 Hello again and welcome! I have more exciting news!! I have now joined the TRY STAMPIN ON TUESDAY CHALLENGE BLOG Design Team! I am vey excited to come along side of a very talented team of ladies! So my first challenge with TSOT is challenge #593. It's also TSOT'S 12th Anniversary so this challenge has a little surprise, see details below...

Optional Theme: Valentines Day

It's TSOT's 12th anniversary, so we thought we would celebrate by giving away some small gifts to two of our wonderful followers chosen by random draw. Please share your creativity for chances to win in Challenge #593 before it closes on February 15th! 

We will be partnering with Double Trouble for this challenge.


And here is my card...

I kept with the sketch pretty much and added the optional Valentine theme. I wanted to make it a little fun and whimsical so I started with the heart DSP and lacey edged 2 tone rectangle. I glued strips of paper side by side and cut a heart out and topped that with a love die by Hero Arts. I found an old Dynmo label maker recently and thought it added a little fun to the sentiment which I adhered with a few staples...

Thank you so much for visiting today! Please stop by the other DT ladies blogs and check out what they did for this challenge and hope to see you in the gallery so you might have a chance to win one of 2 prizes for TSOT'S 12th Anniversary!! Stay crafty...
