XO

Hello all!
Back after a short break from reality!  We just got back from a packed week in Las Vegas, celebrating a significant birthday for hubby and I think we need a vacation to recover!  So much walking, around all the amazing and very large hotels and also around Red Rock Canyon and the Valley of Fire (which was incredibly beautiful).  I surprised hubby by flying over his daughter from the UK - his face was indeed a picture when he saw her :)
    Anyway, back to normal now and I'm behind in my blog postings and commenting so please bear with me whilst I play catch-up.  My first posting is for the latest Copics/alcohol markers challenge over at The Outlawz which is 'Valentines'.  I decided to play with one of my own LilyPink Designs digis from Can You Digi It and used a card I had pinned as inspiration  - from  Just Jingle .

     I coloured my winged heart with Copics and then fussy cut it  - I added several strips of washi tape to some white cardstock and used my Cameo to cut the graduated dots.  The 'XO' chipboard letters were painted white and I poured on some white glitter while the paint was still wet and finally I backed the white card with some black for some extra pop!

I would like to enter this into the challenges at - 


Thanks for popping in and I will get around to your wonderful blogs very soon :)

Cool! Is there anything that Cameo cannot do? Your heart digi looks awesome and I really like the chipboard letters. Glad you had a great trip Dawn. Happy Birthday to your hubby! Hugs!

Very striking card! Love the graphic feel! And I'm with you on Red Rock and the Valley of Fire...so spectacular! Happy to read you had a fun time in Vegas. We're going back out there next year to celebrate my hubby's 60th.

I love this Dawn. The circles cut with the Cameo are great. I love what you do with white background cards. They always look so crisp and clean but showcase your images so well.
