With work and home life so hectic, I don't feel like there is much time to play. I was supposed to be doing some catch-up work today but decided to give myself a break and browse splitcoast and found the challenge and thought I would try it and this is what came up. Strangely I feel more serene and happy now.
The basecard is Wisteria Wonder with a layer of pink pirouette - stamped with some stems on the bottom in old olive . Stamped the fairies and sentiment in memento tuxedo black and colored
Litle pearls in the center of the flowers - some popped with dimensionals.

Take a 4 1/2 x 11 inch Cherry Cobbler CS here and score it at 1/2", 2 1/2", 5 3/4", 7 3/4" (here from the left). Score 1 3/4 " across from the bottom. Cut away the top part except for the last panel which will become the back of the barn to decorate.
The horse is from the Horse Frontier set from eons ago fussy cut and attached using a 4 3/4 strip scored 1/2 inch on both sides and attached as shown. The pocket behind the horse if for the little $$ I slip in.
The pile of hay and the water trough is from MFT the Whole Herd set mounted with dimensionals.
you can flatten it one direction or another to mail it. The horse is so realistic- I hope Gabs loves it!

I used Smooch Gold Lame to add a little sheen of gold on the contact points. A clean and simple card- my favorite kind. I think next time I will put the circuitboard on a green color square to make it even more circuit board like.....

Hermelinda did this really cool Zfold birthday card and I've been meaning to use it. Then I saw the Every day Hero set and had to have it and loved the city scape.
The sentiment from Super Duper stampset goes so well with this.
I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point and then again with Real red. The new stamp pads are juicy enough that if you put the clear embossing powder on it right away it sticks and lets you emboss it. Cut it out and layer with dimensional to pop it up as shown.
The super dude was colored in with blender pen and the real red, pacific point and soft suede for the hair. The skin was colored with Blossom Blush- retired- marker.

I used the old lace ribbon large border punch for the handle and just scotch taped it onto the inside of the basket sides.
I found this sweet Mint colored berry basket in ceramic and had to make a little basket for my DH, perfect for the little bunny.

You want to emboss with Falling Petals embossing folder but put the embossing plates from the Big Shot only to where you want the texture to go so you don't encroach on the hearts to the right.
Stamp little hearts with Sealed with Love set and diecut them out- I like the little white around the edge that offsets it from the background with this die. Stamp Happy Valentine's day in red ink onto a Stitched Circle cut out of whisper white CS. Layer on top of the lacy doily. It looked a bit empty so I was playing with silver thread and cord and ftinally settled on the Sunshine Wishes thinlits dies - I used the flower looking thing because I liked the loop de-loop of the thicker glittery shimmer paper over the thread that seemed be lost.
Now that my kids are older they are not doing Valentine swaps- where did the time go? - now I have to justify buying all the Valentine stuff - Anyhoo, I just loved it and I thought I should make it for my office staff who work so hard all the time. With the kit it was super speedy although diecutting the wings with the heart die from the Love Notes framelit took the longest.
The Owl is done with Pink Pirouette CS- the body is made from the Best Badge punch with the heart that comes with the kit stamped with sentiment from same. Love the little heart outline that fits inside the heart and the sentiment and the heart nose is from the owl builder punch in Peekaboo Peach. Take 3/8 inch strip and punched a bunch of hearts in a row to make assembly line style.
see my basket of owl valentine treats for my wonderful staff.....

Diecut the basket from Sahara Sand and add the flower stems and the flowers. color in with watercolor pencils and blend with aqua painter to create the soft look. color the leaves with Mint Macaron marker.

Watercolor pencil the chick in daffodil and use Peach marker for the beak.
A sweet little card- the sentiment "have a happy day" from the Hey, Chick fits on the top corner perfect
