It’s my first official 2014 post for Get Inky Challenges, and the inspiration is Valentine’s/Love. If you read the Get Inky blog you’ll know…I don’t usually make Valentine’s cards as I like the sappy poems on the store bought ones.
I had a purse shaped gift card holder that I’d never used and thought it was perfect for this. I used the stitched square and heart from Get Inky to make my embellishment.
I originally thought I was going to use several hearts in many colors so I wanted to share a tip with you. While at Walmart I went to the paint department and picked up a paint strip sample in the shades of pink I wanted. It would have been perfect for many heart as they all would have been graduated in the same family. I’m sure I’ll use that idea somewhere else in the future.
Will you be joining the challenge this week? If so, I can’t wait to see what you create.
We had another round of winter precipitation, and a delayed opening at work. Normally I go in at 8:15…we didn’t have to be there until one!!! I used this opportunity to take on a few challenges.
I used the wonderful card sketch from Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap for the design layout of my card. I then used three different challenges for the embellishment of my card. Craftin Desert Divas is having a color challenge. It’s red, white, and pink so I used those for my paper colors. Cards Galore and Southern Girls are both having a bling challenge so that was very easy to combine. I also stamped the heart inside my hearts with Get Inky Stamps. I hope you love how it came out because I do.
My employer was closed today and boy did I get to have some fun. In between spending loads of time playing legos, painting, puzzles, stories and snow play I got do a layout with a TON of different inspirations.

I had some fun pictures of our son playing at the beach…well as much playing as a nine month old does, but I was stuck on how to use them. I then came across the Child’s Play Monopoly challenge, and the arrow on the go tile of the board hit me. I was going to use arrows since in the pictures he’s upside down and sideways!
I also wanted to use the new Inspired By challenge over at Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap. It was an awesome sketch!
