It's Softpencil Thursday Preview Day!

I fell in love with this adorable image as soon as I saw it! It's one of Elizabeth's new Valentine images featuring Michu and Michula. They are standing in front of a heart. The heart is blank, so you can put whatever you want inside! I have been wanting to make another shaker card for a few weeks now, and when I saw this image, I knew it was perfect! The twist was to add rhinestones, eyelets, or brads: choose one or all three. I chose rhinestones. The confetti I chose for the shaker reminds me of rhinestones, too. They are tiny, tiny hearts that Look like rhinestones! Perfect! (Double click for a closer view.) Michu and Michula are standing in front of the heart and telling each other what "Love is....". What are they saying? What would you say? One of the things I would say is, "Love is having a husband who loves to cook for me!" Hubby doesn't like to clean up after a meal, and I don't mind at all. He says he would rather cook. He doesn't bake, but I do!
Look at Michula! I colored her as a Valentine Calico cat! She is pink, gray, and white. She even has two heart shaped patches! Can you see them?
You have got to stop by Elizabeth's shop and see her new Valentine images! Valentine's Day will soon be here, and you want to be ready! She also has a link to some FREEBIES at the shop!
