Key to My Heart



Happy Tuesday!!! 

Wow, the first week of the New Year sure flew by quickly.  I figured it would since I was off, lol.  How long will it take you to stop writing 2012? lol.  Me too.  I figure about June it will start to become automatic.   It's time for another Challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps.  This week we are challenging you to use dies or punches.  So easy!  Have you seen all the fabulous dies over at the Loves Rubberstamps Store?  Go look!  Well leave me a comment first, but go look! lol. 

Today I am using, (new to me) My Favorite Things A La Mode - Key to my Heart.  Isn't she adorable?  Love that dress.  I colored her with several shades of grey, lol.  I used some silver spica on her key and belt for a little bling, but that did not show up well with the camera.  Thankfully my rhinestone studded ribbon did, lol.  I inked her up with my Memento Black Ink, cut out the circle dies, and glued all the layers down with The Best Glue Ever!  And I used some 6X6 papers from my stash again, whoo hoo!  I am doing so well in that department and have not picked up any new papers, but my resolve is weakening and I think I need to go check out the new Papers in the store when I'm done posting this, lol.

So who has the key to your heart?  Do you think that lock can be picked? lol.   Have you made your Valentine Day card yet?  I'll be nagging you repeatedly in January to make those cards.  I am so ashamed of myself for not getting my Christmas Cards done.  I still have all my stuff on my desk, lol.  But hey, I got Valentines Day covered! lol. 

I'm using this weeks sketch over at the MFT Forum at SCS and I'm submitting to the Simon Says Challenge Blog - using something new. 

Okay that's all from me today, head on over the Challenge Blog to see what my fellow DT members have made and leave them a comment as well, they are all fabulous designers. 

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.

This card is so elegant and pretty! Oh I just absolutely LOVE this image. I kinda have a thing for skeleton keys.

I too am gearing into the Valentine mode; although I did send my Christmas greetings out super late(past Christmas) but for sure Valentine Day cards will get made:0)

Yes, my Valentine's cards are done, but they are not as cute as this one. Love your layout, papers, and embellishment...not to mention those fabulously-colored folds in her dress.
