubles, Pop dots, Spica glitter pen, Copics: R14, R27, R29, YG09, YG07,E35, E57, E47, R81, R83, R85, R59, Y21, YR23, YG00, YG03, B000, B00.

Thank you for the well wishes for my son he's feeling a little bit better and is now eating at least but still has a fever and now cough and cold symptoms. I was really wishing no one else would get sick but this morning my daughter woke up with a runny nose and cough, oh boy.

Hey Don't forget the Promo Susana has going on right now!!!If you purchase any 4 regular Lockhart Stamps (any combination) from either the New or Previous collection (NOT including Itty Bittys) you will get to select a free IB from the selection that she has available at the time at her store.

I really like all the shading on the treats. The patterned paper in the background is too cute.

So sweet - I can almost taste them:-) We hope that we have had our share of this virus now - but it took a very long time until it went away (well - almost gone now). Isac and I have been coughing since early Dec. So hang in there - it will get better, but prepare yourself - it will take time. Sounds like this virus is going everywhere at the moment. Kram - Anki

I'll be sending "good health vibes" to you guys! It's so hard when the kids are sick. And even harder if it's mom, so take care of yourself!
