Design Team Inspiration

Welcome new DT member Diane A!!!


About me:: I am retired and have been married for 47 years.   I started card making about thirteen years ago.   My passion is coloring animals for cards so expect to see lots of them!  I work mainly in Copics, pencils and pastels.  I am going to try to learn water coloring.  I also enjoy quilting, counted cross stitch, and cooking.

[Theme #22 requirements= 3 red hearts; sentiment expresses for 'mom' + cute pigs with hearts = love/Valentines]

What a cute little grassy scene for this mom's Valentine's card!!! I didn't ask Diane if the recipient has 3 children but that would be sweet if it was uniquely personalized. 

The coloring of the pigs and clouds are perfect! Diane's created a charming parent's Valentine's card!

DT member Willa Jean=

[Theme #22 requirements= 8 full heart shapes; colors, envelopes, puppy holding an envelope are elements that make me think Valentine's Day]

Isn't this a darling Valentine's card for a school-age child?!!! That notebook paper lined cardstock plus the patterned paper full of envelopes and hearts reminds me so much of the little love notes I carried back and forth across the school playground for my classmates!!! Do you like me? yes or no

The colors are cheerful and that little dog is a charmer on Willa Jean's child's Valentine's card!

DT and owner Becca S=

Parent (my mom's Valentine's was made for another blog, so this love bird is going to my last blood related Great Aunt, my maternal grandmother's last living sibling, who is 91+)

[Theme #22 requirements = 3 hearts, phrase 'true love'; colors, hearts, & flowers allude to Valentine's; my great aunt loves having indoor plants and has some bird feeders near her front door and also next to her bedroom window.]


Child (honorary granddaughter's 1st Valentine's; she's 9 1/2 months old!)

[Theme #22 requirements = 1 heart, letter charms spell 'love'; colors, heart, and flowers allude to Valentine's & 'your 1st' indicating a baby, also the large gold pin looks like the diaper pins used years ago for cloth diapers (for a very young child)]
