Sending You Love

 I'm working on Valentine's day cards already and here's another one I've just completed. I used a Gerda Steiner image and fussy cut him after coloring with Copics and adding Glossy Accents to his little heart. The "Love" die is from My Creative Time and this is my first outing with this die. I cut it 3 times and layered it, adding Glossy Accents for some sparkle. The Mosaic heart background was done with a Simon Says Stamp stencil and the sentiments on black are from Lawn Fawn. I added a tiny sparkly heart sticker just for fun.
I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Critter Crazy Challenge Blog #58 - must feature a critter

NBUS Challenge #34 - Never Before Used Schtuff (love die)

I hope everyone had a nice holiday season and here's to more crafting in the coming year!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great week ahead. 

We're bracing for a few inches of snow coming in tomorrow evening! Winter's arrived! It was 60 degrees 3 days ago and the next day the temps dropped to the 20s overnight! Strange weather!

Stay warm and stay safe!

Fabulous card, impressed with your fussy cutting... that tail is fiddly and at risk of being amputated so well done. Loving the stacked bold sentiment and the subtle heart, nicely done.

Snow... how wonderful, its a bit frosty here and I would definitely enjoy some of the white stuff, would love to see a photo if you get some... snow makes me happy lol x

This is so cute! The stenciled heart made a great background and the sweet image you chose is perfect for sending love. We have the same weather here and it is so confusing to know what to put on every day when you get dressed.

This card is oh so cute, Carol! Just love the mosaic heart shaped background that was sponged on and that adorable little mouse! Your popped up LOVE sentiment is the perfect embellishment! I love everything about it! You are farther along than me with creating Valentines cards! I started my 2022 calendars and have a card order waiting on me but still nursing my hands. I hope soon to get back to it! Thanks for sharing your adorable card! Happy New Year, my friend!
