Valentine cards galore and my latest venture!

I am continuing my love fest with more Valentine cards! My first card uses the the cutest image from Jane whom I am proud to announce has asked me to join her design team! Yeah! I am Doodle girl! 
 I love her work and I am looking forward to working with her.  This first card is for the new #46 challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge.  We are currently looking for another design team member to join us.  Check the details out here


I used Jane's Love Rocket.   More paper piecing.  I copied the image onto My Mind's Eye papers and then cut out pieces to accent.  I used foam dots to give some depth.  The hearts are filled in with Stickles.  I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the white paper for added texture.  The sentiment is a rub-on from Making Memories. 
Challenges for card:
Bunny Zoe's: Love is in the air
Creative Cowgirls: Love is in the air
Flourishes: Valentine
Paper Playtime: digi
Paper Sundaes: Valentine's
Penny's Paper Crafty: Hearts a Flutter
My second card is for Crafty Creations challenge that the lovely Claire set which is based on Robert Burns poem, Red, Red Rose.  I chose to take a verse and make that the main focus of my card.
I did change the spelling of the word love. 
A Red, Red Rose




Oh my luve is like a red, red rose,

That's newly sprung in June:

Oh my luve is like the melodie,

That's sweetly play'd in tune.



As fair art thou, my bonie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

Till a' the seas gang dry.



Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi' the sun;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

While the sands o' life shall run.



And fare thee weel, my only luve!

And fare thee weel a while!

And I will come again, my luve,

Tho' it were ten thousand mile!



Robert Burns
Hope this will inspire you to come and join us for the challenge!  Also stop by and see Claire's art nouveau stamps she designed!
I had some scraps that I used on this card.  Not sure whom the manufacturers are.  I believe the polka dot is My Mind's Eye. The cardstock is Bazzill. 
Challenges for my card are:

Crafty Creations:  Red, red rose
Creative Craft World: love card challenge
Delicious Doodles: Spots ( just found this blog and they have lots of cute digis!)
I Did it Creations!: red
Scrapbook Sisters: red, red, red

Thanks for stopping by!
