Challenge: Be My Valentine!


Happy Monday! Apologies for this challenge being posted later than I wanted – I’m in the midst of a stinkin‘ cold which took pleasure in taking over my weekend :o(

Enough sniffling and moaning from me though, are you ready for a new challenge?! I hope so because for this one we want you to get ‘loved-up’ and think ‘Valentine’s’ with your creations. Remember it doesn’t have to be restricted to a card and can be a little valentine treat for anyone! Don’t panic, it doesn’t have to be one huge slushfest on a card declaring your love for someone! If you’d rather, you could think about just featuring one aspect of Valentine’s (e.g Hearts) on your creation.

Well my example started with this one card…

..and by the end of my inky session, it turned into this!

These are a cute 3×3 inches in size – so sweet! I’m selling these at work to raise money for the British Heart Foundation – I’ve sold a few today! If some don’t sell, I can always sneak them into my guy’s packed lunch for the remainder of the year ;D

Here they are closer up:
