Love Is All Around - CDD, FCCB, & BBTB2 Challenges

Red, White or Pink Linky Party

KBD $15
Cardz TV Stamp Set

My Project:

I decided to combine all three of the challenges starting today into one card - they all coincide so I thought, why not?  I used my Art Philosophy cartridge from Close To My Heart and the new Skylark Stamp Set from the new Spring/Summer 2014 CTMH Catalog, Spellbinder's, some paper from American Crafts, some baker's twine my friend Evelyn sent me, and a stamp from a Fiskars Holiday Set.  I have another video for you to see how this card all came together - there's even a sneak peak at the new CTMH Catalog :)

If you are interested in purchasing any of the products from Close To My Heart, please head on over to www.molliesmotif.ctmh.com and shop with me!!!


Over at BBTB2 this week Jayne has come up with a super fun challenge to create a Valentine project and make sure to use a heart!
