Color My Heart - Valentine

It's one of my FAVORITE times of the year - Valentines!  I love to stamp hearts!  I haven't had the opportunity to get to as many Countdown to Valentine Love Inspiration Ideas as I have listed ... I got a virus both physically and on my computer, UGH!   I've also been in Nashville for the last 2 weeks for work so it's been a alittle bit,  crazy/chaotic.    It's all good and I feel I'm back up and stampin' ... hopefully sharing more too.    This is one of my most used CTMH Stamps - Soul Mates.    This week's Color My Heart Challenge - Cranberry and Blush.   I found I had a little more tricky time of this one since I only had cardstock in those colors but as soon as I found the little package of Bling I had left,  I knew I wanted to use those sparkly buttons.   As I mentioned,  I've been gone traveling for work and after so long on the road you begin to miss home!   I do miss my hubby and of course my Bella Puppy.  I'll be glad to get back and and see both of them.   I think this card will be PERFECT for DH as a "I'm HOME and  I missed you card?    He likes basic colors - red and black so I'm very confident he'll like this one.     He'll be surprised I made him a card "on the road" especially as busy as it's been but that's what fun!!  Surprises ...  
I hope you'll come and join us at Color My Heart this week for a FUN Valentine Challenge!

Supplies:  All CTMH

I love your card. That black stamping is just stunning! I really love the bling too! Glad your feeling better, I was getting concerned.

So enjoy this card. It is stunning and clearly captures the color challenge.

Great reminder that you can always create a themed, colour-coordinated background by stamping an image or sentiment...which sets off YOUR sentiment and pretty red heart so well. Love the stick-pin piercing the heart, too. Glad you're back in creation-mode, Lela!

Lovely card, Lela! I love the combination of black and white and cranberry and blush. It looks fantastic--especially with all the bling! I'm sure your DH will love it. Thanks for the inspiration--wish I had that stamp set!

Wonderful card, Lela! Dazzling use of the bling, and I adore the stamp set...I am so glad to hear you are feeling better, too!

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
