February 1st already!  My son just celebrated his 100th day of school, which I guess is a big deal in our school district because when I dropped him off the teachers had decorations all over the place!  Well Valentine's day is a big deal here in my house.  I love to sit and have my little ones make their Valentine cards to hand out and send off.  Here's a card I created using a Pure Innocence stamp set from MFT stamps.  I used patterned papers from October Afternoon.  I followed a sketch by MFT.  The color combination of Red, Pink, and Lt. blue is the color story from CR84FN.  I added some scalloped circles behind the image but other than that I stuck to the sketch.  The image was paper pieced and colored with Copics.  I tied some seam binding and adhered a button to the center, and the little banner was hand cut.  I just love the Pure Innocence line.  This little girl reminds me of my own little one. Well I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for stopping by.
