We all wait for the January thaw and it has arrived. I think that we have less to thaw this year than most years. However, that does depend on exactly where you live. For my part of Michigan--it will be nice for the snow to melt into the ground and for the frigid temps to rise above freezing. In a month it will be Valentines Day and I do have a card swap due Monday that I am actually ready for!! We chose Valentine's Day as the theme. The card that I made--I scraplifted the idea from The Inking spot of Crains Creations and worked with what I had on hand. I made my scallop circle larger than I think it should have been, but went with it anyway. The lighter pink cardstock is from Paper Company and is Rosebud Metallic, the darker pink is from JA's. I use the Cricut to cut the scallop circle and the circle. The heart was cut with the sizzix embosslit Double Heart. The sample use small brads where I used Liquid Pearls. I don't know where I bought the ribbon from or the stamp. I smudged the white circle with Close to Cocoa (SU) and stamped the words with Chocolate Kiss, also SU. Once I assembled the circles, the heart and let the liquid pearls dry and stamped the sentiment I sprayed it with Garnet Ritzy Ditzy Glitz from Paper Gardens. The patterned paper is one of my favorite patterns from Basic Grey--Bittersweet Vanilla/Fudge. If you want to see the original it is posted on Crain Creations Blog.
