limeLIGHT project reveal

Good morning girls! I hope you've had a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by today to see my February limeLIGHT Papercrafts Project!

I totally ran out of time at Christmas to make a couple of my friend's a gift so I thought this would be a great chance to make one of them since the challenge was a Valentine's Day Gift and Card for a friend.

For this challenge I made my friend Debby a holder for the stamped images that I know she has. I so appreciate Debby's advice about kids and the easy way I can talk to her. She also loves to volunteer and has great ideas for the Children's Ministry at my church. Anyway, I started with one of Lauren's templates, added patterned papers from the Bittersweet collection, some of the lovely Rose and Chocolate Pearls. I also used the Pink Shimmerz again. LOVE that stuff! Although you can't really see it well (so sorry about the pictures...I'm having a hard time getting a good picture recently) the Shimmerz is around the name plate on the front.

I used eight different Bittersweet papers on the inside of sleeves and then added white labels to each sleeve so that she can easily find the image that she is looking for. On the back I used the super cute sentiment called Chocolate Friends. And, since I used that cute sentiment I placed eight piece of Ghiradelli chocolate in the back sleeve.

The card has also been made with the Bittersweet papers and the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set called A True Friend. I added the super cute Bittersweet heart glazed brad to the middle of a flower to add a little oomph to the card. Again, I'm sorry for the picture...it stinks!

I hope that this project and the projects of the other limeLIGHT girls will inspire you to make something wonderful this Valentine's Day! Now, go...check 'em all out! (Links in my sidebar)
