You Color My World!

Hi Crafty Friends!
With the "BIG" holidays over it's time to focus on the "LITTLE" ones or what some people call "Hallmark" holidays. First up, VALENTINE'S DAY! The LOVE of my LIFE is my puppy Maddie but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate! Pink and Red are my FAVORITE colors so this is my favorite holiday for creating cards! This was a quick and simple card to make.

Make Crafty Friends Q&A:
Q: What is your favorite Holiday to make cards for?
A: Me? I love Christmas and Valentine's Day because as I mentioned above I LOVE the color RED!



I started with this darling stamp set from C.C Designs "Nerdy" and just stamped the pencil and the crayon.
I colored them with copic markers and highlighted them with a white gel pen:
Yellows: Y08, Y15, Y17
Reds: R22, R24, R29
Pinks: RV02, RV23
Earths: YR00, E11
Then I used my Misti to stamp the cute little faces on them.
Next, I took my white cardstock from PaperTrey Ink and cut the 81/2 x 11 in half to make my card base. Then I used a Bo Bunny Heart Stencil to create the border of hearts using a Ranger blending tool and  Candy Apple Red Distress Ink Oxide.

You can see a little red smudge on the left... I just used my white gel pen to cover my mistake. Then I used my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle Die to cut my Doodle Bug Patterned Paper also from the Kat Scrappiness Store to fit the inside of my heart frame.
I glued that in the middle of my card then added my pencil and crayon characters. I got my Misti back out to add the sentiments and hand drew the little doodle swirl from the sentiment to the cute little characters.
 And here is the finished card! I just love these sentiments and the crayon and pencil are TOO SWEET.
