Love Is In The Air...

Good morning crafty friends!

We have a new challenge for you over on the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  With Valentine's Day not far away, our theme, "Love Is In The Air", makes for a great opportunity to create a project for that special someone or just for fun. 

Our sponsor, Cas-ual Friday Stamps, is offering a fabulous $20 prize for their store.


Thank you, Cas-ual Friday!

Create a project following the challenge theme, "Love Is In The Air" and link it to the Cut It Up Challenge Blog post by noon EST, February 19th.  You could be a "Top Cut" winner, receive a badge to display in your blog and the opportunity to be a future guest designer for Cut It Up.  You can find the challenge guidelines in the Cut It Up Blog.

I'm sharing my inspiration...

"Your Love Lifts Me Up!"

This sweet hot air balloon Valentine has many layers created with die cuts and foam tape.  The Moroccan Card Front acts as a window over these new floral patterned papers.  The hot air balloon is matted with two ovals and and adhered to the card base with foam tape for dimension.  A few gems to embellish the balloon are the final details.

From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock

Bo Bunny, Count The Ways Collection

This is gorgeous, Vicki. I had wanted to play along in that challenge and just didn't end up finding the time. That's always a bummer, isn't it? I sure hope you will link up with us at Word Art Wednesday this week. Our sponsor is Seth Apter Designs and TWO people will win a $25 gift certificate to his amazing store. I'm having fun browsing through your sweet blog.
