Valentine Card Using Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #46 Red And/Or Hearts.

Hi to everyone.  It has started feeling like spring here now with temperatures in the 70's.  I hope everyone is keeping warm and finding time to craft.  It has been a busy week taking mom to her Dr. appts and the dentist.  We stay busy when she comes to visit.  I think we need more down time.
It's time for a wonderful new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #46 - Red and/or Hearts. Our sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps and Kenny K downloads. If you want to be a guest designer; please add GDT behind your name when you post your card. 

We are thrilled to have two Guest Designers this week. Bunny Hoyle and Valerie (Valou). Click on their names to see all their beautiful creations on their blogs.  Be sure to check out the other members of DT as they have created some fabulous cards for you this week.

I have chosen a Digi stamp from Eureka Stamps - "Large Heart Puppy".  Isn't he adorable?  I loved this Digi the first time I saw it. 
The black and white damask paper is from our new CTMH Idea book called "For Always".  CTMH "For Always" paper pack includes several different patterns of paper and there are several accessories to match including our wonderful new material.  These and many other new paper packets and material will be available February 1st, 2013.  I can't wait for you to see what we have new in our Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book. 
I used the darling stamp set from CTMH "Whooo's Your Valentine" kit; which is only $10 with a $35 purchase through the end of January.  Retail is $40.  It contains supplies to make 12 boxes with treat tubes and a Valentine Stamp set.
I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut out the sentiment "Be Mine" on the outside and "Happy Valentine's Day" on the inside.  The Artiste has several die cuts for the holidays.  It is a fabulous cartridge.  Check out the Cricut Artiste Collection here.
