Romance

Hello blog friends,

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and at Sugar Creek Hollow this week we are setting the scene for your projects made for this special day. The theme is Romantic Love and you can enter any paper project as long as it is made in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired style. I decided to make my card in shades of cream with a hint of turquoise and gold. The French couple image is from The Graphics Fairy. The Die’sire tag die and KaiserCraft sentiment stamp are new additions to my ever-growing craft supplies. I always wonder if I will ever overcome this craft addiction!  

Challenges:

    Here from Sugar Creek Hollow’s challenge–stunning card with beautiful inside too! Had to come here to comment because my blog background uses that image–I downloaded it from a free blog background site. So happy to learn it is a GF image. Will check it out.

    Oh my dear friend, this is a beautiful and creative addiction I hope you will never overcome. Would be a tragedy not to share your fantastic and amazing talent for art with the world. Where do you find such gorgeous embellishments? I never see anything like what you use in the stores here. This is so gorgeous with so many awesome details. Thanks for sharing with us! “Hugs”
