Some Valentines

I told my sister this morning that I have been avoiding my studio like the plague. And I have, I don't know why really except I've been feeling really blocked lately, and I am fighting a fear that I will get in there and not be able to produce anything. But today I am putting together a little Valentine's package for my goddaughter and my best friend from college. They live in CA, and I want to get it in the mail later this week or early next week. My friend is really into the steampunk look right now, so I thought I'd make her a steampunk valentine, but the end product looks way more Victorian in style, lol.
I have a package of vintage look valentines I had from a few years back. I thought this shoe was cute, since we both love to shop for shoes! ;) I stated with some rose print DP, and a heart doily, and the layered on the shoe  and some other ephemera. I added a die cut row of hearts at the top, a few gems, and a stamped banner with the sentiment that I gave some movement to.
The second card is for my goddaughter. I have this cute Feeling Cupidy set that I hadn't inked yet. I stamped Cupid Bun on a die cut that I'd cut previously and not used. The die is a Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die set. 
I colored Cupid Bun with Copics, added some flock to his wings and  some Frosted Diamond Stickles to his nose and tail. I picked up some cute things to fill up that felt bag for her that's in the background.
Behind Cupid Bun is a doily, a Heart Rosette CutUp in red, I left it flat, to look more like a doily, and some DP. 

That's all for me today. I will be back at midnight TONIGHT EST with the new TCP Tuesday Challenge, and I promise, this is one you aren't going to want to miss! :) In the meantime, I will try to stop cowering in fear about crafting, haha.

Have a fabulous day, Noelle
