A Valentine mini...FTTC156 52

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 13, 2012 @ 11:00 PM | , ,

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you are all having a great day with your loved one (s) ~ anything fun planned? Scott and I will be enjoying each others company tonight while dining at one of our favorite restaurants ;) 

Since it is Tuesday, that means it is time for an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
This week, Beate is our lovely hostess and she is challenging us to create a Valentine's Day card/project while incorporating the color RED. Keeping this theme in mind, I made a mini Valentine's Day book, (referring to Tim Holtz's tutorial), for my DH using a variety of wonderful Flourishes stamps. Lots of photos, so I hope you sit back and enjoy :) 

The cover features a beautiful blossoming heart is from Hearts and Flowers that was sponged using Memento Rhubard Stalk ink and a sweet Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die with a fun sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags:
Pages 1 & 2: The sentiments are from Love Sweet Love and the beautiful rose blossom heart is from Hearts and Flowers that was sponged using Ranger Distress Spun Sugar ink:
Page 3: The sentiment is from From the Heart and the pretty daisy blooming heart is from Hearts and Flowers. Page 4: The sentiment is from  Love Sweet Love:
Page 5: The sentiment is from  From the Heart. Page 6: The beautiful blossoming heart and sentiment are from Hearts and Flowers. The flowery heart was sponged using Ranger Distress Spun Sugar ink:
Page 7: The sentiment is from Hearts and Flowers. Page 8: The beautiful rose blossom heart is from Hearts and Flowers and the sweet tag was cut using a die from the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die set and the sentiment is from Tiny Flowers and Tags:
Page 9 & 10: The sentiments are from Angelic Love and the pretty daisy blooming heart is from Hearts and Flowers:
Page 11: The sentiment is from From the Heart and the pretty daisy blooming heart is from Hearts and Flowers. Page 12: The sentiment is from Hearts and Flowers:
Tucked in the three pockets are tags featuring wonderful words from various sets. From top to bottom,
the sentiments are from the following stamp sets: Angelic LoveHearts and Flowers and Angelic Love:

Shown below is the beautiful bouquet of roses that Scott had delivered for me for Valentine's Day. I sure wish I could share their sweet fragrance with all of you :)
