You Are

You Are - I finally have found time to write this post. My daughter and her children have been so sick lately that I have had so little time for crafting or blogging. The youngest is sick again, but napping at the moment, so I am taking advantage of a few spare moments and writing this post.

This is the Valentines that I made for my Wednesday crop group. We shared our Valentine creations yesterday, so I need not worry if they will see it and give away my surprise. One good thing about being so busy with sick little ones!

My DP is Noteworthy by Making Memories. Everything was inked with Victorian Velvet.

All of the dies are Spellbinders, to include my new grands. The sentiment is Inkadinkado. I stamped it with Memento Black and used fine black embossing powder.

My stickpin is made with a lot of beads from my favorite bead shop, Pizzazz Aplenty.

My bow is made with seam binding from SU and I dyed it with my Copic's refill. This one is R32.

The bow was tied using my Bow Easy.
