10% Off Stampin Up Purchases! Valentine's Cards Full of Happy Accidents

Hello all! As you read a few days ago I decided to extend my 10% off through March 31st which coincides with SU's Sale-a-Bration. Don't forget to e-mail all orders to me at lpryor1@hotmail.com!!
Here are a couple of Valentine's cards I've put together....sometimes I loose my mojo, can you relate? When this happens I like to go back to my SU catties and CASE a project to sort of jump start the creativity process.... As you can see here I've CASE's this "Love U" card from the recent Occasions Mini catalog, but I changed a few things to make it my own. This little card literally made me buy the I {love} Love Jumbo Wheel, a product I almost never buy! I added some punched blue hearts along the bottom and another red strip above to sort of frame it up. Also, I used a chipboard "U" that I sewed a button onto and I changed up the ribbon treatment a bit to make these little flaps.
For my next card, I started by knowing I wanted to make a ribbon skirt. I won't even bore you with how many time I tried and failed at this. I even broke my sewing machine!!! I ended up using double stick Tombo to create this effect. I used the love wheel here again, layered it over my ribbon catastrophe and punched a few small hearts from my three hearts punch and then added the scallop border. Oh and nothing like a slightly crooked rub-on sentiment to tie this disaster together!!! Oh and to make matters worse, some how there was cat hair on my rub-on which permanently stuck itself to my card which I had to go back in and trim away!!! UG!!! The end result isn't all that bad but for a small and simple card MAN was this a mess. I guess that's how it happens sometimes. I think the painter Bob Ross called them "happy accidents". I used to want to stay home from school to watch him and the Price is Right!! Ahhahaha
