Finally, CCAYR challenge cards

Hi Everybody,

Well, I have finally finished my cards for the CCAYR challenge.  Since it is Valentines month, the challenge was to use a heart somewhere on the card. 

I started these cards right after the challege was announced and just finished them today.  I used a free digi from Beyond the Fringe Crafts.  I am adding a link to the actual digi here.  If you use digi stamps, you really should check out this site.  Carmen is a Canadian gal and she has a lovely site and the most delightful digis.  Thank you Carmen for all the digis I have downloaded from your site.
The cards I made are really straight forward.  I printed the digis, colored them, cut them out and used a black paper for matting.  I then found matching papers for the base and more matting paper.  Added some bling and/or glitter and I was done.  Oh, and amazingly, I only used one little piece of ribbon.   I do love to use ribbon. 
Not sure why it took nearly three weeks to finish these cards :-).

So, that is my post for today.  I hope you are all having a super weekend.  Mine has been good so far, except it is snowing.   Please, please, no more snow.  I NEED sping to come soon.

Happy Day to you all.
Theresa in Kitimat
