Welcome to the Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Hopefully you have hopped over from Angie's blog at http://www.atuttletime.blogspot.com/. Wasn't her project awesome! If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start and the beginning of the hop, please go to Ellen's at http://www.cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/.

Now onto my card. I decided to use my new Imagine today. It really is an awesome machine. I chose the Better Together cartridge. It has a lot of great images that will work wonderfully on cards as well as layouts.

The two little birds from the first page were perefct for a Valentine card. I combined it with the background layers from a different page. I cut them out to fit on my 4x6 kraft base. A little twine, flowers and a button and Voila - a super cute card!




Aren't they sweet? Do you know what else is sweet? Blog Candy!




If you would like a chance to win, please become a follower and leave a comment with a way to contact you. Thanks for stopping. Your next stop is my beautiful and crafty daughter, Taylor!http://southernscrapper2010.blogspot.com/

  3. I like how you added that center piece for the birds on top of the card base. The twine is a nice touch.

  6. Darlene, I must admit, your Love Birds card is the FIRST card I've liked that I've seen using the Imagine. So many of the others look too close to Hallmark pre-prints and take away from the uniqueness and sweetness of HANDMADE. Very sweet! And I'm always looking for more uses for the ton of baker's twine I have. LOL -- bought in bulk, will have for YEARS, unless I start a bakery (NOT!!!!) OH, and I'm a new follower!!!!

    Fondly,
    Ellen (CardMonkey) ♥
