Just Some Lines: Hearts & Love (Final Week)

Hello friends!  Today's card is for our final week of our Hearts & Love challenge at Just Some Lines:

 The image I used is a retired one called Growing Heart in a Pot, I printed it on the DP and colored with markers and Stickles.  I used the sentiment from the coordinating DP to pop up off the page, and added a ribbon tag & metal heart charm.  Peace.

Happy Valentine's Day - Queen Bean

Hello friends - yup, 2 days in a row here - I'm on a roll.  LOL  How sad is that?  I can't believe how badly I've been at keeping my blog up these last couple of months.  It's really no wonder artists are always called "struggling" - I don't know about you guys, but when my life and mind feel cluttered and disorganized, I just can't get my creative juices flowing!  So when I am feeling the mood to craft lately, I jump at it!  LOL  I had an order for Valentine's cards, which gave me the perfect chance to use this sweet stamp below.... this card is for the following challenges:

I used Queen Bean from The Greeting Farm, stamped in red ink directly on DP from My Mind's Eye.  I colored some of the hearts with Red Stickles and left the rest uncolored.  Added some red rick rack, a red ribbon tag, and a little red heart gem.  Peace.
