Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

So get out your paper, scissors, glue  and . . . 

 Are you ready???

I didn't hear you . . . 

Are you ready???

Okay, it's challenge time!!!

Theme:  Valentine/Love
Stash: Flower 

And you have 1 week to play (till Feb. 17th)

This week our sponsor is:

For this week's challenge, I choose an adorable digi image called "Cupid Bear" from StampArt by Kathryne. I got my inspiration from a sketch I saw on CAS(E) the Stketch and one of the cards from one of their DT members's cards (Chrissy Larson)...but instead of a card, I made a tag. Here's how it turned out:

"Persuasion" from A Gift of Love paper collection by Bo Bunny (blue paper)
"Blush Dots" from A Gift of Love paper collection by Bo Bunny (dark pink paper)
Vintage Valentines paper collection by Fancy Pants (light pink paper)
Vintage Silver Lustre from The Paper Temptress
"Crystal" Stickles
Helmar Scrap Dots 3D Adhesive
misc. fiber flower - cut apart
E21, E25 (Bear)
Y17 (halo & bow)
R35 (hearts & arrow)
R30 (diaper)

Since I didn't have any flower that would look right with my design, I decided to cut apart a fiber flower and use it as ribbon at the top of my tag. :)  And to get my big clouds at the bottom, I took the cloud that came with "Cupid Bear" and enlarged it . . . then printed it on heavy cardstock and cut it out. Then used it as a template.  All-in-all, I think it turned out pretty cute . . . and even though I got inspiration from someone else, I think it still looks different.  Same idea about the clouds but different.

So lets's get crafting!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
