Be Mine 2 gether 4 ever

Happy Friday!
We made it to the weekend! YAY! I so need my weekends with the way work has been so hectic lately.....hopefully they wont ask us to work weekends too! LOL! I have yet another Valentine card for you today using one of The Cutting Cafe' sets again. This set is called All About Valentine's Day. It's a big ole set and chocked full of heart-y goodness!
Using my Printmaster program, I combined two stamps to make one. Then using my printer, I just printed it right on the designer paper.
I also used a heart shaped paper doily, a piece of chocolate ribbon, my Nesties and a chocolate flower too!
I made a little seed bead and heart stick pin and tucked it into the bow. Oh, the bow.....someone asked me the other day how I tied the "one looped" bow. It's the same as usual, but at the end you pull one loop back out, tighten it, then snip off the extra piece of ribbon and then you have a one looped bow! I accidentally learned how to do this one day while trying to tie a bow in a very short piece of ribbon. I liked it so well, that I left it that way and have been using the technique ever since.
As usual, I decorated the inside to match the front and signed the back and I was done! This and several more V-day cards are for sale in my Etsy shop if you're interested!
THANKS for dropping by today and please don't forget about my giveaways...yes that's plural....there are 2! One is HERE and the other is HERE. Go sign up! You might WIN!
See you Monday with a new BBTB2 challenge! HUGS!

Pin It!
