FBD, February Photo Inspiration Challenge!

Hello to all of my crafty friends!
Here we are starting a brand new month long
challenge for the month of
February at
Freshly Brewed Challenges!

Choose Your Challenge!

I'm excited about sharing this months
Photo inspiration picture with you!
I love this photo and of course it makes me think
of Valentine's Day with those yummy hearts, as it is February!

Here is the Valentine card that I created using
the above photo for inspiration! 

I used Fresh Brewed Designs
along with
 I colored with my copic markers
Used Stampin Up Heart Framelits
and banner framelits
Scrap Design papers
Ribbon, bakers twine, heart charm and pearls
are all from my stash!
I couldn't resist pairing these two stamps together for my card!
Hot cuppa Joe, reminds me of my husband when he was young
with hair!  LOL!
Oh, He is still buff, but alas.....his hair is gone.
It's true though, that bald is sexy!  LOL!
I made this card to share with him on Valentine's Day!
I think that it will definitely make him smile!
I thought about not adding lace, and then I decided,
"It's my Valentine creation for my husband, and he
certainly won't mind some lace, ribbons and pearls!"
He knows me and he will know that I couldn't help myself!  LOL!
(It was really hard for me not to add flowers!!)
I'm very blessed to have a husband who is so supportive
with my love of card making!
And I love to work with
I'm so very excited, as this month
we have our newest

I woke up to snow this morning and it's
supposed to continue snowing until after 6:00 p.m!
The perfect weather to drink coffee, browse through
blogs and play in my craft room......
If I didn't have to work!
I had better go and see what is closed and who is
staying home.  I might get lucky and close!
