Happy Heart Day

Happy Friday my friends, are you ready for the weekend?

I can't believe it is the last weekend in January already... no wonder I've been on such a Valentine's kick lately. Before you know it "Heart Day" will be upon us and though my only plans for it include getting a nice big box of chocolates, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy making cards for the holiday at all. Must be because I have such fond memories of the Valentine parties we would have back in grade school. Every year we would get to make big construction paper pockets and decorate them with glitter, stickers and paper doilies. Then on Valentine's Day everyone would bring in their cheesy little store bought Valentines featuring whatever cartoon characters were currently popular (Care Bears and Shirt Tales anyone?) then fill up each other's pockets with all of that 'love'... it was wonderful. :)

Today my little piece of paper love features a stamp from Lili of the Valley. When I saw the new release this cute little couple had me at hello... I just love how they are dreaming off into the future together, so sweet. :)
Besides the coloring this card is actually a pretty quick one to put together because I used a pre-made card base to build it on. Then I added some of my current fave embellies... rose ribbon... and a bit of other stuff and I called this one done.

Well, I best be getting myself ready for work. See ya in 24!
