heart of gold

We were challenged to make Valentines without using red, pink, or purple on the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps list this Feb. Added to the challenge was the fact that I don't have his heart stamps.
My solution was to die cut hearts with Nestabilities dies, stamp and emboss them on a couple of the stamps I do have. The first and third card were stamped on Michael's pot stamp. The second card was stamped on the large star. I went for a clean and simple look.

The sentiments were printed on the computer. I had fun using the sewing machine too.

You are amazing!

This was the sketch Jen del Muro challenged us with for Feb. i{heart} I've done it on a white background and a kraft background just for fun.
The little guy lifting more weight than you or I could is from Mo Manning ;-) There are silver metallic embellishments on both cards but they didn't scan.
I love Jen's sketches and can't wait to see what she comes up with for March.
