Handmade Valentine\’s are such a nice gift and today at Watercooler Wednesday we are creating projects for the holidays. I came up with a pastel pink Valentine design for my mother. I feel extremely lucky to still have my 83 year old mom. She lives a mile away and we see each other often.
I designed a wreath using the fun elements in SSS\’s Hello Friends Stamp set. I lightly drew a circle where I wanted the wreath placed and then hand stamped all the cute little elements. The sentiment is from Forever in Time – Sentiments. I colored with Copic Markers: RV04, RV21, RV23, YG01, YG03. And because my mom likes lots of sparkle, I brushed the flowers with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer, added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the circles and heart and placed three Studio Katia Clear drops on the wreath.
Hop on over to see what the other Watercooler Artists created this week for All About the Holidays. I hope you will link your creation too.

This is lovely Karen and I really like the bright colours you have chosen. That's amazing that you hand stamped the tiny images individually as that would be hard to get them lined up so well. I'm glad you still have your mum – that's a true blessing! And just like my mum, she loves sparkle! My mum loved it, even on her nails, at age 76!
What a beautiful wreath. Love your colors and those images are so pretty! Thank so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week.
Beautiful card and sentiment. I'm enjoying the simplicity of the design – stunning! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!sue n.
