XOXO! Dynamic Duos #88

Good morning, crafty friends.
Well, the count-down to the next-busiest card-giving season of the year is ON!
And the Dynamic Duos challenge has a great colour combo to play with for Valentine's Day cards:
I used a retired red from Close to My Heart, Tulip, along with  Lagoon, and lots of white as an accent.
I've been working on Valentine's cards for the up-coming workshop I'll be running with the Recreations Therapists, for the patients at the Rehabilitation Centre where I work. I shamelessly CASEd a card by fellow DT member, Angel Johns,  HERE. Loved your card, Angel! The patients will have a great time making her design their own, too.
I love how she attached the doily with some washi tape, and that upgoing pattern of cupid's arrows.
I used several new Valentine's products from Paper Smooches, LovestruckSweet Hearts and the Heart Dies. I also used some papers available in the new Close To My Heart Idea Book.

Couldn't resist a shot of Smooch Spritz and some sparkly red bling. Plus accenting the little heart die-cuts with some Liquid Glass.
Finally, a big loopy bow of red jute and a dash of Wink of Stella glitter pen.

So! Time to check out the bright and cheery cards by my Dynamic team-mates:

Hope to see YOUR project at the Dynamic Duos this week!

Happy weekend and happy crafting,
