"LOVE IS IN THE AIR"

Hello everyone!
We, along with so many others in the USA are experiencing the cold, cold temps.
Waking up with temperatures in the single digit numbers does not make me a happy camper.  As a matter of fact, as cold as it is here, I wouldn't be camping outside not unless it was an extreme emergency and I mean an extreme emergency.
I'm thankful to have a warm cozy house to be out of the frigid weather but I'm also praying that all those individuals who live on the streets, in the park, under bridges and in their vehicles would accept a warm room in a shelter somewhere.
Many crafters are getting ready for "heart month".  We are getting those cards ready for Valentine's Day.  I'm making cards to send to the soldiers.  My contact person is eagerly waiting for my supply.  I'm not as ready as I thought I would be.
This card is not for my "cards for soldiers" box.  I've included jewelry pieces on the end of  the heart which makes it too bulky for an envelop.  It is one of those special cards that will go to someone to be hand delivered.  I will make a special box to put it in.





Enabler's List:
white cardstock for card base and top layer  is from PaperandMore; black cardstock is from Recollection; pattern paper between the card base and the black cardstock is from Graphic 45 Fairie Dust pad.  Small pieces from Recollections Mixed Media pad were used behind the circles. Cork cardstock
embossing folder used on top layer is from TODO called Damask Embossing Folder. A light dusting of Distress wilted violet Oxide was used on top of the raised embossed area.
dies used: Spellbinders standard circles , Spellbinders heart dies and Sizzix Mixed Media #3
embellishments: Prima and Recollections Flowers; butterfly from K& Company ephemera; heart cut from cork cardstock...black pitt pen to used to go around the edge and white chalk pen to write the word "LOVE". Three pieces of jewelry were twisted together and adhered behind the heart.

What about you?  Do you feel the "love" floating around you?  I hope you do.

Thanks for viewing and sharing your time with me today.  Come again  to see my creation.
