PHEW!! I finally made it! I was able to get caught up with some DTC stuff and get my card posted!! This week at Sew Many Challenges, our challenge was to make a Valentine's themed project using the colors Red, Black & Silver. I know the hearts look grey, but I tried everything to bring a silver look to them...hopefully I passed a little bit lol So anyways, I made an 'envelope' to give to my hubby for Valentine's. It has a Golf Gift card inside.

I hope you'll join us this week over at Sew Many Challenges. Don't have an image, don't worry!! You can find some awesome images at the Sew Many Cards shop and we have a Freebie Friday Image posted over at Sew Many Challenges also!

Awesome work Jeri. Not only do I love the design but those extras (like stitching on the envelope, stickles, etc.) add so much. Good job with those copics and the bling - well you just gotta love that bling. LOL
