C4C69 Love You Much and more!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Hope you all survived going back to work? I was actually really busy at work...and I'm glad it's weekend!!! My girls have their first basketball tournaments starting today...they are so excited and nervous at the same time...LOL...tooooo cute for words!!! Wish them luck!!!

Anyway, it's time again for another fun Crazy 4 Challenges ~ C4C69 theme. Maria is challenging us to this inspiration photo. I guess you can interpret this picture anyway you like!?!


Today also marks the second week of Guest Designing for Meljen's Designs. I'm using one of their super cute digi images called Mailed with Love. If you are not familiar with the sweet Meljen's digi images please feel free to check them out right HERE!!! More digi ideas and challenges can be found at the Meljen's Design Team Challenge Blog!!!




It just so happend that I had to use *pink* again :) !!! The DP is from the SU Melon Mambo Print Collection. After printing the digi image I colored it with these Copic Markers ~ RV0000, R000, R00, RV09, C1, C2 and Colorless Blender. I embossed the BG with the Cuttlebug Love Language Folder.The card was embellished with a Heart Border using a Martha Stewart Punch, some PTI Ribbon & Button, some Pink Scrap Floss, a couple Pink Rhinestones and the sweet Heart Trinkets I found at the Ellen Huton's Store.

Hope you like this idea and you have time to play the C4C69 with us!?! Make sure to swing by the C4C blog to see all the fabulous samples the Crazies have created!!!

Have a fabulous weekend and I'll be back later with another card and some exciting news :) !!! See ya ~S~
