It's Tiddly Tuesday and our theme is Valentine!

Good morning (or evening as it is here in NZ)!  It's Tiddly Tuesday again and we have a new challenge theme for you this fortnight!  We had some fabulous entries into our last challenge!  It was very inspiring to see how everyone interpreted the colour challenge!  

Our challenge to you this fortnight is to create a special Valentine project in plenty of time for Valentine's Day!

Head over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog to get some fabulous inspiration from my fabulous teamies!

For my card, I decided to use Little Bear:

The papers I have used are from Crate Paper, Simple Stories, and My Mind's Eye I think.  The ribbon is from my stash and the brad is from My Mind's Eye.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  I have coloured Little Bear with copics (see details below).

Here's a close-up of Little Bear:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge Blog: I {heart} you
Paper Sundaes #105: Valentines
The Crafty Pad: Valentine/Anniversary

That's all from me for now!  I'm heading off for a lovely catch up dinner with some friends I haven't seen for a year!

How do you do it! I love your paper placing, you make it look so effortless. I want to copy your style, but always end up with mish mosh randomness. ;D

Hope you are enjoying your trip. My puter decided it needed a break so my apologies for being sooooo late in commenting.
