How's a little Valentine for you??

Hi everyone. Sorry it took so long today to post, I've been with hubby all day cutting wood. My SIL has a fireplace and she uses it mostly in the winter for heat - and she's about out of wood, so today was wood cutting day. Since hubby and I get along well (my ex and I did not work well together) I don't mind spending the day with him.
Really quick, I've got to tell you this... It still amazes me how the weather can change so quickly out here. We were cutting wood and I thought that I saw something. I was not sure if it was rain or snow or what (I didn't have my glasses on) so I held out my hand. I thought it was hail, so I said to hubby "look. look" holding out my hand. He just looked at me like I was stupid. Then I noticed it was sleet. There were "rocks" all over me. It looked just like rock salt. I told him again "look" and he really must of thought I was demented or something because he looked at me and said "Foxy Loxy, Foxy Loxy the sky is falling". I snorted, I thought that was so funny. He later said "you looked like you'd never seen sleet before". Ok, you had to be there I guess.
Enough of the jabbering.... On to my creation.
This is one of two of my all time favorite stamps for Valentines day. It is from Whipper Snapper and I bought it a LONG time ago. I used the sketch challenge from SCS, it was SC204.

The base card is Pretty in Pink. I layered it with papers from Heidi Grace, Real Red and Basic Black. I added some sheer ribbon, primas and crystal brads to bling it up a little. The Real Red paper was run thru my cuttlebug with the swirls folder. I colored that little guy with my pencils and gamsol and accented the heart with my SU! markers. I also sponged some Pink Passion ink around the image panel before I adhered it to the card. Lately I've been jazzing up the insides of the cards too. I really never did before, but I figured it's part of the card ~ why not. So I stamped the sentiment (that came with the stamp) inside and used a piece of scrap paper that I had cut off and I was done!

When I purchased the Hogs and Kisses stamp it came with the sentiment and this one. Now, I know that Whipper Snapper has this stamp still for sale, but not the other one or the sentiment stamp ~ at least I did not see them on line. I used another SCS sketch SC209 for this card.

The base card is Real Red. I layered it with Pretty in Pink, Basic Black and some DP from Cloud 9. The Pretty in Pink paper I ran thru the cuttlebug. I added a photo corner that I made and some sheer ribbon. If you notice the Basic Black panel behind the image panel, I actually used a pair of scissors that never see the light of day. I have a whole drawer full of scissors that I never use! I sponged some Real Red ink around the image panel also.

Well - that's all I've got for you today. I've got a couple of errands to run tomorrow (hopefully morning!) and then I will be at it again. I just love Valentines day! It's so much fun to make things for.

Don't forget about my blog candy giveaway. I have a TAC stamp set that I'm adding to the pot! So I hope you all sign up for it!

Have a great evening!
Hugs,
Joani
