Valentine's Day Card

Hello friends! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Today I am sharing my first ever Valentine's Day card for 2012! I don't know why I waited so long to make one! I mean, I LOVE hearts! Valentine's Day may not be my favorite holiday but I do love it...yes, because of all the hearts! LOL

I made this card for the Lollipop Crafts Challenge, which is to make Valentine's Day card. This is also my entry for The Greeting Farm's Saturday sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers and Monday Fun Day at Farm Fresh Challenge.

I used the most darling Blush Babette and the Blush Hello background from The Greeting Farm. Sentiments are by Hero Arts.

I haven't made an easel card in ages so here it is! When I first saw the sketch over at the Farm Fresh blog, I thought a little hidden pocket would be cool on this card.

Since there is a little pocket on this card, I thought a little tag would go along with it! I totally wasn't thinking that the little tag would be too bulky for the pocket! Oh well...

Here is a closer look at the tag. Amy gave me this little pretty yo yo. So pretty! Thanks again, Amy!

This set is for my February secret sister. The theme is HEARTS! So perfect, right? LOL I am working on other stuff to go with the card. Unfortunately, I don't have any more of the papers I used here. :( I usually try to match and coordinate a set but I guess not this time! LOL Hope my secret sister will like it anyway!

Well, that's all for now. Thank you all so much for stopping by!
