Barb's Saturday Post - Say Cheese!

Hi Everybody!

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I found myself needing some fun, but quick-to-make cards for friends.

This time around I found inspiration in Fitztown's Cutie 8 image.

Anyone who's been my friend for more than five minutes, knows that my love of cheese is a fairly deep and enduring love. So, saying that I love them more than cheese is really saying a lot about how much I value their friendship! Just don't ask if I love you more than coffee... you'll only be facing disappointment. I have limits, y'know?

For this card, I simply added the sentiment before I printed out the image. Then I colored in everything with a combination of color pencils and pastels. I also gave it a little "bling" by doing the dots on the bow and the necklace with Liquid Pearls. To make the eyes look watery, I added a drop of clear glue.

For that small, extra touch, I used my heart punch before I adhered the completed image to my red cardstock.

For other craft tips and projects that I've done, please stop by my blog, In the Studio with Barb.

Thanks and happy crafting!

Hi, I'm Traci.
I have been crafting for many years where I enjoyed cross stitching and knitting. However, I was only introduced to card making 3 years ago and was instantly drawn in. This is definitely my addiction. I adore colouring to the point of obsession! The cards I make I donate to various animal charities. My aim for the future is to be part of a design team.
