My Guest designer spot at DOUBLE CLICK CONNECTIONS...

Do you LOVE Skittles? I LOVE my skittles....I just think they really make the card...there are SO MANY beautiful colors of SKITTLES available over at:
AND, Carri now also has a challenge blog, and I am a GUEST DESIGNER for her for the month of February!
The challenge starting today is; TO USE A HEART-or several, like I did!
I had some conversation heart pieces in my stash that I added in the heart cutout areas, and then I also added sequins and SKITTLES in the other open areas....(I cut out the heart on my Explore, luckily I was able to go back and find it was Heart Doily from the
Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cartridge).

 I also used My Creative Times Stitched Sweetheart and xoxo dies and cut out the xoxo, and then cut it in half to add a piece to each bottom corner.
Have a great day, and I hope you get the chance to enter the challenge HERE.
***P.S.  Hint...Hint....come back next Wednesday,(Feb. 14th) as I am going to be adding some blog candy to my post!!***

Good morning! I am so LOVING this file that I used to make this card!!!  It is such a Fun/fantastic way to use up scraps....and that is great....because I have a ton of them!!
I have used the file:
I also used SKITTLES from Double Click Connections and an SU sentiment stamp. Little banner was inked around the edges, after hand cutting it out.

This set also comes with sentiments that can be placed in the hearts too!! So it is very versatile!
I hope you will get the chance to stop on over to THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG on Feb. 7th to check out the awesome line-up of DT projects themed for Valentines/Love inspiration!
Have a great week!
