Simply Crafts Challenge for February

Hi and welcome to another Simply Crafts Challenge. It is the first Wednesday of the month so my crafting bestie Pam and I do a cut challenge and now you can join in the fun too. Just join us HERE at the Simply Crafts Challenge Blog for more details.

This month Pam chose the cut and it is the tree from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge. I decided to make a shaped card for my sweet Valentine.

I changed the tree just a little. I added hearts instead of using the leaves that come with the cut. I gave the tree a woodgrain texture with a background stamp by Market Street Stamps called Woodgrain. The beautiful 'Be Mine' sentiment is from Emma's new set called Teeny Tag Greetings. I LOVE this darling set. The hearts have glossy accents on them to give some extra dimension and the edges were all inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

You will DEFINITELY need to see what Pam made! I'm totally in LOVE with the darling little scene she made. It is SO clever and ADORABLE. Click HERE to go to her blog.

And yes, there is a prize. Some Peachy Keen Stamps! In fact the exact set you see below:
Aren't these the cutest?! I absolutely LOVE these faces!!!! So what are you waiting for? Hop on over to Simply Crafts and join in the fun! Have a great day! Hugs- Glora
