We ♥ You!

This time there's no monkeying around...unless you count my card! The Caardvarks crew posted its new challenge today called We {Heart} You. Just create a new card that includes hearts and enter the direct blog post or gallery upload info into our new Mr. Linky box at the 'Varks blog. The winner receives the February mini kit from CupCards {to go} kit club. Cards are due by midnight PST on February 17th.

My monkey card above features a stamp by Stampendous and the awesome Prismacolor Pencil and Gamsol technique as shared in this fabulous tutorial by friend (and Caardvarks owner) Jen Pohl. I also used some yummy paper from Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection. Details for this card are here.

My second card also uses BG Bittersweet but focuses on Mr. Romeo. He's from the new DCWV Go Green line which I discovered from my friend Patti. I added all the usual Jolene touches such as Cuttlebug embossing and sanding, Stickles, fiber and some more stamping. Details for this card are here. Who knew that Valentine's Day was for the critters, too?
