Good Morning !! I have a special treat for you today. As you know, I was in Colorado visiting my daughter's family. I left some of my stamped images behind and my 11 year old granddaughter made a card using the same image I chose to make a card with this week. Kinda ironic. She took pics and sent them to me so I told her I would post on my blog.

This sweet image is "Love's Unspoken Bond" from Carmen Medlin Reflections Set #1. This set is so versatile.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Love and Valentine
Crafty Cardmakers - Use Red and a Die Cut
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Something New
Ooh-La-La Creations - Bling It On
Pollycraft - New Things
The Crazy Challenge - Animals
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes

We both colored our images with Copics. My daughter is a CTMH consultant so she has lots of paper, goodies and some Copics. Mackenzie (my granddaughter) is just learning to color with them so I told her to visit Suzanne's Blog and watch the videos she has so graciously made. She also offers online classes if anyone is interested.

I used some of the new products from SCACD to accent my card. The hearts on the skirt were stamped separately and then I used my new DecoArt Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint for sparkle.

If you click on the pics to enlarge them you can really see the sparkle. The pink background paper has been sprayed with Maya Mist. These two products have to be my fav. I usually use only Stardust Stickles because it is ultrafine glitter, I was so happy to see the Glamour Paints in so many colors. The the little pearls were used with Viva Decor Paper Pen - Light Carmine. To finish the card I made some bows with my Bow Easy.

Susana has some BEAUTIFUL BEST CREATIONS PAPER PACKS. They are gorgeous !! I am sure these will go quickly.

What I find amazing about Mackenzie's card is there is not any DP paper - only cardstock. She made this card late at night and without any help. I think she did a nice job with the layout, colors, and stamping the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by and if you have time please leave Mackenzie a comment and let her know what you think.

Have a wonderful week !!

Hiya Dianne,

How are you? Very proud of your Grand daughter - with good reason too!

Oh she is a future crafter indeed - 11 years old & being able to colour with Copics.

I know grown women that run shreaking from Copics -( I used to be one) ha ha

Your card for our "Love & Valentine" challenge at OSAAT this week is Fab, love all your elements & textures & all your red tones .

Thanks for joining us at OSAAT this week!
Take care
Big Hugs
