FOSTV 59 - Non Traditional Valentine

Another week, another Monday and a new Friends of Speedy TV challenge.  I hope despite the grotty weather this week finds you warm and well.  This part of the UK has been spared most of the snow this time around but the skies are horribly grey and sleet is coming down so pretty yuck!  In the north it has been bad and I know the USA East Coast has had a really bad pounding.  When you can't get out there is a good excuse to pull out your stamps and craft.

The FOSTV challenge this week is to make a Non Traditional Valentine - now this might take a bit more thought but I am sure you can do it.  If you can don't forget to link your creations back to the Speedy TV site and this week's challenge - FOSTV59.

I actually have two cards to show today. 

The first one is actually not too crazy and uses the recently released set called Fantastic Dogs.  I used the mirror stamping technique to get the dogs facing each other.
The sentiments are from the same set and also from Love Remains.  The tiny heart is from Pet Logic. I am entering this card for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge "Love is in the Air" and Stampin with the Dragon challenge with the same theme. 

My second card is even more mad but I am going to share it none the less.  My image is from New Pines with sentiments from Above the Rest and the hearts as above.   I also used the background from Cracked Hello.

Now it is your turn to get creative and turn out a Non Traditional Valentine.  The set to be won by someone this week is called Kilt Fun.
 Good luck!


  1. Totally cool Valentine's card Janine, love them both, great job :)

  2. These are both really fun! I just love them! I think your second is way more non-traditional than the first and I got a good chuckle from it!

  3. Janine,
    Both of your cards are wonderful. The first one with the puppies is so cute and just made me smile. (I'll have to look up the mirror image technique - that's very cool)! And, your second card is lovely and elegant!!

  4. Such a sweet card. Thanks for joining us this week at Sentimental Sundays. Good luck and I hope to see you again real soon!

  5. Your card is adorable. Thanks for joining us at Sentimental Sundays.


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
