Triple Play Valentines Day

What do you do when you can't get a plan for this year's Christmas cards? Make a Valentines Day one, of course! This one came literally "came to me" this morning.

The best thing about this card is it can be entered in all of the following challenges:

Mojo Monday (2nd Challenge Card)
OWH Valentine Love
Heart2Heart Metal Mania
Divas by Design - Metal
One Stop Craft Challenge - 3
You Had Me at Craft - Anything
Make it Monday - Anything

All paper and stamps are CTMH. I used some old and some new. The bear is OLD, but he's still one of my all-time favorites. Current stamps are from Just the Ticket and Love Live. The paper is also discontinued CTMH: Vintage Travel.
The metal pieces are from CTMH. The one holding the tickets and heart is called Foundry and is still current. The hinge is discontinued. The Baker's twine (Cherry Cobbler) and the embossing folder are both from Stampin' Up!

I colored with Copics and used Momento Rich Cocoa to stamp the bear and sponge all the edges.

I wish the pictures did this justice. I haven't loaded Picasa on my new laptop yet, so I don't have the ability to fix the photos much. He's really cute in person.

Well, even though I haven't solved my Christmas card dilemma (see earlier post), at least I got something done that makes me smile.

In other news, I can't seem to turn my internal editor off, so my writing is proceeding at a snail's pace. Terribly demotivating. But...I have finished through the first half of chapter 12. When I do get my internal editor turned off, the writing is sloppy. Also terribly demotivating. What was I thinking? Oh well, time to get back to work. Chapter 12b, here I come!

Until next time,
