I Love You More

Happy Valentines' Day !!

How fun it is that my A Blog Named Hero Facebook post falls on Valentine's Day!

A Blog Named Hero February challenge theme is: Clean and Simple.

For today's card I struggled a bit in the beginning.  I knew which stamp I wanted to use, but I couldn't decide what to do around it.  So I started with the color and went from there.  I stamped my dog on colored card stock and colored with pencils.  Then I went thru my neat little collection of scraps that I had a hard time letting go and found bits of paper with colors that match.  Bingo!  The rest of the card just came together.  I carefully cut around his hand, lift and slip the heart die cut under it so it looks like he is holding it. The sentiment is stamped and clear embossed with small heart stamp over the letter "o".  And there is a hidden "i" on my card, do you see it?  :)

Is this what you see?  Yup, that's my letter "i".  :)
