Challenge Cards......

I decided to spend some creative time on a Saturday afternoon.  I needed to work on my Valentine's cards for an upcoming workshop so I thought this would be the perfect time!  I turned to the internet for some inspiration and ended up at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog.  This blog posts weekly challenges and requires the use of Close to My Heart products.  I decided to take the plunge and enter this week's challenge.  The challenge was to create a clean and simple project.  You might think this was an easy task, however, I am so used to very detailed designs that it made this a definite challenge.  Here is my take on the challenge:

I used Chocolate and Ruby ink to stamp my images.  Stamped images are from S1501, the stamp of the month for January and C1604 Forever in My Heart from our Seasonal Expressions catalog.

This card was inspired by my good friend, upline, and mentor Michele Rowley.  She also posted an entry in the challenge.  Her card was part of a blog hop for the January stamp of the month.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards.  If you would like to make these cards, I have an upcoming workshop on February 8th.  Please feel free to contact me for more info or visit my Facebook page
