Love Is In the Air

It's Valentine's Day very soon, that time of the year when anything pink or red trebles in price!

Well, you can feast your eyes on the wonderful designs over on the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog and feel the love that the design team have put into their cards.  Our theme this week is 'With Love' and it certainly shows in all the fab designs.  For the top prize in our challenge this will be $9 to spend in the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet  but you must use a Stitchy Bear image. If a non-Stitchy image is used then you will be entered into a draw for the chance to win $3 to spend in the store. Our rules are very simple:-

Our general rules for entering our challenge are very easy:-

1. You may enter as many times as you like when using a Stitchy Bear digi stamp to win our top prize this week. But, if you choose to enter without using one of the images from the store then you will be entered into a separate draw for $3 to spend in the store. You may enter the challenge a maximum of three times with a non-Stitchy image.

2. You must link back to our blog.

3. No back linking, it must be a new creation after our blog goes live.

For my card this week I chose Winter Elf by Scrappers Delight, isn't she a sweetie!  

I've coloured her with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers and used a Sakura Souffle pen on the white fur.  She's been mounted her on a pink mat to give some definition, The background paper is from Dovecraft (I think).  Another lovely banner die bought from the lovely Tams and  Memory Box Precious Hearts die cut. The sentiment is self generated.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
