CHNC challenge 216: love and/or hearts and/or red

As it's Valentine's day, today's CHNC challenge 216 is to use the word 'love' and/or hearts and/or the colour red on your Christmas creations. Please click on the link to see what this is all about and I hope you will. be able to join in the challenge.

For my first card I've included love, hearts and the colour red, featuring the lovely snowman family image that is part of Beccy Muir's snowman set (Beccy is one of this week's sponsors). I added the sentiment and mounted on to a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle that was delivered this week, not that the 'distressed' embossing has anything to do with Christmas, but I just wanted to use one of the textures folders. A piece of wired glittery ribbon around the card blank is pulled in with some red elastic and two glittery hearts added.

This is also for:

ABC Christmas: C for colourful
Lacy sunshine 51: have a heart
Artistic inspirations 124: anything goes with a twist of hearts
Melonheadz friends: hearts/love
Fitztown 68: have a heart
One stitch at a time 230: anything goes with love
Use your stuff 172: love theme (used mirror card and glittered hearts that I've had for ages)
Creative moments 61: anything goes/love
Meljen's 247: loving you
Wags n whiskers 147: for some you love
3 girl jam February: love with ribbon
Clear it out: red - red embellishments (the glittered hearts needed to be used)
Crafty sentiments: use some red
Penny's 214: embossing
Hannah and friends 215: embossing
Sweet stampin: inspired by a song - Frosty, the snowman
Stampartpaper retarte 34: love is in the air or anything goes
Allsorts 298: any occasion than birthday
Creative inspirations 300: anything goes
