Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I've been absent for a while, but my festival is over and I'm getting my energy back and my head out of the wine and food sand!  Here's a snapshot of a small portion of the festival:

I was fortunate to participate in Michelle Mach's Valentine Challenge.  The idea is to get us beaders to step outside our creative box, and get creative with a different medium.  Michelle sent each participant one of her embossed cards (which are so gorgeous by the way, I barely wanted to embellish it at all!), and the challenge was to decorate it.

Here is my card:

And if you have a moment, check out all the other participants on her blog - the results were beautiful and unique and really fun to see!

I'll be catching up more, later this week!


  1. Oh how busy you have been. That card is awesome!

  2. I'm glad the festival went well, Amy. And, I'm sorry we weren't able to get there on Sunday. Life intervenes sometimes :(. Your card is beautiful! I love what you did with it. Hope to see you soon at Bead Soup.

  3. You did a beautiful job on the card with the muted background and those sparkly red hearts. Thanks for joining the challenge! (And I really am sorry I left you off the list initially. A total accident on my part!)

  4. How creatively beautiful! I love what you did to this card!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
