I Heart You!

Can you believe that it is already February? Seems like we were all just taking a short breather to be with our families for Christmas, and here we are - coloring hearts!



Welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air. Today, I bring you Nina's beautiful image, "I Heart You".
It is Sue's week to present the challenge!
Sue wants to see us use this image in a Valentine gift tag, and include some stitching somewhere on it. Our stitching can be with real thread, or can be hand drawn.
You'll note that mine is definitely hand drawn (thanks Sue!)!
* * * * *


I filled an old Frappucino bottle with some Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles (mmmm.....), decorated it with some DP, Pearls, and Ribbon, and hung my tag from the bottle neck. I also made a coordinating gift card.







All coloring was done with Koh-I-Noor Pencils and loms. Sponging was done with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink (Antique Linen).
Be sure to hurry over to TMITA to pick up YOUR free image! Create something fun with it, enter it in the weekly challenge, and you could win the prize pictured there! When you are finished there, run over to Nina's store and check out her wonderful images!
Thank you all for stopping by! I hope to be back in a regular routine soon!
Other challenges I am entering this project in:
Our Creative Corner: Music
Have a wonderful week!

Oh, Patti, so gorgeous! Love this set and always the papers you pick are so perfect! I'm still struggling with the concept of what DP/CS to use. I know Kim thinks I'm a 'little bit' slow on getting things done, but seriously, it takes me hours to days to make up my mind!!! Must be my age, I didn't use to be that way! LOL!!!
I should be making more card(s) today with another day off, but I need to finish upholstering a chair for work, make cookies for treat day, grocery shop, blah, blah, blah! Have a great day! Sally
