Get Inky Valentine's Challenge

     It's my first official 2014 post for Get Inky Challenges, and the inspiration is Valentine's/Love.  If you read the Get Inky blog you'll know…I don't usually make Valentine's cards as I like the sappy poems on the store bought ones.  
     I had a purse shaped gift card holder that I'd never used and thought it was perfect for this.  I used the stitched square and heart from Get Inky to make my embellishment. 
     I originally thought I was going to use several hearts in many colors so I wanted to share a tip with you.  While at Walmart I went to the paint department and picked up a paint strip sample in the shades of pink I wanted.  It would have been perfect for many heart as they all would have been graduated in the same family.  I'm sure I'll use that idea somewhere else in the future.
     Will you be joining the challenge this week?  If so, I can't wait to see what you create.  


  1. Very cute Lynn. I have often thought about getting the paint strip samples. I saw some great ideas on Pinterest. TFS

    1. Thank you Shalana. I kind of felt guilty about it at first since I didn't buy any paint, but then thought about how much money we spend there anyway!
