Showers Of Love - CBC1

Hello and happy Saturday. Thank you so much for all your entries in the Alota blog candy i posted yesterday on my site. Those two new sets are really wonderful :-)
As you probably noticed for my cards this week i have picked several older images to make my Valentines cards. I spoke with Carole and Bea how much i always loved this Tilda with umbrella :-) first of all isn't she CUTE lol.. second ... she fits perfectly inside the Nestabilities because she is smaller than the newer images, third this image can be used for so many occasions, I like her for Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Get Well, "Feeling under the Weather", Spring cards and as my sample card Valentines. I used the little tiny heart punch outs that were created from my Mini Hearts Martha Stewart border punch. I added some glue to the card and picked the heart up with a thin needle and placed it on the spot i wanted it to be.

I used the little tiny heart punch outs that were created from my Mini Hearts Martha Stewart border punch. I added some glue to the card and picked the heart up with a thin needle and placed it on the spot i wanted it to be. I don't know if it shows on the close up picture - there is Paper Glaze on her hand and on the ground (must have to glue things down or for Spring :-) - the flowers have stickles on them. For a moment i was considering hot pink flowers but i wanted to keep the colors muted, so the umbrellas on the Designer paper would show more.

If you like this stamp as much as Carole, Bea and i do - please take a peek on their sites to see what they came up with. If you have this stamp - feel yourself challenged too :-) you can link your card here on my blog. Next week sweet Carole will set a challenge. oh and we have a name for this challenge too ……..CBC1 Challenge…… :-0)
Love and hugs
Claudi
