Valentine's Day ~ 2009; Creative Belli Challenge #83


Good Wednesday morning everyone!!  It's time for another Belli Challenge and this week it's Hearts of anykind..  What a perfect challenge for some Valentine's Day Cards!!  We also have some new faces on our Design Team so please check out their beautiful work.  AND our Guest Designer for this week is Christine Nay, so please check out her cute Valentine's Day Card, too.
I made a layout for this challenge using photos from last year.  Savannah is 3 1/2 and little sweet Colten is 2 months.  The "BIG APE" was a gift from my DH 2 years ago.  But instead of just giving him to me, he stuck it in my truck on the passenger side one morning as he left for work.  Well, when I went out to put my things in my

truck, all I could see was a silhouette and I actually thought someone was sitting in my truck..  Oh man, was I scared.  I was there by myself and there was someone sitting in my truck..  Well, we laugh at it now, but I told him not to do that again!! lol  Anyway the grandkids looove to play with this guy so around Valentines I bring him out and they have a blast with him.  He's so big, soft, and cuddly that they just lay on him while they watch movies. 
I also did this layout for a few other challenges:
Creative Belli Blog Challenge ~ Hearts
Practical Scrappers ~ Sketch Friday
Creative Card Crew~ Punch It ~ Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch
Simon Says ~ Punch It
Crafty Creations ~ Valentines or Love
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Fancy edges or corners
The Crafty Pad ~ At least 1 animal
Humble Pie ~ At least 2 blingy things
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Lots of Layering
Your Next Stamp Challenge ~ Anything that Sparkles
And here's what I used :
Doodlebug Designs Beetle Black Crushed Velvet
Red Hearts Shiny Paper
Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch
QuicKutz ~ Flourish ~ Cookie Cutter Die
Pink Pearlized Texture Paper ~ Framed the photos, you can't see this very well.
Sticko Letters
Thickers ~ Jewelry Box ~ Black Numbers
Me & My Big Ideas ~ Soft Spoken Chipboard  ~ Love
Ribbon
Red Sugar Coated Bling ~ corners
Thanks so much for dropping by, and please check out the wonderful projects the Belli DT (Anne, Ceal, Chris, Debbie, Holly, Jenny, Joan, Joy, Liz, Maria, Robin and Steph) came up with, and this weeks Guest DT Christine Nay.. Now let's see what you come up with, and be sure and upload your project to Mr. Linky so that we can all see!!
