I Heart You

Welcome to the first Tuesday in February. The countdown to Valentine's Day had begun in earnest. Some are planning ostentatious displays of affection, while others are plotting dramatic romantic coups. Either way, retailers end up cashing in on this one day of grand gestures.

Over at Tuesday Throwdown, we're kicking off our own love fest with this week's Challenge #133  called "Heart Strings". Our sponsor this week is Robin's Fetish but you can use any stamp or digi. All you have to do is make sure that your project has a heart and some string or twine. It couldn't be easier. And if you need some inspirational boost visit our design team and I guarantee you'll come away bursting with ideas.

Here's my simple offering for you:


I'm using these pastel pink and blue heart papers from PolkaDoodles "Sugar Birdies" CD. I applied some Crystal Stickles on the hearts. Then I adhered some bling - pink and blue - at the four corners and some red twine to tie it all together. Finally, I fussy cut the digi and layered it on a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval die cut.


As you can see, it's a tent card and I popped the image up on some foam tape.


Here's close up of the adorable digi. The bear hugging the heart is called "It's Bearly Love"  and I superimposed the sentiment "I Heart U" over the heart. I coloured the bears and the heart with SN alcohol markers.  


I had to use some more twine on the inside.  

So there you have it. Now let's see your creative efforts. Use any stamp but make sure you include a heart and some string or twine. I can't wait to see what you come up with. 


Thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya soon!

Beijinhos!
