What a night!

Wow! How much fun was that Cheeky Valentine hop last night?!

I have to admit that it kept me up way too late, but it's all good... I've got today off so I could sleep in a bit. And now you know why I'm posting a bit later than usual too. ;)
Ah well, that's life... sometimes you need to be distracted by a Cheeky or two, or three! LOL

Ok, so I've got a quick one today and I pulled my chocolate strawberries color combo from this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge... Rachel always has the most delicious inspiration don't you think? :)
I also had fun with a bit of stamp altering... can you guess which Wild Sprouts I combined to make this sweet Valentine? Well the body is Megan's, gotta love that spunky hand on hip pose, and the head is Sassy Suzi's. I ended up giving her a bit of a hair cut to match her new spring time ensemble and I gotta say that I'm really diggin' her new flippy short 'do as a fun alternative look for her.
The rest of the card is pretty quick and easy, the whole little panel with the raccoon came straight from a sheet of BoBunny Love Bandit paper, which is just about the cutest Valentine's line of paper that I have ever seen!

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by and I hope you get some time to rest after the big hop last night too!
Catch ya later!

I slept in alittle too today as it snowed here and the the interstate I use to get to work had 13 wrecks that stretched only about 5 miles. And 31 wrecks that stretched agout 20 miles. Till they eventually have to shut down the interstate. We only had about 1 1/2",but a solid sheet of ice under that. And guess what I didn't created the first thing today!!
This card is so sweet!!! I always love your altering!! And this is no exception!!
Hugs:)
