With Love 73

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, December 30, 2010 @ 12:37 AM | , ,

Hi there! Hope all is going well with all of you. I'm here today to share a card I made using some of my favorite products. I inked up both a fancy border and sentiment image from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases then using a S4-235 Fancy Tag die template to cut/emboss the images creating a Fancy tag :)
For color inspiration, I referred to this week's CR84FN8 graphic :
For the bow, I used Raspberry Truffle Vintage style scrunched seam binding from Kimberly Tracy. Kimberly makes and sells some gorgeous ribbon that can be found at My Craft Spot.
Before you know it, Valentine's Day will soon be here! So I gathered up a few things to share with one lucky randomly chosen person via Random.org that may help you get a jump start on making those Valentine's for the one(s) you love! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by 6:00 pm Eastern US time - Saturday, January 1st and tell me who YOU will be making sweet Valentine's for? :) I will post the winning's recipients name on my post for Sunday, January 2nd.
That's all for now - headed to work for the day. Can't wait to read who you all share Valentine's with! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® S4-235 Fancy Tags, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Lovely card Mona!
Well Hello there gorgeous stamps and papers! This year I have decided to make Valentines for the elderly... I was watching this program the other day on TV, showing so many elder people just left in a home... no one comes to visit them and no one calls them... they kept telling their stories and crying... So I have decided I will send them loads of cards... and I have already started on the love cards since quite a few days! Just something to make them feel loved...
Thanks for the opportunity Mona!

Hi Mona! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Sue Lelli said...

LOVE this card and all things Valentine. I make cards for the residents of a nursing home west of Houston, TX. I get a list of the resident's names and make approx 70 different cards to deliver to the home with my neighbor. We bring them sandwiches from Subway and her children and then pass out the cards one by one. This will be the third year and they look forward to our Valentine's visit. So many of them are all alone with no visitors so when they receive a card with their name on it, they are so excited!

Stella said...

The sentiment tag and the papers are perfectly paired up. This card is a beauty and I love it! I know it sounds boring... I always write the same comment:)

Lorraine said...

Your card is gorgeous! I love that color combo and all the detailing you did. Hmm, Valentine's day - probably tags to go with treats for family!

Meredith said...

No need to add me to your draw - but I love your card! I was up at the dollar store today, and Xmas has been shoved right aside for Valentine's Day - I am excited to get things going for my beautiful girls! My wedding anniversary is only a few days before V-Day, so hubby and I celebrate the two together - and I am planning to draw inspiration from your coupon book to make a gift for him! :)

Oh, how sweet are you, giving away some sweet Valentine's stuff!?!
I will be making valentine's for my momma and my students - although, I'm not sure how complicated the ones for my students will be. :) With 21 kiddos, it's hard to make them complicated!

Great card, Mona. I never think to use grey. I am not sure I even have any grey cs. Hmmm. For Valentine's Day I will send a card to my mom and make one for my DH and if there is time, I have an aunt and a special friend who will also get one. I try to make something little and sweet (treat box) for my staff, too, if time allows.

what a generous gift. Thanks for the chance to win............ I will be making valentines for my grandchildren and no doubt there will be at least a couple that will need treats for thier school class and of course my one daughter is a pharmacy tech and has to take all her co-workers some kind of a treat in. If there is time I might make a thank you valentine for my neighbors, they are very helpful helping me clear snow, etc.
