Happy Friday Everyone!!  I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend as much as I am!!  Today is a busy day for me in blog land.  I will have two posts for you today.  This is my first one.

After taking a short break for the Holidays, Wags N Whiskers is back with a new challenge!!!  This week's challenge is "Valentines!"

Don't forget the Wags n Whiskers challenge is now open. Anyone can play along and you DO NOT need to use a Wags 'n Whiskers image.

Each challenge we have two prizes:
One random participant will win a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of their choice.

Any entry using a Wags 'n Whiskers image on their card will be entered into a drawing for a W'nW Digital stamp of their choice!!

Therefore, anyone who uses a Wags 'n Whiskers image will be entered into both prizes of a rubber stamp and a digital stamp!!

The only requirements are that you link directly to your challenge project - not to the main page of your blog. You must have a new project (no back linking) and you must link your card to the challenge post.
If you do not have a blog, you can still enter the challenges by uploading your cards to an open gallery such as Splitcoaststampers.
For my creation... I decided to use the image He Loves Me (one of my faves illustrated by Crissy Armstrong).  This is available as a digi or as a rubber stamp here. 
Rather than make a card, I thought I would send some of my friends bookmarks...they are more functional and fun.
The image is colored with copics.  The image and sentiment panel are cut out with the Spellbinders Heart dies.  The sentiments and quote are computer generated. The ribbon is new sparkly white velvet ribbon I received from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Isn't it gorgeous with all the sparkle!! If you haven't checked out Bonnie's  Really Reasonable Ribbon store, you should...Wow...her selection is incredible (and no I am not a dt member..just a customer)

If you should join this challenge, please link your creation here.
