Flopsey Valentine

Boy was I tired last night..after chaperoning a dance at my dd's school Friday night and then having 8 kids at our house for my son's 6th birthday party yesterday---yipes! My husband thought it would be a good idea to unwind with a nice movie--so he purchased DARK KNIGHT. Well, for those of you who have seen it, you know that it is not a relaxing movie at all. After the moview was over--my hands were clammy from being so anxious! Oh well--at least he let me sleep in today!

Here is a little card I squeezed in during my daughter's nap. Seems like crafting time is very limited these days but -- 'tis the season!

This card features the new Snow Bunny Flopsey image from My Favorite Things--CUTENESS!

I stamped the image and then cut it out and colored the bunny part. I then cut out a section where the hot chocolate mug was so that I could turn this into a cute Valentine. I punched a heart and slid it right into his arms. I popped the top half of his body up over his legs to make it a bit more realistic.

My favorite part of this card is the Flower Soft that I used on his hat, scarf and gloves. At first, I was hesitant to use it on this image because I didn't know if I could get it to adhere to such a small area. But it worked and it was simple. I love the texture it adds.

The sentiment is from the MFT set called Hearts Galore.

Materials used: Stamps- Snow Bunny Flopsey, Hearts Galore (My Favorite Things); cardstock- Pure Luxury white (Gina K Designs); riding hood red, bordering blue (SU!); Memento tuxedo black ink; real red stamp pad (SU!); Copic markers; heart punch (SU!); Sizzix heart die; Flower soft (blue); Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval nestabilities; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Snowflake embossing folder (Provocraft); lace ribbon; button (Making Memories); liquid applique (Marvy); dimensionals (SU!)

Love the card; very cute!

Now...about that movie. Oh help me; occasionally we allow our children to see PG-13 movies with us...yep; I was dumb enough to take them to this one. OK, I'm one really dumb mom sometimes. They loved it but I was RAVING that the movie should be rated R when we left!!!! OH MY GOSH...

K, 'nuf of that, but I'm sure you get my point. :D
