Sending Love

The terrific Vicki Dutcher is the Muse this week at Muse Card Challenges.

This is the card that she produced and as you can see mine follows the same colour scheme and also has round elements.
The stitched circles are from Simon Says stamp as is the 'Sending' word. The word 'Love is from a Tattered Lace die. The stamped heart is from Stempelglede and the embossing folder used is from Cuttlebug.
Any of these three cards would fit with the challenge at Stamplorations this month where the theme is stamping and hearts, there's a little of both on all these, but I'll just link up this first one!
A friend at my choir has acquired a cat or rather the cat acquired them and is devoted to his wife, so he asked if I could make a Valentine for Magpie (said cat) to send to her (said wife).
I hope this looks a little like the original!
I masked the muzzle with rubber cement to keep it white whilst I coloured the rest of the head. It's a rather tiny SU stamp. I coloured the nose and the smudge on it after I had removed the cement with an eraser.
The Paper Players have  challenge Critter time so I thought that this would do for that.!
My last card is for the challenge at CASology
The keyword this time is HOT and I have to admit that that is how I like my coffee!
The stamps are from Stampin' Up.
Dies used are from SSS.
