My Sweet Valentine

How is everyone tonight?? I am great!! I'm trying to type up this post while I am watching my favorite show....LOST!!! By the time I get this post done it will be over.
I was asked to make a valentine card for one of my friends daughter. She picked out this image from Ching-Chou Kuiks Fantasy Art Collection. The name of this image is 'Love Is Gone', from Sheet # 7/ Plate #29. This is also my DT card for Sweet Pea. Don't worry I will have more to show you this week. Well my friends daughter is 10 and she loves fairies and the colors pink and purple. When I created a card for someone I really want when they receive it that they know this card was made just for them in their taste. This little girl has a wonderful Mom!! A Mom who has someone make a card just for her. For anyone who has been reading my blog for a while knows that I make alot of cards and handmade gifts for my friends.
Here is a close up of Love is Gone!!! I think she turned out just beautiful!! I decided to make her into an easel card, because this little girl her name is Cheyenne. Which is also my oldest Daughter's middle name. Sorry, I'm just rambling on.

The DP I used is from a K&Company Valentine pack that I bought last year.
I dicided I would let her write her own sentiment on the inside, or she can stamp the inside herself with a couple of stamps I have that she can pick from.
I still have 2 more cards that I have to finish, so I will be back tomorrow to post those.
See Ya.
If anyone has created something with these stamps, please leave a comment and let me know so I can check out your creations!! I just love seeing what everyone has created with Ching-Chou Kuik's beautiful images. And remember if you create something go to the Sweet Pea Blog and find Jennifer's email and send her your creation. And we will post it on the blog during our Customer Submission week, which is the second week of every month. Can't wait to see everyone creations!!

Oh Angela, she is going to just love this card. Talk about special! My 11 year old dd is so in love with all of these stamps. I just received 4 in the mail yesterday and I let her talk me into 6 more today....You just know she had to ask really long and hard...hehehe.... I know mine will not be anything as close to yours yet, but I am enjoying practicing my coloring with them. I have to say because of your wonderful talent I have become addicted to these stamps. Have a great day, Lisa
