Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!

I hope you all have a great day. I am trying to catch up on some things around the house, so I'll be short and sweet today.

This is the Valentine I made for my sweetie. I really like it.. not too frilly, but still incorporates some of my favorite elements.

The card size is larger than normal (4-1/4 by 7 inches), based on last week's sketch challenge on Mercy's blog (you can click on the photo for a larger view).

I used Top Ten and Top Ten Additions, stamping each word and then punching it out with different sized heart punch. I added some stitching and some dimension, shooting for a collage-y type look. A perfect Valentine for my husband.

So glad that you stopped by today, and I hope to see you again soon!
