 I can only share the card I made for my daughter before Valentines because hubby looks at my blog :)  I usually only do two every year.

I had bought a bag full all of all kinds goodies at my stamp stores yard sale and in that bag was a sheet of hearts that you could color, well I have had it for a few years and thought I would get it out and figure out what to do with them.

Colored a couple of them, applied them to cardstock that I die cut into an oval, layered that onto a scalloped oval from black cardstock to go with the black strip of paper I put down the center.  Added a few stickles for some shimmer. It all seemed a little bare so I added a few rub ons with hearts and XO's.

  • Jot - Color me heart stickers, colored w/markers
  • Spellbinders - Classic ovals and Lacey ovals dies
  • BasicGrey - Picadilly Paper
  • Colorbok - Rub on hearts and XO's
It's hard to believe we are almost to Valentines day.  Hope you all north and east of us stay warm over this weekend, sounds like it is going to be a very chilly weekend.

I would like to share my card today with

 Simon Says, Love is in the air challenge .

And Simon Says Love/Heart Challenge

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
