More Hearts and Cupids Oh My!

Honestly I was so done with Valentine's Day and all that XOXO stuff and then "BAM," again I was struck by Cupid's little arrow.  Now the path it struck was via Linda's Grungy Monday "Who Loves Ya, Baby"and Tim's new "12 Tags of 2012"  I was so excited that Tim is taking us in a "new direction" and this is now a monthly adventure!  How brilliant is that guy???   Anyway, I pulled out all my stuff again this AM and here is what I came up with.  Not one tag, but two tags.  Inspiration Emporium has a challenge and wants us to "Put A Heart On It," so that is a given that we are linking up to their challenge along with Simon Says Stamp and Show, "Anything Goes."
Pretty much followed Tim's direction and just changed up a few things for what I had on hand!  Can you believe I still don't have the little Cupid Die??  However, this time one was a grungy little Cupid and the other was stamped from Tim's new V-Day set.  He was embossed with the black mix, then another cover of my own mix which has clear mica flakes in it.  I tried to get an up close and personal picture, but it did not look very good with the glare, etc.  It does show through IRL with red, blue sparkles and of course bits of the clear mica flakes. 
Some of my supplies!
TO ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS - On March 5th, I will be offering up some really sweet blog candy for my two year blogaversary as a "Thank You."  You really don't want to miss this one, so don't forget to check back.   Thank you for stopping by today and I hope the rest of the week is amazing for you!

These are great tags, Terry! I really like your take on them, darker and less sparkly - that's my cuppa! Love the way you did the tip of the arrow red, too!

OK, whew, I knew I hadn't been 'round in awhile ... but WOW! I've missed a LOT!

Your shrinky dink text creation on the ATC is outstanding! And the following post, your It's All About Hearts" tag is beautiful!

It actually makes me wonder, when you mention on this post that you don't own the cupid die ... how are you making those awesome cool cupids? What am I missing?

Also, the monochrome project you posted on Feb 11 ... HOLY COW! WOW!

I LOVE that one, and thanks for the detailed description of how you created the map!

I hope you're enjoying a wonderful, relaxed, margarita filled weekend!
