My heart seemed full as it could hold

I’ve got a little banner to share today featuring the gorgeous A Heart for You Rio from Simply B Stamps.

And here’s a close-up of the beautiful image.

It’s a Valentine banner, but you guessed that right?  I’ve used dies from the December Club La-La Land kit as well as the idea for the banner from the included project.  I love the dies in these kits they are just awesome.

Given the theme of my banner I am entering it in the current challenge over at Creative Corner.  It is going to form part of the decorations of an office for Valentine’s Day, I’m turning the office into the “tunnel of love” in revenge for the occupant (a male manager at work) covering my desk with glitter balls for Christmas.  As a crafter I’d never inflict glitter on someone’s workspace, I’m still trying to get the glitter off so he must pay and what better way than having to work in an office decorated like the tunnel of love?!

My project is clearly not a card so I’m also entering it in current challenge at C.R.A.F.T. challenges.  Love to Scrap is running a challenge asking you to use at least one item starting with an initial of their name.  I have “L” covered with the word love, “T” for twine, “S” for sentiment and “B” for blossoms.  I almost had a clean sweep but I just couldn’t think of anything starting with “C” to add to my banner.
