Shabby Valentine

Good morning my friends, and it really is morning.  I'm getting this posted before I go off to work. I have a few cards this week to show you. I had a very productive weekend including cleaning out the pantry. Ugh! Why do I buy some things since they just get trashed 6 months later when I don't use them?

On Splitcoaststampers (SCS) I belong to a group called Girls of the Baker's Dozen Monthly Challenge. So every month one of the members puts together a kit and sends it out to all the rest of the members. From the title, you may be able to figure out that this swap "year" there are 13 of us. I am usually always behind, but was able to get caught up finally.  My first card to share was from the January kit sent out by Roxie (morgainegeiser).  She sent us Valentine images and some shabby chic embellishments.

Except for the flowers, card base and mats, everything was sent in the kit.
Materials Used:
Image - CC Designs
Cardstock - SU Whisper White and Kraft
Designer Paper - Marthat Stewart (used a piece for the sentiment)
Accessories - Ribbon - Michael's; burlap bow - Recollections; Large Flower - Recollections; Sweetheart blossoms - Wild Orchid Crafts
Copic Markers - E00, E11, E21; E23, E27, E29; E31, E33, E35; R24, R27, R37; R81, R83, R85; Y15, Y23

See you back tomorrow for another post.
