A different take on Valentine's...

Hey there!

So did you love Glee last night? I adored it... it was one of those episodes that had me so hooked I was surprised when it ended and I felt like it should still have at least another half hour to go. The Warblers were in top form and Kurt and Blaine are way too cute but Santana kinda stole the show for me. Love to see some of the other kids stepping up into the spotlight and into more story lines. :)

Ok, Glee break over... LOL... it's a new Wednesday and a new challenge over at All That Scraps and with Valentine's day almost upon us of course we had to do a Valentine challenge. But hold on just a second... there is a twist! Yep, there is a restriction and it is that you CAN'T USE any RED or PINK on your Valentine!

My-oh-my what is a girl to do? Well, for me that meant going straight to my "go-to" color of choice... orange! Luckily for me I had this great orange paper with hearts buried in my stash. ;)
Then I made sure to reinforce the heart theme with the border punch and sticker. I also pulled out this classic Sweet November Fairy Sweet, Chanter Heartsong, and was happy to show her some inky love for this card... I can never resist giving her orange hair, LOL!

Now it's your turn to make a non-traditional Valentine and be sure to use a stamp sold in the All That Scraps store if you would like a shot at the prize. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link your creation with Mr Linky by 10 pm est next Tuesday, and only one entry per person please.

Toodles! :)
