Today's the day!

Good morning everyone!

What an exciting day!

is issuing their very first challenge today!

Think Valentines Day!

All you need to do is grab a collage set from Heather's Etsy
make whatever your heart desires,
with a Valentine's theme,
 then come back and link up at My Artistic Adventures first challenge!
Easy Peasy!

I'm on the DT and have made a couple of things to inspire you.

I might have gotten a little carried away snapping up a bunch of Heather's beautiful collage collections but I couldn't help myself!
Wait till you see them, you'll want them all too!
(I have a link to all the collage sheets I used within my post)

I started with a tag from the

More glitter, on the hearts edges and around the focal (Thank You sentiment).

Once I saw the Alpha focals I knew I wanted to make banners for my granddaughters,
 who love when I make things to hang on their walls,
 so this is the first one of 4 that I will be making.
I started with the hearts from the
collage sheet
 A closeup below of one of the hearts & alpha focal pieces...
more glitter!

Below is a combo Birthday/Valentines Day card for my niece.
I used the 
 Here is a close up of the pug.
I topped him with glossy accents.
You can also see I broke out the glitter again! 

And last...
This is what happens while I'm waiting for glitter & glue to dry...
 I use leftover pieces from the 
and a couple of the 
Conversation Heart bases were cut for the base.
