All You Need Is LOVE

My favorite cards to make are most definitely Valentines! Maybe it's because my favorite color is pink or maybe it's because I love swirls and hearts and lace and everything that's associated with the holiday. I just love making Valentines! One year my friend Tracy and I decided to have a few friends over to make Valentines. Tracy (who is having a baby boy tomorrow!) and I were going to create a few cards for everyone to make. We put all of the supplies in a shoebox and the girls passed them around and made one of each. Tracy and I had so much fun getting ready for the Valentine party that we couldn't quit designing cards. I think we had a dozen or more cards for everyone to make! THAT was what I call F-U-N!
I was tickled pink when my best friend,
Peggy recently sent me some Valentine diecuts made with her new Cricut! I'll be making lots of projects with them. And I have one to show you today!
I started out this project with the LOVE diecut in pink and the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge for the week. Here is what I came up with to show you.

SC159 Card Recipe: (I turned the sketch on it's side for my design.)

Stamps~ SU By Definition, Paisley; CTMH All My Love (YUMMY Blog Candy from Cindy)
Ink~ Real Red
Paper~ Real Red, Pretty in Pink, White; Flocked Red DP- Paper Bouquet @ Target
Accessories~ Cricut LOVE diecut, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, Distresser, Paper Piercer, DD Glitter, Pink Organdy Ribbon (Michaels)

I feel my stamping mojo may be coming back. I am really not sure where it's been, but I have not been stamping much at all. What do you do when the mojo goes missing?
Have a great day, friends!

WOW! That is my diecut? That is amazing! Oh my goodness. I am inspired. I want to stay up past 9 tonight and play with the Cricut.

Sweet Valentine Angel! Love your new butterfly banner! Your mojo is working! Sometimes a break is just what you needed! You go girl! Deb

Very nice! I love the layout! What do I do when I'm missing mojo? I pop in a chick flick and vege... it usually comes back in a couple of days, and it's a good excuse to watch a chick flick!

This is fabulous, Angel!

Such a beautiful valentine!! When my mojo is MIA I'll go blog hopping to get inspiration and I'll go through my pictures to see if there is anything I'd like to scrap. Either of those usually always help. :)

My mojo's been missing too...when it does i usually clean my studio. I always find something interesting to work with!!! Off to clean lol.

This is so pretty!!! I love how you turned the sketch side ways and the stamps and paper you used are beautiful!
You just have to stop looking for your mojo and sooner or later it comes back to you. From the looks of things you never even lost yours!

Great blog banner!
