It's a Chick's Friendly Valentine Parade!




I Hope you all are having a FABULOUS Friday. Today's project is a Challenge hosted by Mandy at Limelight. Every month she challenges her design team to a project. This months project was to make a Valentine gift and matching card for a friend. PERFECT!! I love challenges, and was more than happy to create a project for my friends.

You see, I have 2 very good friends that are serious card makers, and they are also my my partners and crime on my shopping trips, so I made each of them a mini tote bag filled with mini snickers, and a matching card. My tote bag was inspired by Beth Matson.

Once again, I have used Lilly & Billy set by Pink Cat Studio, and Bittersweet DP by basic grey. I also used 2 different sized Prima flowers. All can be purchased at Limelight.

While making this card, I ran out of red gems. So I took clear gems and colored them with my copic markers. They worked perfectly. You have got to love the Copics.

If you have not had a chance to visit Limelight Papercrafts, now is the time to head over there. They are having a SALE and have a CLEARANCE section at the store! And let me tell you, NOW is the time to be stocking up on CARDSTOCK of all types! All of our Bazzill, DoubleMates (Worldwin), and Waste Not Paper cardstocks are 30-50% off!!

Also, have some time for some challenges?? Limelight Papercrafts has issued another Sketch and Product Challenge! And...we are sponsoring the Dutch Dare Card Challenge this week! Click on the links for details... and to see what prizes are being offered up!

If you get a chance, Go head over to the LIMELIGHTs Chick's blogs, and see what projects they came up with .

Have a wonderful Weekend and Happy Crafting!

What lucky friends you have Kristen!

Mary C said...

Those are sooo cute Kristen. If your good partners-in-shopping don't like your gifts I'm sure you could find some new friends(sisters maybe) that would love them! Or did you make one for yourself for your friends to fill on one of your shopping sprees, Shop Hop maybe to show their graditude. You are so talented Kristen!
