Love and Hearts

Happy Valentine's Eve! Any last-minute valentines you still have to make? If so, you're in luck, as the latest Crafty Creations challenge is looking for crafts with love or hearts as their theme! This week's sponsor is Clearly Besotted Stamps. They are generously offering two terrific photopolymer stamp sets, Under the Sea and Funny Farm, to this week's winner. 
I of course still had some valentines to make. I needed a valentine suitable for a boy:



A love robot seemed perfect! And how could I not stamp him in shiny silver? The speech bubble heart is cut from a scrap of cardstock I had misted for another card. (I've decided the most successful way for me to use spray mist is to mist a large piece of cardstock then cut what I need from the best part.) 
I also wanted to send a valentine to a friend I haven't been in touch with for a while...



I do like how my blue jeans pocket turned out! The pinks come right out of the latest Pinspired challenge. I'm also throwing this into My Graphico's extended Anything Goes challenge. I thought it would be fun to join CAS on Sunday's first-ever challenge, too! 
Showing your love? Offering your heart? Link up with us this week!

Shiny? Silver? Robot? I love it! And it's SO perfect for a boy! I love your misting tip, by the way. That is a great idea.
That jeans pocket is awesome too :) I love the little note peeking out!

Your robot card is very cute but the heart note peeking out of your excellent denim pocket is delightful. The combination of colours and patterns works perfectly.
Have a happy day.

Ack! I love the shiny robot. He is too cute. LOL about the selective misting--it works to cut stuff off, right? And your jean pocket came out perfectly, Lindsey. I love the little love note!

That robot rocks and I love how you did the speech bubble - so perfectly misted! ;) The jeans pocket looks fabulous and really pops off that yummy paper. Total cuteness!
