 Today the Heidi Swapp Media team is celebrating a little early and hoping to share some inspiration with you.  We want you to make something. Anything. A card. A tag. Some cookies. You get the idea. And share your appreciation with someone you might not normally give to.

 I went with a classic standby...a card Valentine. Can't help myself with the new Color Magic Card sets? Are you kidding me? They are so much fun to play with and dress up and are a unique take on the traditional card.

 I kept mine very simple and soft. Using the Color Magic File Set, I took to coloring all the elements the same color using Blush and White Color Shine. More on that in a minute.

After everything was colored and let to dry, I took silver twine and layed it lazily on the card and held it in place with one of the hearts from the Color Magic Chipboard Stickers. I added a few more of the hearts as well. Some splatters of the Blush Color Shine and a few dots of Zazz Glitter Glue in Parfait and it was complete.

For the color of my card, I wanted really really soft, so here is what I did:

1. Used these items.

2. Sprayed Blush and White Color Shine on my craft mat, but I went a little heavier with the white.

3. Then the Color Shine was dabbed on the using a cosmetic sponge. And you can see how extra soft it is now on the Color Magic Element.

O.K. now...I have someone special in mind to share this Valentine with...it might sound corny...but it goes to the lady who does my hair. Cause she is practically a miracle worker. And I want her to know how much I appreciate her.
