Good afternoon!  Well, so far I spent an hour shoveling snow again, but now I'm caught up with my house work and the baby ate her lunch and now she's taking her nap so I figured it was a good time to update for today.

I love all the hearts that I have seen lately and so today I decided to make another Valentine's Day card using the I (Heart) Hearts Stampin Up stamp set. 

I began making my card by first stamping the tree image from SU's Season on Friendship stamp set.  Next, I sponged my background to create the clouds and I did this by taking a scrap punched scallop circle and using that as my template and I sponged my clouds using bashful blue ink.

Then I proceeded to create the hearts.  I only used the small heart stamp from this stamp set, but I stamped it using real red and pretty in pink.  I stamped the small hearts and then I punched them out using my heart to heart punch and I glued them onto my tree image.  Some of my hearts were not stamped and I just punched them from real red and pretty in pink card stock.  I even added some white dots to a few of those hearts using my white gel pen just to give a few of the hearts a different look.

And the last thing I did was to add my ribbon.  I love the way this card turned out, so cute for 'I love you day' and I hope you like it too!  Thanks so much for stopping by. I love sharing my stamping work with everyone and I'd love to have you become a follower.  Have a great evening!
