SUO Challenges 115

Yesterday was another beautiful day here in Florida! It was around 70 degrees. We had waffles with fresh strawberries and bacon for breakfast and I sat out on the Lanai and just relaxed for a while in the morning talking to Germaine. She had a Paper Pumpkin class with a bunch of ladies and I got to participate. We had a lot of fun! I was going to post the projects today but the Wi-Fi in the hotel at Disney is painfully slow so I’ll try again tomorrow. I left Germaine’s around 4:15 and drove up to The Villages to go and meet Maggie and her friend Carmel. We went out to dinner and then Maggie and I drove down to Disney to stay at the All Stars Sports resort. We stayed up late talking and laughing. Today we are going to go and stop by a Scrapbook store in Lakeland and then go to Epcot this afternoon. Should be a great day!!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Valentine wishes challenge. My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Pink Pirouette cut to 4″ x 5 1/2″. I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut out the heart from the middle and adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some more hearts are cut out with the Framelits from Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate along with some that are punched out with the “Vintage” Heart from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. The are adhered around the card with SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the You Plus Me Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Smoky Slate. I used one of the Hearts Collection Framelits to flag the end and that too is mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A fun bright Valentine! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges Valentine Wishes challenge. Stop by the blog and see what the other design team members have for your inspiration and add you card to the gallery! I wish you all a magical Tuesday and thank you for visiting! 🙂

  1. Yes, very jealous of your weather vs. L.I. Snow is only an excuse to stay in, warm, cozy and create. I love it. This card is very nice. I like the colors especially.

    1. Sorry Nancy! I’m so glad that I’m down here! I’m much happier being out and about in the sun! Glad that you enjoyed the card! 🙂

  2. Boy, am I ever jealous, but not for long. I am on a flight at 6:00 am tomorrow morning heading for Florida. Have tons of fun. Sounds like you are having a terrific time. I love all the hearts on your card. I am a heart lover, and this card would be great to send to anyone at anytime.

    1. LOL! I’m glad that you will be here soon! I’m having a great time! Glad that you enjoyed the card! 🙂

  3. Good Morning Justin:

    The snow is snowing and the wind is blowing and you are so missing the beauty of Mother Nature! As long as the electricity stays on I’m very content to watch this amazing blizzard that surrounds us. Meanwhile, I want to tell you what a fab card you made for this challenge. I love that the hearts look like they are floating down from the top of the card.

    Sounds like you are really enjoying yourself. Good for you. We all work too hard and get too little time off to relax. Have fun today and enjoy Epcot my friend. Hugs! 🙂

    1. Hi Grace!
      I’m not going to say that I’m sad that I’m missing the snow! I’d much rather be here where it’s warmer and sunny! Epcot was great!
      I’m happy that you like the card! Simple but fun!
      Looking forward to today’s activities! Hugs to you too! XO 🙂

  4. Hi Justin! Sounds like you are having a fabulous time! So glad you are meeting up with friends and enjoying yourself! You deserve it! LOVE your card today! I’m a heart girl so this is perfect for me!! The color combo is great too! We only had a few inches of snow so not too bad. I’d still take your 70 degree, sunny weather any day! Have an awesome day!

    1. Hello Karen!
      Yes, I’m having a great time! Love getting to see my peeps! Thank you! I thought that it was time for a pink card, haven’t done one in a long time! I’m happy to be in the 70 degree weather! 🙂

  5. Hi Justin. Well you sure did luck in to the perfect week to be away from winter storm Juno. I have been watching the weather channel from out here in Arizona. I have a lot of relatives on the east coast and it looks really wicked for all of them.
    The Valentine’s card you created is really nice- pink and grey have always been one of my favorite color combinations. The floating hearts really are cool!
    Have a great time at Epcot, I was there is June- way too hot and muggy for me!

    1. Hello Marty!
      I definitely did pick a good week to not be in NY! They got a lot of snow! Not missing it at all!
      Thank you! I do like the pinks and grays together too!
      Had fun last night! The summer is a bit warm here but still better than snow! 🙂

  6. Hi Justin, sweet card! Very cute and romantic 🙂 Sounds like you are already having a great time, the All Star Sports Resort sounds too good! How lucky that you got to join in Germaine’s party too! Well, I’ll be thinking of you while I work today *sigh 😉 Have fun, enjoy the sun xxx

    1. Hello Kelly!
      Thank you! I am having a blast! I have never stayed in Disney Before, it’s pretty neat! The party at Germaine’s was lots of fun! Great ladies! Hope you had a nice day at work! XO 🙂

  7. Love this card.. hearts are my favorite shape, I love your colors and design placement.

    OMG! I LOVE Epcot, it is my ultimate favorite thing about Disney! LOl you breakfast is making me hungry, my oatmeal no onger seems good. You will be jealous over CHicago weather, ice and snow.

    1. Thank you Linda! I had fun with the layout and I too like hearts!
      Epcot was fun and yes, breakfast was delicious! I’m happy to be missing all of that fun weather! LOL! 🙂

  8. Hi Justin it’s been a while. This card is lovely. Nice color selection. Aren’t the Villages amazing. I have and Aunt and Uncle who lives there. Love all the golf carts buzzing around. Anyway, enjoy your time in Florida and leadership.

    1. Hello Lisa!
      Yes, glad to see you! Thank you! The Villages are incredible and huge! It’s like a completely different world! I’m having a blast! 🙂

  9. Hi Justin,
    I live in Lakeland, Fl. and hope you went to Violette’s. We are so blessed to have such a resource in our little town. When my husband and I came to Manhattan I went to the Ink Pad that you mention often on your blog. I feel as though I know you from my daily visits to your blog and hope you enjoyed my town while you were here.
    You know… you can come down even if there is no SU gathering.

    1. Hello!
      I did go to Violet’s! That is an amazing store! So much stuff!! The Ink Pad is great too! I did enjoy myself a lot! I will definitely be back in Florida! I love it down here! Thank you for sharing in my days! 🙂
