You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Here's Cupid

At Bitten by the Bug 2 the challenge is to include a cupid or a heart.  This gave me a reason to use the Cupid Bear in Teddy Bear Parade.  These bears are so cute!

A little bit of vintage photo distress ink helps to accent the cuts.  I used the Phrases cartridge to create the hearts.  I used the same one, 1/2 inch difference, on floral paper and white, then added the word 'love' from the same cartridge.  I'm using these corners a lot lately; I like their design and they make a nice filler.  They come from the Picturesque cartridge.  A couple of rhinestones from my stash and it was done.  I like the delicate look it has.

I am entering this card in Bitten by the Bug 2 (include a cupid or heart) and My Craft Spot (For your sweetheart).

Be sure to visit both challenges to see all the entries.

Happy Creating.
