A Sexy Valentine and a DT call

Hello All,

It is so nice to be writing to you all tonight, for every minute spent here is one less minute I am logged on to the work laptop.

It's time for a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow and our theme is

Valentine's Day OR Red or Black

We are also having a DT call, as the lovely Angel has stepped down. If you want to join us on the Design Team, please visit the challenge blog to find out how.

For my DT card I chose to make a Valentine's Day card using my brand new (and very sexy) digi stamp from Kenny K. This is "Sexy Cupid" and isn't she just?

She was coloured with copics and then the edges were sponged with Versa Colour "Sky Blue" ink. I've glitzed up her wings with some KindyGlitz glitter glue. The sentiment was a freebie (and as usual I have no idea where I got it). My DP is "Crazy Love Fudge and Flowers" from Bo Bunny and the ribbon and jewels are from my stash. The swirl is once again from my Magnolia Doohickey die - this die is going to get a workout!

I made this card for a colleague for her husband. I expect I might be making a few more like it before Valentine's Day arrives. My DH and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, but this year I am making him a goofy card that suits us to a tee. Expect to see it in the next week or so.

Make sure you visit Ruby's Rainbow and see what my teammates have created for you. There's such a lovely array of inspiration awaiting you. :)

Also entered into the following challenges:
