It’s a love bug!!!

So I sent out Valentine’s this year, it was fun actually.  One of my favorite memories as a kid was getting that construction paper out, the Elmer's glue, scissors, markers and whatever else I could find to make cards with.  Do you remember how to cut a heart out of a piece of paper???
In addition to the one sheet wonder Valentine’s that I made, I also played around with some other stuff.  This one I gave to my friend Kathy.

The ribbon was from a box of chocolate covered strawberries that we had at her house one Friday night, the conversation hearts were embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the circles were cut with my Spellbinders.   Now that darling little LOVE BUG (whom both Kathy and my husband both called a lady bug) is a digital stamp from Little Scraps of Heaven.  It was a freebie a long time ago that I thought was adorable.  I colored it with my Copic markers and let me tell you I couldn’t have picked harder colors to work with.  Reds run and well, you can’t use a solid black to color with because black isn’t really ‘black’.  I’m still learning as I go!
Have a great day!
