FCCB Challenge Me Monday - #97 Love is in the Air (Late Post)

Hi Sweet Friends!

Today I have a card to share with you that I created for a previous FCCB challenge.  I had received some sponsored product from K. Andrew Designs and didn't get a chance to post my project for that challenge.  I just felt awful that I didn't get my project done in time and was determined to make it up to Kristal so that she would know how much I appreciate her generosity with us at FCCB.  I'd love it if you would check out our Wednesday Winner's post, where this project is showcased.  That is when we pick our Top 5 out of the many challenge participants posts.  I would highly encourage you to check out the Top 5 gals blogs.  Some of them are very new to blogging and their talent deserves recognition!

This card was made for the theme Love is in the Air and was to include a heart and at least one Cricut cut.  I used two of the stamps I received on this project and I just love how unique they are and how fitting they were for my idea!  I hope you enjoy my card!


 The cute love balloon and the "I dig you" were from K. Andrew Designs.  Aren't they sweet? :0)

I added several little details to the dog, faux stitching, colored pencil, Copics and Zig pens, along with cute little rhinestones for the eyes.  They do sparkle a bit in person, but the photo didn't capture that.

For this project I used my Martha Stewart punch-around-the page (Double Loops) for the first time!  I love how it turned out!  All the paper and cardstock is from my stash.  The large postage stamps were created using Spellbinders embossing dies.  I used a gorgeous sample of twine that I received from Bella Creationz.  Some of you may remember that I named one of their twines and received a full roll and this sample as a gift!  How awesome is that?!!  I digress... The hearts and the puppy were created using the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge.  One of my fellow teammates, Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps with Passion, at FCCB inspired me by using this cut and I just had to try it out!  Please go check out her adorable creation with this same puppy cut.  She is fantastic!  Lastly, I detailed the card with this awesome gold gelly pen from Creative Memories.  Best pens ever!  They are liquidy (in a good way) and don't stop short as normal gelly rollers have a tendency to do.  I LOVE them!!!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  As always, I would love to hear your comments!  Don't forget to scroll down one more post for the current FCCB Challenge Me Monday post.  Would love to have you all play along!

XO ~ Amy Jo
