All Year Cheer with Sweet Talk

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 622 - Z Box Fold and last Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 618 - A Very Basic Rose.  I loved last weeks colors but just could get inspired.  My MOJO gone bye bye lately but today a glimmer of hope arose and went to the Cave, LOL.  I used basic grey as my base layered with rose red and then vanilla card stock.  I stamped the hearts along the bottom in rose red then the sentiments in basic grey.  The sentiment on the inside is from All Year Cheer III and is stamped in rose red.  I cut out a heart from the vanilla layer then a smaller heart from that layer and popped the smallest one up on dimensionals.  I hope you like this fun yet simple valentine creation.

Espress Yourself with the Nicest Things

I don't always get to play but when I do I love to pile it up. LOL. Sorry just made me think of that dumb commercial about some brad of liquor. Anyway this is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 620 - Twine Inlay and today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 411 - Hot Beverage which have been enjoyed this weekend with these below freezing temps we are having. I live in the deep south portion of GA why am I freezing? LOL So I think it is all self explanatory but I did use a heart border punch for the small hearts I needed.
I also used all the cut out pieces to help with the inside and envelope decorations. Hope you like it.
