Valentine's and some homemade embellishments....

Hello Friends,
It is week #204 at The Shabby Tea Room and we have a lovely inspiration photo to share with you:

This week Heidi is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'All That Glitters in Love' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration!   Heidi asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo and INCLUDE PINK/RED/BURGUNDY, FLOWERS, HEARTS & GLITTER!

I created 3 cards using this weeks inspiration.  Here are some individual photos:

 I am on a "heart-shaped" card kick at the moment as I try to get some Valentine and Birthday cards ready for some of my dear friends and family.  I love this sentiment from Paper Sweeties.  It is part of the "Sending Sweet Thoughts" stamp set! 

 Here is Paper Sweeties "Emma" asking you all to "Have a Sweet Day"!  I noticed from taking the picture that my sweet Emma is leaning a wee bit to the left so I fixed her and the sentiment!  Pictures often tell a better story than my eyes these days!  LOL!  I hope to find some time to insert a replacement photo before this post goes live!  Otherwise  - please forgive me if you are tipping out of your chair!     
And how about some little clothespin embellishments to share with a card-making friend?.  I used a sweet little flower stamp and die from the "Sending Sweet Thoughts" stamp/die bundle and some baby clothespins I got at Michael's with a 40% off coupon!  I die cut the flowers and then colored them with copic markers. I then used a black marker to add some sweet little dots in the flower centers for contrast.  I kept trying to get them to line up straight on the tag but glue dots have a mind of their own.  I think next time I will put them on little squares of foam so I can move them around!  Live and learn! :)

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful:  - Paper Sweeties!:
