What's stopping you?

Last week's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge called for buttons and bows. I did not have just the right color of buttons so using matching card stock embossed with UETT,  I improvised buttons that in my mind, technically, did not qualify.

When I first saw this image, I wonder why her head was bent down. Was she praying that he would like the valentine and accept her undying love? Is she debating whether or not she should give her beloved the valentine (I vote no)? After much contemplation, I have decided she sees something on the ground, possibly a snake or a mouse, and she is frozen in fear. On the other hand, there is a distinct possibility that she is not accustomed to wearing a hat and she is holding her head in that position hoping it will not fall off.


  1. Great card Tammy! Love the valentine girl!


  2. Adorable Tammy. Boy, you sure do put a lot of thought into the drawing. . . .don't you! I LOVE that!!!!!!

  3. Just LOVELY! Really like the embossed panels and of course the little hearts. AND you coloring...all I can say is WOW!

  4. I love the striking colours you have chosen for this card, Tammy and now have the same question, why is she looking down...I think it may be that she is a bit shy.

  5. hahahahaha, Tammy, I love your reasonings why she looks the way she does! totally adorable! LOVE the heart!!
