This Much!

Every image I look at these days I try to see how I can make it into a Valentine because Valentine's Day will be here before I know it. I really need to make some birthday cards too though because my stash is getting low, so be warned that you will see Valentine's and birthday cards for a while!
Today I made a Valentine using this cute little girl my sister Lynne drew for squigglefly. Her arms could be reaching out for a hug, or you could make her hold something in her hands like a string of hearts, but I see her saying "This Much!"





The background is chalked and the image is colored with copic markers. I used a bit of lace that has little hearts in it along the bottom, and I printed the saying out on the computer using a font called Juice.
Tomorrow is card giveaway day, so please be sure to come back for that! Thanks for looking!

This is such a cute card. Thanks for the message on my blog. Funny you should hop to me as I had hopped to your blog just before I put that post on. I hopped from Emma's to you and I was happily looking at all the images I could spend my money on.
How did your daughter and sister get into selling their images on there I would love to do that though mine are not as good as theirs :)

Hi again :)

Sorry should have thought about that when I left my last post my email is amyvgould@btinternet.com

I have sent an email via the web site asking if they let people submit images before I got your message so hopefully they should get my email from their anyway.
