Please Be Mine, Valentine...Just Us Girls Challenge #426~Word Prompt: LOVE

Hello,

Still in the process of unwinding from my two week *working* visit at my mom's...missing her and my niece and nephew but, I have a bunch of NBUS goodies that arrived during my absence (how *ever* did that happen...tee hee), so sorting through, organizing and, of course, playing, will keep me busy.

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #426~Word Week, where our delightful and talented Bobby has selected LOVE as our prompt. Fantastic choice...and yes, I am making Valentine goodies for my niece and nephew's classmates!


As mentioned in my previous post, Neat and Tangled's My Favourite Nut has been sitting in my NBUS collection for quite a while and, once I got started playing with the adorable squirrels and acorns...well, I perhaps went a 'nuts' in colouring them up.  These little cuddling critters, nestled in their cozy acorn, are distress ink water-coloured; Uniko Scattered Polka Hearts in the background. Lovey-dovey, right?


We're excited for Tenia, from Jazzy Paper Designsis joining us  as our February GD, with an card we know you'll "Lurve"!  My teammates have some incredible inspiration happening, too; please drop by their places and leave them a comment to brighten their day: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.

Excited to see your love-themed cards in the gallery!
Thank you for dropping by!

Welcome home, Carol! So glad you had a good time (as good as you could have, after working all day) with your mom and niece and nephew. I'm sure it feels wonderful to be home, too. Oh golly, this adorable. Your coloring is great and those little squirrels are so sweet. Terrific Valentine card. Good luck with your Valentine project for your niece and nephew. I know it's going to be great! Hugs!

These two are super adorable! Your card is proof that a Valentine's card doesn't need to be red, pink, or purple, something I always forget.
