I hope you are enjoying your trip down the RED HOT lane today and enjoy all the projects everyone has made for this hop. I would like to thank Celeste with Thirty OneGifts for sponsoring our hop and making such a fabulous prize available! A winner will be drawn randomly from one of the blogs in the hop so make sure you comment on each one both days of the hop!

I will be offering a prize from my blog and you will have to read to the end to find out how to win and what prize I am giving away.

My project for today is a red hot Valentine's Day card. The image is one that I got from my friend Linda, aka LGuild, last year. She was nice enough to stamp a sheet of them off for me and then scan them. I did enlarge the image a little for my use.

Supplies Used:
Stamped Image
ProMarkers
Heart Brads
Turn Mounts
5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
Heart Embossed paper
Red, Lime Green, Turquoise Cardstock
Pinecone Press Sweet Words
Cat Eye Chalk Ink Dark Brown


I used ProMarkers to color two images. On the flame I started with my red, lightly outlining the edges. I then went in with an orange and the colored the entire area with yellow. I also added some glitter with the Stardust Gelly Roll pen giving the flame a little sparkle.

I cut one of the images so I ended up with just the matches and the bottom of the book of matches. I glued the bottom of the matchbook directly on to the bottom image and then added pop dots to the matches.

To enter the giveaway for the prize of ProMarkers on my blog just leave a comment on this post and I will use Random.org to choose a winner. Comments will be closed on Monday morning at 8am. Don't forget to hop along tomorrow also. I will have another little project that is Red Hot!
