Pucker Up!


Hi everyone,

Welcome to another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Christi Thorsen's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week it is Jana Weaver’s turn to issue the challenge which is to create a Valentines card without using ANY Red or Pink!!! That means Sophia can’t be wearing red or pink either!!!! (we could only use pink on her cheeks if we liked!) ….. wow cruel Jana …. hehe!

Actually it wasn’t to hard to create my card without using red and pink, it could have been worse she could have said no hearts too! I actually turned my card into an Anniversary card, but it could be either …. the front would be the same for either occasion, but as it was my 37th Wedding Anniversary last week … I made this for my DH!

I used Paper Pretties “Mistletoe Kisses” to create my card. Now this is actually a Christmas themed stamp, but I thought it would work for a Valentine/Anniversary card too! All I did to make it work was stamp it onto white card and cut out around the image. I cut off the mans left arm where he is holding the mistletoe … it didn’t hurt him really and now it just looks like his arm is around his wife! I also didn’t want holly on the apron so I cut out a strip of designer paper to put over that area.


The layout of my card uses this week’s Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenge (MTSC53), I did tweak it just a little as I wanted to also use my new Martha Stewart Heart Deep Edge Border Punch!
