Hiya!  I've got a bunch of Valentine's Day cards that I've been creating and will be sharing with you over this next week. I love making things for Valentine's Day... something about the reds and pinks and purples all together makes me really swoon (not to mention conversation heart candies...yum!) and this card is no exception:

This little Pure Innocence sweetie is one I recently purchased from My Favorite Things.  I stamped her with peach ink onto a die-cut watercolor paper panel and watercolored her with Distress Ink markers, a paintbrush, and water.  I paper-pieced her clothes with paper from the same pack I used on the background (an older Recollections Valentine's Day Cardstock pack).

I heat embossed the sentiment in white on the lower panel, tied it all up with some twine and a button and she was ready to give her hugs away!

I (loosely) followed the current sketch from My Favorite Things:

I'm linking her up to the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting!
