I Choose You...

This image is so wonderful. 
It's called Oh, Please Be Mine from the ever amazing artist Lynne Stansbery and  fits perfectly for our challenge over at Squigglefly of Winter Blues. You can make a winter themed card or a card that focuses on the color blue or combine the two.  I decided that the wonderful image needed to be the very prominent feature so I pierced holes all the way around the die cut heart and crocheted a blue frame. Added several blue variation flowers and a matching sentiment at the bottom. The heart is actually mounted on foam squares so that it can be removed and hung anywhere that the recipient chooses.  
So many terrific options to choose from on this challenge so we'd love for you to visit. Here's one more bit of  handy dandy news too.
Squigglefly Reward Program
The reward program is free to join and is a great way to earn free images. For every $15.00 you spend you will earn a free image. You can use the free image immediately, or save up and go for a big splurge one day. They never expire. Another thing that's really great is that if you are just now finding out about the rewards program, and you've already purchased images - Squigglefly will credit you any money spent in the current month! So stop in and see the incredible images from Lynne Stansbery and ALL the other fabulous array of talented artists!
Have a brilliant and creative day,
Lisa xx
