Papertrey Ink MIM #150

Good afternoon fellow crafters! Can you believe it is already the last day of January?! The month has just disappeared! I am so happy it is Friday though, I am beyond ready for the weekend!

This week over at Papertrey Ink, Melissa Phillips has challenged us to make a window screen card. I didn't think I would have time to participate in the challenge this week, but I did have some extra time this morning to whip up this 4x4 square Valentine's Day Card!

This is the first time I used the PTI Polka Dot Parade #11 Stamp Set and the little Owl is just too cute! I used the Harlequin Harlequin Cover Plate die for my "window screen" and placed that on top of some scrap Valentine Paper. I colored my tree branch and leaves using American Crafts Stamp markers, and stamped my owl with Stampin Up ink colors. I used the Limitless Layers 2¼" Circle dies, and a Recollections. Valentines cling stamp from Michaels for the red hearts.

I also wanted to share with you this card I made for the January Blog hop but didn't get to post in time :( I used the Cupid's Arrow stamp Set for this card along with a Hero Arts Valentine sentiment.

I have to be at work in 45 minutes and still need to get ready, so I will see you all next time. Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
