Piano Teacher's Valentine

Quick post today, because I'm late...this morning I realized we hadn't made a valentine for the kids' piano teacher...not usually a big deal, but she is actually the person who got us interested in papercrafting, so it seemed appropriate to make her a card. Now, she's not really in to patterned paper cards, and she seems to like pastels. I thought it would be neat for each of us to decorate a heart and put it on the front of the card in a row...

Now, the hearts are made with my Martha Stewart punch, and 4 hearts in a row is kind of long, so this ended up being a non-standard sized card (not a big deal since we will hand deliver it today during piano lessons); finished size is 4.25" x 7"...

So, from left to right, we have a heart designed by Peter (red & pink w/ Sakura stardust pen), Sophia (diamond stickles), Anastasia (pearls, each one glued on individually), and me (tee hee, it's a leftover heart from previous projects). Ziggy doesn't take lessons from her, so he didn't have to make a heart :)

I think she'll like it, even thought the colors are a bit different. Yes, it kind of has a baby shower look to it, but she likes the lighter stuff, so there you go...Hope the Stickled heart dries quickly, because we have to go to piano lessons soon (please dry, Stickles, you can do it!)

Paper...Razzleberry, Wild Cherry, Cotton Candy (PopTone), Pink Carnation (Martha Stewart), Solar White (Neenah), Yellow (stash) dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Heart punch (Martha Stewart), threading water punch (Fiskars), Sakura stardust pen, diamond Stickles, string of pearls from Michael's, white paint pen, dimensionals, fuschia satin ribbon (stash)
