Sprinkle a Little Love - CYS

Good morning my friends. Happy Tuesday. It's a bit on the cold and rainy side today here in H Town. I'll be going out in a bit to spend some time at my church building. Last Friday there was a horrific explosion of a manufacturing company close by where my church building is located. One of our members had her home severely damaged by the blast and over 200 other families were also affected in the area. The blast was felt by some living a half an hour away. Our building also suffered some minor damage, but nothing structurally. The Red Cross is using it this week as a staging place for people to come to who need to get assistance and a couple people from our church need to be in the building while they are there. I and another lady will be there today from 10-2. We don't have to do anything, just be a presence in the building. Please pray for those who were affected and will have to be out of their homes for some months while they are being repaired.

That being said, I do have a card to share with you today. This is for the monthly Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month one of the members chooses a theme for the month and we all make a card to go along with the theme using only items from our stash. No new things can be used. Our hostess for this month was Laurajean and her them was Sprinkle a Little Love. So perfect with Valentine's Day coming up. I was talking to a friend recently about card making and we were discussing how we can make cards to send to our other lady friends. They don't always have to be for a love interest. I used all the elements of a Valentine's Day card, but made the sentiment so it could be sent to anyone for any reason.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Bildlamarna - Tossa with Falling Hearts
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Sprinkle of Love
  • Card Stock - Stampin Up - Pink Pirouette; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - CC Designs - Smoochie Paper Pad
  • Accessories - Doily and ribbon - my stash
  • Copic Markers - E30, E31, E33, E35; E50, E51, E53; R00, R14, R24, R37; R81, R83, R85; T10
That's it for today.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Every time I see anything about Houston on the news I think of you. I'm glad you weren't affected, but my heart goes out to those who were. Your Valentine is darling, Maggie! I only have one sweetheart, but I love Valentines, so I need this kind to send to friends. Last year I made and sent a bunch, this year I've made only one so far and the day is almost upon us. What a sweet sample you're sharing today!

  2. A gorgeous card Maggie - love the image, and as you say, it can be sent to a friend for any time of the year, or as a 'just because' card

  3. Maggie, this is soooo cute! Love that darling image!

  4. I love this card idea- yes, perfect for a friend or a loved one too! Adorable image and love the sweet and pretty doily!
