All You Need is Love

Love, Love, All you need is love...remember that song from long ago? Well, the day for all hearts to come alive is here and the florist is pleased with the number of flowers and chocolate that has been sold.  As for me, I think if I were given a box of markers or crayons and a bouquet of lace I would be just as happy and feel just as loved (smiles).

Today I am going to share two cards with you that I hope you will like.  One is without any coloring and the other is with an image and coloring.  They both represent the day of caring and loving one another.  So here we go.



This card was created using Spellbinders Nested Hearts Die, Martha Stewart Border Die, Lace, Ribbon and DP from Cosmos. I inked my edges using Distress Inks, printed out a greeting and added a lock from my stash to complete the card.  I couldn't find a key flat enough for the inside so I just stamped a greeting.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Moo-Mania - #159 Love (2/20)
Creative Moments - #136 Anything Goes (2/19)
Crafty Gals Corner - #159 Add A Heart (2/26)
Craftaholics R Us - #7 RED (2/20)
Crafty Addicts - #45 Anything Goes/Loved Up




When I created this card I was trying to use paper I had in my stash from last year and I think it is by Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.  I think my image is one from Mo Manning but I can't recall the name of it or anything.  I colored her with my Copics, added a few Recollection flowers, stamped and cut out a greeting using Die'namics Fishtail dies to complete the card. On the inside, the heart border punch is one of Martha Stewarts.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes/Use Real Stamp (2/27)
Crafty Creations - #360 Anything Goes (2/27)
Crafting By Design - Be My Valentine (2/20)
Pause Dream Enjoy - #7 Anything Goes (2/20)
Try it On Tuesday - Love Is In The Air (2/19)

That's all I have for today. I really must go see about my laundry, after all the washer stopped almost an hour ago and the dryer who knows.  Seems like I forget everything whenever I go in my craft room (you know what I mean).

But as always thanks for stopping by and find beauty in all things.

Wonderful cards Lesia - and yes I know what you mean about the machines stopping and not realising it when you are crafting - happens here too, and when I am reading!

Great to meet you at Moo Mania & More!
Both cards are wonderful - I can't decide a favourite - your card making style is brilliant!

You and the beatles are so right!
