Paper Sweeties February Release Countdown!

Hello Friends!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all...hugs!  I hope that you have a wonderful day with your loved ones!  Please scroll down for this is my second post for the day.

I'd like to welcome you to Paper Sweeties Release Countdown!  The above card today highlights Pretty Posies with coordinating die.  The gorgeous rose that I colored with copics is from the new set along with three other blooms, heart, and leaves.  You will want to purchase this wonderful set for all your spring projects!

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with red.  The patterned papers are from Crate Paper and Authentique.  I colored Jake and Sophie with copics and cut them out with coordinating dies.  Jake's outfit is from the set Hippity Hoppity and Sophie's is from It's Tea Time.  The sentiment is from the new set Garden Time.  And, the small heart is from the set Stand Add:on-Fresh Baked.  

Ready for more inspiration?  Sure you are, so please follow along with the list below to see what my fellow teammates created...

    I've missed leaving you sparkly love... unfortunately my Blogger absence will continue indefinitely, which breaks my heart. My arm injury remains a burden and I cannot craft or type long enough to leave comments. I can peek in on my phone to see what you've been up to, but that's about it. Additionally, my sweet mom had hip replacement surgery. She requires my presence and assistance 24/7. When we are both healed up, I will return to crafting and commenting. Thank you for the love and encouragement you have always shown me. You are a blessing!

    Sparkly hugs and blessings,

  11. Super, stinkin' sweet, and such a gorgeous palette! Lovin' all the polka dots, too! Happy Valentine's Day, Maria!
