House of Cards Challenge


 Love is in the air at the House of Cards this month! After all it is February and what is right around the corner but the biggest day of love all year- Valentine's Day!! All month the challenge at HOC is love, love, love!!


This little critter from Penny Black's "loads of love" is on a critical phone call- he is sharing his heart.

I stamped and colored my card and then embossed it- a technique demonstrated at the Penny Black blog. instead of using a die I just used an embossing folder. It adds that extra special something to a CAS card.

There are so many challenges out there that feature love, hearts or Valentine's Day, so i decided to go for it and enter my adorable CAS card in them

AAA Cards has a wild heart challenge and a DT call. I think I will throw my hat in the ring.


The Paper Players is featuring love themed cards with critters- well geez this is a no-brainer huh?!!?




Lastly, Shopping our Stash is featuring love themed cards.
 
But please join us at House of Cards this month and show us your "love"ly creations!
