Simon Says HEART Challenge I say when Tim meets Dylusions equals LOVE

Hey Everyone, I am playing along with Simon Says Challenge. I had so much fun with the Tim Holtz minis and Dyan's Dylusion stamps. Perfect for Valentines Day. I made tags and then used the easel die to attach to the back so they would stand. Any of you that have been following me know how much I love easel cards and love to make tags. They are such cute little works of Art, so I wanted them to be able to be seen and not just layed down.

I am entering this in Tim's February Tags also. I did not have all of the parts that Tim used, so went with what I had.
If you have any questions just leave a comment and I will answer. . I am going to give away  3 of my quilted hearts. If you are interested in one, email me at letting me know and I will draw three names on Tuesday and get them off to you. Thanks for taking the time to look and keep those hands inky DiAnn

Valentine Village

Hi everyone, hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. I did and am ready to tackle the redoing of my office it is in need of some parting of goodies, which is very hard for me to do. Over the holiday as I was blogging along I came upon Anita Huston's Christmas Hood(Village). You can see it here.I was so inspired by it, I just keep looking and looking at it. I wanted to make it sooooo bad, but because I really had all of my Christmas complete I didn't. Then I thought why not make it for Valentines Day. So I made a Village all dressed up for Valentines Day.

Thank you Anita for the inspiration! This little village was so much fun. I am thinking about sell the individual houses as kits. Is any one interested in making the houses? Are you ready for Valentines? Will post some paper crazy quilted Valentines tomorrow. Until then keep those hands inky and have fun. DiAnn
