Valentine for a Friend

Hi Ya~

{Wohoo, this card made Top 3 at Simply Stampin' on 1/20/12}

It's already half way through the week and half way through the month...REALLY??? How does this happen?  Man I must be getting old!

I have a cute little card for a friend that can also double as a Valentine. Throwing the yellow in makes it interesting and fun!

All things you see above was created from my scrap pile!  The stamps I used are from Stampin' UP! I {Heart} Hearts stamp collection.

Lots of fun working with my spellbinders, heart punch, snowy glitter and fabulous seam binding to bring  this fun little card together.

I am going to play along with these challenges today!

I used the colors from CR84FN.
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.

Simply Stampin' Challenge: To Die For. And last, but not least I am playing along with Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge. All papers including card stock were from my scrap pile.

Thank you to everyone who sent well wishes and concerns for my friend's son.  He did great and they anticipate that his heart will be better than ever.  

I also have a toot to share today, this card was selected for Coloruq Color Queen Courtier.  You can see the original post here.
Thanks so much for stopping by! You make my day!

Your valentine today is very sweet! THe yellow is an unexpected color for one, and that ranks high in my book. Pretty glitter on the heart, too.
