I was blog surfing today and found this Valentine by Juliet that looks a great deal like the Christmas card I sent her ... turns out she scanned it, cleaned it up and recycled it into a Valentine. I am honestly Honored!

I looked at a lot of cards before I decided which one to case for the Sunday Featured stamper at Splitcoast. Since I didn't have the Whipper snapper stamp, I drew the image in pencil then went over it with black gel pen and finally with a durango colored marker. I think it turned out kind of cute!
Amazing what you can do if you can't get at your usual supplies. I used glitter glue for brads, and had no solid colors to layer so I drew a line around the edges with my marker. I used kitchen string in place of ribbon. And I met my New Year's Resolution to decorate envelopes and insides.
The links below are other cards I considered casing before I settled on this one.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
