Gift of chocolates

Happy valentine's day - well, almost.    It doesn't get much sweeter than a luscious box of chocolates, like this one appearing on this Penny Black stamp.   I've colored her up with prisma pencils, added doilies, a bow, daisies, butterflies and two styles of ribbon along the bottom.  The upper corner is a filigree diecut with a pearl gem added to it.  Hoping you're as lucky as this darling little bear come next Sunday.

  5. So, I'm looking through your blog...just cruising through and realizing, no wonder you're ready to move to spring and get over Valentine's Day...girl, you made a lot of Valentine cards! So then I think: I should do my DT commenting and guess what. AFTER I leave the comment above, I see you've entered this is Craft-Dee BowZ....and I'm to leave a comment for you! Should I clone the above or give you a cookie cutter comment (as we sometimes get from DT members)? Nahhh, this gal deserves a lot more than that for her efforts and the love she put into making her cards. This card is so cute and those daisies are really pretty. Do you think I did my DT obligation? I could shower you with more compliments, but then people would think I'm just kissing up so you'll send me this card (little does anyone know the beautiful cards you send me regularly!). I hope my little comment brightens up your day and that you know your art work is recognized by many and appreciated by all. XXOO, Gail Oh crappola, thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our February challenge. There...DT obligation done.

  6. Your combination of elements is super! It's not easy to mix red and pink so well, and the additional flowers make it shine! Lovely card :) Thanks for joining us at The Crafty Addicts and Good Luck! :)
