Happy Valentine's Day Sweetie Pie

There's a bit of a change over at 365 Cards on Wednesdays!  We will be challenged to create cards based on a specific word.  For this first challenge, the word is "Sweet."  My first thought was candy or ice cream, but in the end, I decided to create a card with a sweet baby on it.  The focal image is from Gecko Galz.  The sentiment is Studio G.  This card is also for the newest challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is to create a project that reveals :"What You Are Known For."  This was a very soul searching challenge for me.  I have gone through many, many styles in my lifetime.  I have always had a deep appreciation and love for things vintage, and I love early modernism.  I love color but I love monochromatic too.  I love lace, ribbon, buttons and all embellishments.  The card above truly reflects me!  Thanks for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Well, red is my favorite color so this is a huge hit with me. Such a beautiful collection of charming vintage elements. And Anita is right, that is such a darling vintage image. The "sweetie pie" chit chat is just too perfect!

Hugs,
Linda
