FMS173 and CS Linky Party


Hi everyone!  I have one more Valentine for you!  I think I’ll be done after this one, LOL!  I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week:

and I used the free image from Crafty Secrets’ Linky Party for their All You Need is Love challenge:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Crafty Secrets Valentine

I wanted to do something a wee bit different so I picked up the little bit of light and dark blue in the Valentine image for my background papers, which are from My Mind’s Eye Honey Cake line.  I punched a row of hearts with the SU Heart Border punch and backed it with some Poppy Parade cardstock.  Then I added a pretty bow with Night of Navy seam binding, as well as layering and glittering her little heart:


The sentiment is from January’s Paper Pumpkin!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy was quite the little mother, feeding her baby doll:


And mothering is hard work!  If you look closely, there are three dolls sleeping with her; you can see another set of feet peeking out from under her blankie!


Enjoy your day!
