One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

January 2013 Blog Hop

The Challenge for this month's PTI Blog Hop is BLACK BACKGROUND!
I made a designer strip using the medallions stamps with pure poppy and raspberry fizz ink on white paper.  I bordered it with pure poppy paper.  My squares are cut from the Take Three Die in white and raspberry fizz paper.  I heat embossed the heart from Tag-Its' # 12.  The other sentiment is from With All my Heart.  I think black lends itself really well to the reds and bright pinks and works so well for valentine cards!  This was a fun challenge and I may be using more of Black for a background!


  1. I love these embossed hearts and how you arranged them. So nice!

  2. This is a great Valentine card. Great job.

  3. Lovely cards, Colleen! Like te striking effect of the bold colors against the black.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
