Here are my cards for this hop....using this set for Valentine and Thank You themes...



This shadow box card  is sized the same as an A2 card (4.25 x 5.50). Used the sentiment from GKD's set Sweetest Memories and the boat couple is from the GKD's Eclectic Summer set. 
Kept it very simple!! stamped the Festive Frame with Memento's Black, cut out the center oval. Then stamped the couple also with MB onto white cardstock. The water is done with SU watercolor crayons, masked the couple and sponged sky with SU Regal Rose, Saffron and Rose Red. Adhered them to inside of card. Using ScorPal adhesive tape - joined the sides together. Colored the flowers with Copics R20 and R22 and pieced them onto card. and last, added sentiment stamped in Memento's Rhubarb.


just used various blue designer paper, cuttlebug folder (candy cane), shading with Copics,  paper pieced flowers and used sentiment from GKD's Thanks a Million, added blue mini pearls to flowers...


stamped again onto designer paper and colored in with SU marker, used nestie and sponged edges.... sentiment from All Night Media...

so this set isnt just for Christmas :)
enjoy the rest of the hop!

HAPPY NEWYEAR!!
  wishing everyone good health and a prosperous New Year- keeping our focus on our Lord and Savior - Jesus Christ!!
