Michelle Perkett Studio So Sweet Cupcakes Valentine

Everyone has something to do at my house today!  
I have some cute pictures for you at the end of my post, but first I'd like to share my card with you.

I made today's card for a new challenge starting at Michelle Perkett Studio, the challenge is "Scallops & Frames".

I had an extra So Sweet Cupcakes image on my table and thought it would be perfect to put in a frame for this challenge.  I used Copic markers to color my image RV10, RV11, E42, E43, E44, R22, R24, R27.  

The frame is made with two Spellbinders dies one inside the other on the magnet sheet and cut out and embossed.  The frame needed to be so big I didn't have much space for anything else on my card so dotted ribbon by May Arts seemed like the thing to do.

  The embossed hearts on the white panel are from a new Sizzix embossing folder I have acquired recently.  I also added Stickles to the hearts, I had it just perfect and I was talking on the phone and smeared it!  So... I attached a tiny red heart that was on the table from a border on another card.  When the Stickles dried I applied Glossy Glaze over the top for a little added shine.  My smear turned into a creative opportunity.

Now I can get back to everyone being busy at my house.
Do you ever sit down and try to craft and everyone needs something?  It's not so much the humans at my house but the animals so here are some cute pictures of everyone keeping busy.

Michael is practicing playing his Recorder while Maxine rests on his foot.  
Miss Kitty is keeping an eye on everyone from my Scor-Pal.
Inky was thinking of getting in my light box so I grabbed a plastic bag for her to play with.
I'm a "good Mom" right?!
As they say... the cat is in the bag.

My husband is out back working on Maxine's dog run which is turning into a nice back patio for us.

Speaking of Maxine she just woke up and I think she and I better go outside, gotta go!
