Blog Hop at Laura's Loft

Hi Everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I usually lose my creative mojo right after the holidays- to much crafting like drinking can pay a toll on a girl's creativity. But like any good hangover cure (we all have one- mine is LOTS of OJ!!) an awesome blog hop filled with inspiration is just what I need to kick start my mojo!  

Today is the January Blog Hop for Laura's Loft. This month's theme is "Love Grows Here". If you arrived here from Emma's blog, I know her creations inspired you! I can only hope I can do the same!

We are also showcasing a guest designer: Nico and Valentina. Please be sure to check out their work!

Sooooo onto my creations!!

I am just lovin' the new "girlfriend" collection by CAS-ual Friday has just released. See yesterday's blog post . Today I am featuring the "love ya" Fri-die. Be sure to check out Laura's shop for all of the new collection. I used my papers as the inspiration for the colors. I die cut the words and colored them with my copic markers. Sometimes it is just easier to let the papers dictate the coloring.

My first attempt at this card was with the words popped up on foam. It just looked liked I was trying to hard.

What do you think?

My next creation uses the "curtis" background and the "love ya" die again from CAS-ual Friday.

I inked the background with Ruby red and coral berry from the Altenew Red Cosmos ink collection. I added glitter to the center heart, because I just read online that glitter is another sure fire cure for a creative hangover!! I am feeling better already!
