Happy Valentine's Day

I am always happy when Margaret fills in on the weekends.  It gives me a break, and if I am smart, I can get ahead by making a card
or two or three.  This weekend I made 3!!!

Today's card is a Valentine's Day card for one of the girls at work.  Tomorrow I will have another Valentine's Day card for my friend on maternity leave.

This girl loves to garden, so I went with spring colors rather than the traditional red and white.  The Impression Obsession heart is embossed with Stampendous White Detail.  The flower is made with an MFT die and I made extras of the center and used them as accents above/to the left of the heart.  I added rhinestones for bling.  The sketch comes from 613 Avenue Create.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Pink Gem - Hearts/Valentines
My Sheri Crafts - Valentine

We had a nice weekend and Schmitzy is looking a lot better.  We go back to the vet for a 2-week follow-up/stitch removal tomorrow.  Will let you know how it goes!

Thanks for stopping by!
