I have to confess.... I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day. To me it's always been about "forced romance." I've always said that I'd rather get flowers or candy on any other day of the year because it means my husband did it purely because he wanted to - not because the calendar said he had to. However, as a crafter, I find Valentine's Day secretly fun. I mean all those hearts and pinks and reds!! What's not to love?
So.....why aren't they any pinks or reds in my Valentine's card? Well, that brings me to the challenge part of this post. I found a couple of challenges that I thought worked well together and wanted to see what I could come up with. I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
HIMCR #31- Valentine's Day Project. The goal of this challenge is to make a non-traditional valentine project. You can read all about it here at Hiding In My Craft Room
Challenge #41 - Bringing Out the Old. The goal of this challenge is to make a project using something old (old supplies or tools not used in a long time). You can read all about this one here at Whimsical Designs
Supplies Used: Scraps!! (Love using those scraps!), ribbon from Offray, Cuttlebug folders (script and hearts). The green and brown hearts are cut from Gypsy Wanderings.
What's old? The stickers! The "candy hearts", "chocolate candy" and sentiment came from an old sticker sheet I bought a long time ago and never used. It's from Flair Designs, 2004. I think you could also classify the ribbon as old because it's been in my collection for at least two years and I never opened it. (The scraps may or may not be old......no way of knowing how long they've been in the scrap bin!)
