Eyelet and Coffee Valentine

And all this time my doctor thought it was A-fib!!!

Hi, Friends......

I am here with another fun valentine using the new Love From Me Digital Set by the wonderful and talented Julee Tilman at Verve Stamps. This is a free download (only thru Feb. 15, so hurry!) and she has a challenge for you to enter if you use it, too! Yay!! I don't use digis very often, but I am surprised and pleased with how much fun they are!!!. THANK YOU, Julee, for sharing this amazing set!

My background for this card is from a scrap of very ancient DCWV patterned paper. I used Spectrum Noirs to color the coffee cup and covered it with dazzling shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen. Oh, my...I LOVE that sparkle!!! I used a variety of fun puffy hearts from my dear friend and neighbor Kathy Y (THANKS, Kathy!!) and also some iridescent adhesive dots that Carole Jones sent me. (THANK YOU, Carole!) I finished it off with eyelet lace and ribbon from my stash. Fun!!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate your kind comments!! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. I'll be staying home with my kitties because my dear hubby is on a work trip. Sounds like a Netflix night with chocolates!  So life isn't too bad.... :)

  1. I love this! I'm going to go download the free digi stamp right now! I've never used digi stamps myself - I've got a whole folder of them on my laptop (all free ones!) so maybe should give it a go. I love the sparkly coffee cup - don't you just love Wink of Stella pens?! xxx

  2. So fabulous! Love that sparkly pink mug and all those little hearts of steam.

  3. Great image and like the idea of the hearts flowing out of the cup.
    Thank you for joining out 'Hearts/Flowers' challenge this week at Allsorts.


  4. AWESOME!!!! Janis this is really great I love how you blinged up the cup with pink sparkle!! I love that digi set Julee gave us all You did a spectacular job with it

  5. so super the sparkle on the cup!!

  6. It's pink! And pretty! And I love it. You should get that heartbeat checked out by a cardiologist. ;-)

  7. Oh my gosh Janis, this is SO pretty! I love all that pink and shimmer (and you know I'm not usually a pink person, so this one is really special). The sprinkling of tiny puffy hearts and the eyelet lace make this one so yummy. Netflix and chocolate sounds like a winner to me!

  8. Who could not love this it is lovely...Lis

  9. Fabulous and sweet all that sparkle.

  10. Love that heart covered, sparkly coffee cup! Great card! Thanks for sharing with us at the D2BA February challenge!

  11. Sweet card! Now we need to talk someone onto masking that cat heartbeat as a stamp!!
