It's raining cats and dogs right now and I am glad to have a dry, and comfortable place to drink coffee and talk with you about making cards! There are several challenges I hope to enter this week and one I look forward to every Monday is MIM from Nichole Heady's blog. Check it out HERE. The January release preview is under way, so after you see some fabulous new products, scroll down to the video tutorial by Dawn McVey.
Can I just say... I had a blast making this card. I've never given a lot of thought to Valentine cards. I make one for my Sweetheart and that's about it. But I have Valentines on the brain right now and a LOT of stamp sets with which to create them. It was so fun to mix and match several sets, use the masking technique on many of the tickets and feel as though I had come up with a card that a man would enjoy receiving. The inside is blank and as Erin Lincoln would say, "you can add something a little racy"!
