Friends of Speedy TV and Valentines

Yep, it's that time of year folks!  Time to get your Valentines done.  The Friends of Speedy TV are all about being helpful, so today's challenge is to make a Valentine card.  This one is a little bit on the non-traditional side.  I don't know of many Valentines with yellow and green on them.  Pink seems a common color so you know I had to add it!  I went to a Copic coloring class on Saturday, so I probably should have colored this lemon.  I just got the idea of paper piecing in my head and just couldn't get it out.  By the way, how do you glue down your tiny little pieces!  Most times, I use a two-way glue pen or my Quickie glue pen.  Today, I thought I would be clever and use my Xyron, only I put the leaves and the flower in upside down.  I was irritated with myself as that was some serious fussy cutting I had done.  So...I stuck my flower down on top of the leaves and rushed downstairs to the bathroom for some baby powder.  Problem solved, baby powder wiped out my stick on top of the leaves and flowers.  Then I pulled my piece through the Xyron correctly and finished my card!  Incidentally, I used the current Splitcoaststampers sketch for today's card.

Happy Monday folks!  I hope you can stop by and play along with us this week!  Take care.
