Hi ALL!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and managed to stay warm. It was a nice weekend here in Central Texas.

This image is perfect for our challenge this week. I figure it can be used to send love anytime of the year, but perfect for Valentine's. It is a Lockhart stamp - "Mailbox of Love".

Our wonderful DT was challenged this week to make a Valentine's project using the colors pink, red, and purple. I just happen to have the right color of DP. The DP is K and Company and has some glitter on it and worked well with the image. The cardstock is Doodlebug glitter. Since I am sending this to my grandchildren I thought a shaker card would be perfect and it has been a long time since I have made one. The little red hearts inside the shaker are MS. The scallop is a Nestabilitie and the border and hearts are MS punches. I love the detail of the heart punch.

The image is stamped with Momento ink and colored with Copics. I want to let you know Susana also sells the Copics in color bundles. Even though it is inside a shaker I still used Stickles for some glitz on the hearts. To finish it off I added a bow (made with my Bow Easy) and added a charm.

I hit the jackpot on challenges this week. I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Belli Challenge - Ribbon
Charisma Cardz #5 - I Love you
Lili of the Valley #46 - Valentine
Paperplay Challenge - Love Notes
Frosted Designs - Valentine
Fussy & Fancy #3 - Hearts
Raise the Bar - Hearts
Ooh-La-La Creations #47 - Love
Stamp with Fun - Hearts
The Pink Elephant - Mushy Gushy Valentine
Created by Hand - Valentine
Creative Card Crew #44 - Valentine
Everybody Art Challenge #78 - Valentine
My Time to Craft Challenge #18 - Hugs and Kisses
Stamp Something - Love Somethings
Stampin for the Weekend - Valentine
Crazy 4 Challenge - Valentine

The top punch on the inside is a new MS deep edge punch. On the bottom I used a heart Nestabilitie and then added two of the red glitter hearts.

Be sure and check out the other DT projects here.

Also, a reminder that Susana has alot of new items in the store including the new Ultrafine Flower Soft.

Thank you for stopping by and I really appreciate all the comments and checking out your blogs.
