Heart U

Hi ya friends,
What a busy week this has been, but I'm looking forward to some crafty time this weekend to work on my Valentine's Day goodies. I sooooo need some lovely crafternoons!
Today I have a card I just had to make to decompress from a particularly icky day at school :(
Here's my card:
As soon as I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I knew I needed to make a pocket front card. The papers are from the Yours Truly collection by Echo Park- luv it! The bingo card was made with the Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set from My Creative Time. There's a heart ribbon slide with white ribbon in the center of the bow & then added a few pins to finish it off. I felt like the bottom pocket front looked a bit bare, so I added a blingy flourish.
Here's a peek at the card without the pocket inserts:

Here's the Mojo sketch:

I will lovingly be participating in the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges: Love
DYSU Challenge: Love
Paper Play Challenges: Love Letters
Divas by Design: Love is in the Air
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes...with a Love theme
Tip Top Tuesday: Valentines (TIP: I trim the sharp points of stick pins with a heavy-duty wire cutter. That way, the recipient doesn't accidently poke her/himself while admiring your crafty creation. :)

Ahhh, what would I do without the joys of paper crafting to calm my nerves??? Here I come 3 day weekend!!!
