Puppy LOVE!! and a Valentines Challenge

 
http://www.chouxchouxpaperart.com/2016/01/challenge-3-valentineshearts.html
Lori over at Chouxchoux is having another fun challenge this month with a prize!!  $15 to spend at one of my favorite places, Funkie Junkie Boutique.  It's all about the LOVE!  This is one of my submissions for that challenge:
 
 
So... Adorable, right?  I stumbled upon the January release over at Craftin Desert Divas this month and what did I find but this awesome Heart of Hearts cutout die... it cuts out this beautiful window of hearts AND as a bonus you get all the little cutout pieces to use as well.  There are a couple other really neat dies in the set which I'll be using soon and I think you might just decide you need this die set.  The paper is from the pack that my friend Linda (who doesn't have a blog yet) gave me because she didn't know what to do with it... trying to give her some ideas... hopefully this is helping.  Although, I'm afraid I may be enabling her because she too just may "need" this die set once she sees it.
 
 
The pup?  I'm in love with him.  He's a digi download that I got in the Desert Divas shop today.  Yup... I saw it... I wanted it... and I got it ... today.  I'm really not big on digis... or haven't been... but it was so easy.  $.99 and I have him forever and I can make him any size I want him.  Will I do away with my stamps?  NO WAY!!  Will I buy another digi... oh yes... I'm sure I will.  The ribbon is Paper Sweeties awesome crinkled seam binding ribbon and the flare is from last year's CTMH Valentines assortment.  I know you can barely see it here, but that's why I like it... that arrow on the ribbon cluster... that's Heidi Swap as well as the "adore" sentiment at the bottom of the card.


So... shakers... I love them... and I know you do too.  This shaker sequin mix is so yummy.  If you look closely you can see there are little tiny flat hearts which come in the mix or you can buy a baggy of them separately and they are perfect for flat shaker elements... which you will see that soon as well.  But a baggy of these beautiful mixes and hearts is just $1.00 right now... and as I'm saying that I'm thinking I better order some more right now before they are sold out.. you can't beat it!  AND did I mention free shipping until January 31st??


Thanks for stopping by again today and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Atlantic Hearts and maybe even another Valentines card... two posts on a Monday?  Unheard of!!  And don't forget to play along at Chouxchoux!!
