Valentine Wreath...FMS 471


I only make a few Valentines each year and this year I decided to forgo the traditional red and white.  I am hooked on Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose!  We had a fabulous snowstorm this week so I managed to spend a full day cleaning out the craft room and getting organized for 2021 pandemic crafting as I have signed up for a few on line workshops during February and March.  We are in the midst of snow season so you will find me in front of the fireplace or upstairs in my craft room.  I do go out and walk every morning unless it is snowing - which it has been a lot this past week.  On those days shoveling is my exercise.  The Big Guy snowblows and I "clean up the edges" which means I just putter around in the snow for a while. The snowstorm we had yesterday traveled all the way across the country sharing the wealth in so many states!

I took this picture yesterday morning as I was "shoveling" out front.  The top room on the right is my craft room and right underneath that is the living room/fireplace room.  If I could just convince the Big Guy that the living room would be a perfect craft room I would have the best of both worlds!

Karren designed a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches - hope you join us!

The Paper Players have a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge this week.  I followed the diagonal - diecut, embossing, blue.

Such a sweet card! Love the colors! I agree with you on the craft room...who needs a living room anyway. ;) The snow is pretty...glad that I've mostly been looking at it from the inside! :)

So very sweet, Linda! LOve that darling wreath, and your sweet heart[s]!
You could just have the big guy put a fireplace in your craft room!

This is such a beautiful card. I really like the muted color choices, and that floral wreath is such a beauty. The woodgrain dry embossing sets everything off beautifully.

These colors are fabulous for a Valentine. So soft and lovely. And I'm so happy to hear how happy the snow makes you. I don't understand it, but I'm happy to hear it! LOL!

Linda, this card is gorgeous. I've never thought of putting these colors together, but they are beautiful. I love the texture from the embossing folder behind that wreath. Stunning, my friend. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week.
P.S. I can't understand why you haven't been approved to use the living room as your craft room :-)

This is such a gorgeous card Linda! I couldn't figure out how to incorporate that heart into mine but you nailed it! Loved that subtle colour combination! So pretty! Can't say I'm envious of the guys are welcome to keep it!

Karren said...

That colour combo is a total wow, as is your card! Love this wreath. But I'm afraid you can keep your snow... :)
