Themed Thursday: Valentine

School has been cancelled again today!  It’s so cold outside!  Brr!  We were out briefly this morning, taking dear husband to work and we could hear the snow crunching beneath the tires in protest!  I’m sure it’s going to feel cold when I run into the post office later this morning, the freeze your nose hairs kind of cold!

This morning, the little one is napping nicely and the older two are playing well, so I’m eeking in a little creative time while all is calm!  I’m in Valentine’s Day mode now.  Afterall, it’s less than two weeks away!  I haven’t played with any of my Magnolia stamps yet this week, so I chose to color a sweet little Tilda image.  This week’s Ways to Use It Challenge (#308) over at Splitcoast Stampers is to use hearts!  I also tried to play along with yesterday’s Sketch Challenge (#318) and discovered the Just Magnolia Challenge for this past week is to use dots!  Then, I found the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge this week is to use hearts also!  Wow!  Four challenges in one card!  Hooray!  🙂

Stamps – Magnolia (Tilda), Inky Antics (sentiment)
Paper – SU Poppy Parade & Basic Gray cardstocks, SU Sunny Garden DP, Paper Trey white cardstock
Ink – SU Basic Gray (sentiment), Poppy Parade (sponging around main image)
Coloring – Copic markers (Hair: E33, E99, YR21/Skin: E00, E000, E11, R20/Clothing: C1, C3, C5/Hearts: R02, R05, R08)
Accessories – silver brads, Heart Nestabilities, SU Eyelet Border punch & Word Window punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder

I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day!!
