10 Minute Craft Dash #11

Howdy! We are rolling right on through the week, tomorrow is Valentine's Day.. the weekend is almost here.. it is good! Do you have any big plans? We are just going to spend a quiet weekend in. I enjoy cooking for Valentine's Day, so I am going to whip up a new recipe I found in this month's Food Network magazine. Conversation heart cookies are on tap for tonight, too... if you follow me on Instagram you will get a peek, I'm sure :)

Anyway... today I am sharing a little something for this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash. We're up to #11, and this time we have a theme challenge:

Here is my card, completed in 9 minutes and 26 seconds:

I gathered up the little heart stamps from each of the four different Pretty Patches sets that Wplus9 has (Apple, Christmas, Pumpkin, and Tree). Before I started my card, I lined all four of the hearts up on my acrylic block (is that cheating?) so that I could just repeat the stamping process. I used four different ink colors and just stamped the hearts across the front of my card, using the negative space between hearts and the grid lines on my acrylic block to line things up.

I added a glittered die cut word, completely inspired from this month's Cloud9 Hop (I'm looking at you, Erin). The 'You' sentiment to complete the phrase is from Cupid's Arrow. Not sure how I feel about that there, but that is the beauty of this challenge.

So there you have it - fun times! If you'd like to join the challenge, you still have a few days left. If you've never given the 10 Minute Craft Dash a try, you should!
