Love Struck

We had our Valentine Sale at church this past Sunday -  a great success - we sold $140.00 worth of cards, treat boxes and Valentine chocolate lollipops!   Elizabeth, Jeannine and I were quite pleased.  I'm taking a few of the left overs to work to try and sell to co-workers this week (!)

But I'm still making Valentines -  because I just got some new goodies in the mail.  Today I'm using my new Paper Smooches stamp and die set -  Love Struck.
 I die cut the circles with my new Stitched Mats Circles from Lil' Inker Designs.  I die cut the red circle with the Snowfall die from Memory Box to look like places the arrows hit and missed!  I only thought of it when I was looking for a red scrap big enough to cut the circle and I found this piece that I had cut the Snowfall on but hadn't used -  and I thought "A ha"! that would look like a target full of holes from the arrows! - so there you go - that's how creativity strikes!

I made it a round card for the CAS on Sunday challenge
I used red and teal for the Dynamic Duos challenge
I loosely used the Just Us Girls Sketch

Stamps:  Love Struck - Paper Smooches
Paper:  white, pure poppy - PTI, Pacific Point - SU
Ink:  Ranger Distress Festive Berries, Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  foam dots, Snowfall die - Memory Box, Stitched Mats Circles - Lil'Inker Designs, 1 1/4" circle punch - Ek Success, Arrow dies Love Struck Icons - Paper Smooches, Corner Rounder - Zutter
