The Pixie Cottage Challenge - Hearts and Love

Happy Wednesday,
I don't know where the time is going but it's time for another challenge over at The Pixie Cottage
To celebrate the upcoming Valentines Day we'd love to see your creations featuring "Love and Hearts".
If you've got a Pixie Cottage stamp then we'd love to see it used but if not you can use any image you like.

I've added a few (35) other challenges along with the team one.

OCC had a wonderful sketch
Charisma had an "I Love You" theme
Simon Says wanted to know "What's Love Got To Do With It?"
My Time To Craft ha a Hearts and Kisses theme
Tellens Place wanted a Valentines theme with at least 5 hearts
Jacksonbelle had a "Love is in The Air" theme
Tuesday Taggers had a Love is All Around theme
Humble Pie had a Love theme
Crazy Challenge had their 1st theme and it is Love
Craft wanted Love/Valentines
Pennys wanted Love/Valentines
Everybody Art wanted Valentines
Created By Hand wanted Valentines
Quirky Crafts wanted Valentines
The Pink Elephant wanted Mushy Gushy Valentines
Gingersnaps wanted Romance
Ooh La La want Love
Die Cut Dreams wanted Love
Cupcake Crafts wanted Red and White all Over , I hope they don't mind a little black too :)
Incy Wincy want Pink or Red and Black
Little Paper Shop want Red, Black and White
Creative Inspirations Challenge want Valentines with Black and Red
Cute Card Thursday wanted Spots and Dots
Lexi's want Spots or Stripes

Die Cut Dreams wanted you to Have a Heart
Crafty Calendar - Love/Friendship with an option of Hearts
Stamp With Fun wanted Hearts
Cutie Stampers wanted Hearts
The Crafty Pad had a recipe of 1 Fancy edge, 2 Hearts and 3 Papers
Other Lovlies had a theme of "Sweet" and I think this image is certainly sweet!
Stamping Vacation had their Pick 3 and I chose; Match the base cardstock with the ink (both black), Image with eyes, Use black and white cardstock and another color (black, white and red

I chose one of the latest stamps drawn by Eileen Gutierrez and this little guy is so super cute!
I colored him with Copic's.
The dp are just from my stash (and I have a lot of chose from afer 11 years of paper crafting ;))
I used two different Martha Stewart, the hearts border and a brand new one that punches both sides at once making a strip of paper lace in just one pass! I'm totally in love with this punch so be sure to look for it a lot.
I printed the title and cut and matted it with a scalloped circle Nestie.
I added tiny rhinestones to the paper lace.
The metallic paper is American Crafts.

Inside is more dp and a message mat with more of the paper lace.

Who wouldn't want to accept this little guy's heart?
So if you haven't already made your Valentine be sure to do so and enter The Pixie Cottage challenge and you could be our winner!
