Be Mine Valentine

Good Morning Friends!

I hope you are doing well this Thursday~

I have a sweet little Valentine for you this morning! I had to put together a card quickly, so a little short on time I am going to make this short and sweet! 
I began with cream cardstock onto which I layered a piece of kraft cardstock using the letterpress technique to the card base.   The beautiful stamps I used are from Waltzingmouse Stamps called Seasons of Love.  A fussy seam binding bow and button were added to the top.  
I used the sketch from The Paper Players this week. 

I am going to play along at Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes.  Shop our Stash - Valentine/ Hearts (I have had that Designer Paper FOREVER). Crafting for all Seasons - Buttons and Bows, Cut It Up - Love is In the Air, The Pink Elephant - Hearts, Southern Girls Challenge - Get Krafty

I hope you have a Terrific Thursday! The Short Stack gets out of school early today! I must get to moving and make use of my time today!
~Tammy~

This is so pretty and full of fabulous detail, Tammy! I hear ya on the early release--both my kids have half days tomorrow, so my day will be cut short--and replaced by serving lunch to both kids and the friends they are bringing home. Fun, but exhausting day ahead!
