Hi there! Thanks for visiting today.  We have been in the midst of a true winter deep freeze, here.  It looks like we are finally getting out of the -35 or colder temperatures that we’ve been having for the last week.  Toughens a person up, that’s for sure.  But, truthfully, if you know how to bundle up properly, it isn’t that bad, as long as you’re smart. 🙂  But enough of the weather talk, lol.  Today, I have an inspiration card for the current challenge in the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group.  Our theme (which is the same as on the Challenge Blog), is Valentines Day/Love/For Someone Special.  There are a ton of lovely images that correspond with this theme in the Etsy store!!  I have used a beautiful mermaid from THIS set for my card.  I went totally against my “grain” and colored the image, using Copics, in pastel shades – I rarely go the pastel route!!  I then layered everything up with more pastel shaded papers.  I made a poofy mauve bow, and popped a die cut “love” into the center.  A scattering of hearts sprinkled on the background finish this card off 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
