Child's Valentine Card and WINNER!!

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a great day!! I have a winner to announce for my Cricut cartridge giveaway!! But first, I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges...and since I'm giving away a Space Party cart, I thought I'd make my card a space theme!!


The challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut is to make a Valentine card for a child and use the colors red, white and pink. All of the paper is from Core'dinations. The rocket is from Just Because Cards, and I welded the shadows together to make the base of the card. I embossed the red with Swiss Dots and the gray with a folder I have no idea what it is called. It has groups of three dots.


The cute little astronaut is from Life's A Party. I cut him at 2". He is embossed with the Sizzex Diamond embossing folder. I used my Gypsy to cut a hole in the mask so I could stamp the adorable Peachy Keen face, from the PK-754 Critter Faces set. I added a heart from George and Basic Shaes and popped it up with foam tape.


I attached the little astronaut with a homemade wobble or wiggle wire! The inspiration for this was from my dear friend Amy of Love to Crop! If you haven't seen it yet, Amy created a fabulous tutorial on how to make your own wiggle wires! Click HERE to see the tutorial! And then, after you make your own, she has a challenge going on right now on her blog...click HERE to link up your wiggle wire project!!


I used Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress ink. "I love you all the way to the moon & back" is from K Andrew Designs It's Valentines stamp set! I just love this set...there are so many great sentiments and not just for Valentine's day!! You can use this set all year long!! Aren't the lips awesome??!!

Click HERE to purchase your own set or to see the entire line of K Andrew Designs stamps!!

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

And now for the winner of the Cricut Space Party cartridge!!


I used Random.org to choose, and it chose as the winning number..............

And comment #46 is...................................................................................................
