Valentine Treasure

Today both kids are back in school!  Logan returned yesterday, Megan goes back today!  If I didn't have a million and three things to do I'd be at home, in a quiet, empty house stamping to my hearts content :)  I can't complain though, Dan had lots of time off over Christmas break so I was able to get lots of stamping done.  More than usual when the kids are home.  Plus I got to stamp with the kids a few times while they worked on 'Thank You' notes.  Here's one of the sweet cards I made.  Valentine's Day is right around the corner, it's time to start planning your Valentine's projects :)  This entire stamp set, Hey Valentine is so stinkin' cute!!! 
This card took a long time though, I used my Blendabilities to color, always super fun!!! But that wasn't the time consuming part, I think I may have gone insane for a little while (who can blame me though-kids are crazy over the holidays), I decided that this little image needed to be cut out, by hand.  The parts that were too small to do with my snips I cut with an Xacto knife......what was I thinking!?!  As you can image, that took a while.  But I think it was worth it.  This cute card is proof!  After coloring, and cutting out this image I decided that some of the elements needed some more shine, I used my glitter pen (from Amazon) to add some sparkle to the coins and his belt buckle (hard to see in the picture).  I also added the glitter to the Coastal Cabana heart in the background.  You can really see it shine!  This card is so super sweet!!  I just love it!!!!

Love this card! It reminds me so much of the penny valentines we had in elementary school. I don't know if they were really a penny, but that's what we called them. Bought them at the 5 & 10 in packages so we could send them to all our classmates. Your coloring on this is fabulous. Makes a cute card even better.
