This week's challenge is SFC0415 Put a Little Love in Your Heart!

This week's challenge is called Put a Little Love in Your Heart!  To play you need to either have a heart shape on your card or use the word "love" somewhere on your card (or both)!  Your card does not have to be Valentine themed as long as you meet either requirement.  So show us your wonderful cards and as always, we'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.  Please come and play as this is the last official challenge for us!!  The winner on this challenge will be sent THREE surprise images from the store.

Be sure and go by the store and grab the stamps that you want as it will officially close on Feb 1st!
 
Let's start with some great examples from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin created this great valentine and uses both a heart (balloon) from her image and the word love in her card sentiment (as well as the background paper!)  This lovely image is Flyin' Foxy from artist Fawn Palmer.

 
Kecia Waters  created this fun card using a new image from artist Cheryl Alger.  I just love this polka dot card and the lovely sentiment added.  This fun stamp is Sally's Letter.  The actual image also includes a cute little bird, so click the link to see the entire image.

  
Elizabeth Hart made this adorable Valentine.  It's using a wonderful stamp from artist Sandra Caldwell called Bearly Lovely. Don't you love the gorgeous color combo.  Beautiful work Elizabeth.  She has both hearts in her image, heart embellishments as well as the word Love on her card!

 
Jen Leeflang created this adorable Valentine's Day card using a lovely image from artist Sandra Caldwell called Love My Puppy.  Don't you love the way she added dots around the image?  it really makes her dog stand out,  Gorgeous coloring!
 
Shell Becker created this gorgeous valentine with a beautiful image from artist Sandra Caldwell.  This lovely image is called Bearly Please me Mine.  Not only does her image have a heart in it, she also added beautiful heart embellishments and heart paper.  Gorgeous work Shell.

 
Shirley Quary made this beautiful heart theme card with a gorgeous image from artist Lynne Stansbery.  This wonderful image is called Pinky Swear.  Do you remember the last time you made a pinky promise to someone?  It comes with the sentiment shown plus two other sentiments!

 

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) have a fun square card using a great image from Sandra Caldwell. I have both a heart in my image as well as on my card plus the work love on a stitched tag (in black). This sweet image is called He Loves Me.

 
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use at least one stamp from Squigglefly!
