vintage valentine

Happy Wednesday, Friends.  I'm trying to get a jump on all of my holiday crafting for 2011, so I'm starting Valentine's Day early.  I was in Michael's on the weekend and found this gorgeous print that I literally fell in love with in the store.  I mean, I bought three 12 x 12 pieces of this.  I have been dying to ink up & create with Love Birds, so I was just messing around in my craft room last night (instead of marking book reports LOL).  This is what I came up with:

Hope you are having a great time.  And for my PTI forum buds, I hope you're working on your Holiday Central goals.  I've got big plans that I'm hoping will come to fruition over the next few weeks.  You may want to follow my blog so you'll know when I start to post my Valentine treat sets.  They're going to be great.

Have a great day!!
Paper:  white (Neenah), red (Bazzill), print (Anna Griffin)
Stamps:  Love Birds
Ink:  Cranberry (ColorBox), Tuxedo Black, Chamomile Tea Dye
Other:  Large Circle & Petite Scalloped Circle dies (Spellbinders)

OMG - this is PERFECT, Suzanne! I have some DP that I've been struggling with some inspiration for, and you've just given it to me. I LOVE this card!

I can see why you couldn't pass up the patterned paper -- it's perfect with the bird cage and love bird (lonely love bird...)! :)
