For this card I have used the Argentine Tango dancers image from Delicious Doodles and in the back I have used the new Valentine vintage postcard from Sugar Creek Hollow
I did paint the L in love with some Gossamer Gold spray ( sprayed in the cap and painted it with a brush) from Lindys Stamp Gang.
My very big heart is one that came in a humongous RAK from my mum! Thank you so much!

It is not so easy to see but I have also added a black fabric rose.
This one is just gorgeous! But it does not photograph very well ;o)

Now run over to the Midnight Madness blog, see what my talented DT sisters have come up with and join us for the fun!

I have used Priscillastyles Heart wreath. Colored it with the little sparkeling paint that I got form Lindys stamp gang.  
Mine was Cocoa Bean Copper, and I used the Gossamer Gold spray to create the DP. 
My triangle was dryembossed with a rose embossing folder that I got in a RAK from Tracy. Then I rubbed it with Vintage Photo distress ink and painted over it with some crackle paint. Then I highlighted the embossed rose with the Gossamer Gold (sprayed into the cap and painted on the rose with a brush).

Now run over to the Midnight Madness blog, find some inspiration and come play with us!

Of all the unusable things in the world, napkin holders is to me one of those thing I thought I would never, ever need - or want. 

But well, suddendly it was one of those things I just have to have! How am I going to set a beautiful table without napkinholders? But how many of these do I need? 6? 12? 24?


I have used this tutorial from the SCS. 

Supplies:
Grungeboard basic swirls
White acrylic paint
Distress ink "Vintage photo"
McGill punch - pine
Paper flower from Kort og Godt
Metal from Kort og Godt
Pearl from Kort og Godt

  Congratulations!!


We have got a lot of snow this week so I tried to cheer myself up with making a colorful and friutiful card this week.




My image this week is a digistamp from our sponsor Doodle Pantry called FruitHat - I think this hat is so fun! This is a hat that will make the world smile! I have colored it with watercolorpencils, and then covered the whole thing with Diamond glaze.
I also just love that I just the other day found this little hatcharm to go with it.
If you, like me find coloring difficult then you really should stop by the Doodle Pantry blog. Laurie has got a lot of fantastic coloring tutorials there!

Our monthly sponsor is Lindys Stamp Gang. In her shop she has some very, very cool stuff. We all got to play with her "Try me out"-kits, wich is sprays with lots of shimmer in them - and I mean lots!


I got the Gossamer gold, the Cocoa bean copper and the Mission bells brown. And they are absolutely gorgeous! On these flowers I have used the Gossamer Gold. The flowers were original some peach colors, but just a little spray and they were gold. It is extremely hard to photograph shimmer, but thay look absolutely amazing in real life. I am in love!
I also love some of the names these sprays have got - I just must get my hands on the Screaming banshee black!

You really should stop by Lindys to see all the faboulus stuff she has! This is cardmakers heaven!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Now run over to the Mdinight Madness blog, check out the DT cards, get some inspiration and come play with us!

Challenges:
Creative Cowgirls (2 weeks, 2 entries) - Something new 
Catch The Bug (3 entries) - anything goes
Craft Your Days Away (2 weeks) - anything goes
My new stuff is both the image, 
the sprays and the metal charm.
