Non-Cheesy Sweet Talkin' Favorite Valentine

Happy Friday everyone. So glad if finally got here. I know I am wishin' my life away. Anyway this is for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE - Non-Cheesy Valentines. We were to make a valentine that was non folded, easy to mass production of with limited layers and restricted colors. WOW talk about limits. Thanks Wendy for this kewl challenge. I created my own background sheet of 12x12 cs using sweet talk hearts and short words. I got the idea for this from Shannon last year when she was over one day in my play room. Sorta CASED her idea huh? The Happy Valentine Day sentiment is from H & M STAMP COMPANY set called My Favorite Valentine. I needed a small one to fit on the page and it worked perfect. I can get 12 cards of 3x4 out of this background page. My large heart is a Quickutz Nestie Cookie cutter die. I punched 2 slots to slide the sucker stick in . Well and since I do not keep suckers here at my house I had to make one. I folded a white stip of cs then punched 2 Martha Stewart Hearts in red cs and attached to the stick. I can leave it as it is or replace it with a sucker, either way I think it turned out too cute. Not sure why my pic is so blurry, I tried 3 times and finally settled for this one. Sorry.
