Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today’s card was inspired by two challenges. Festive Friday‘s Inspirational list was perfect for Valentine’s Day and I am also linking up with Retro Rubber Challenge where the theme is Love, Love, Love.
Anyone that follows me and my card-making journey knows that I love the make heart backgrounds so that is what I have done for you today. For Festive Friday, I chose Pink, Hearts, and Cute! I am not sure there is anything cuter than this MFT otter. For Red Rubber, I found out that this sweet otter set from MFT was released in 2017.
To go along with the name of my Blog and my love for using hearts on my cards, I asked hubby to make me a wooden ornament to use as a prop for photographing my cards. I love the way it came out. If you have never seen my hubby’s work I have his blog linked up for you HERE! At the top of his blog there are many tabs to make it a bit easier to navigate. He has a mix of everything…wood-working, colored pencil, wooden ornaments… etc. You must check out the wooden ornaments that he sells here locally they are amazing!
Card Details: The heart stencil background is from Honey Bee Stamps, the otter is from MFT, the speech bubble outline is from SU. I used Copics and a bit of Prismas colored pencils as my medium and dimensionals for height.
I hope you find some time to be creative, it really is helping me through these hard days! Nanc’

I love the card; the otter couldn’t be cuter, but I was equally impressed with David’s beautiful ornament and his art work on his blog! Two creatives in the same house! Awesome!
