regal heart

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Well, it's the day after the Super Bowl here in Pittsburgh.
Our Steelers lost the big game to the Green Bay Packers.
It was a disappointing loss and kind of put a damper on the Super Bowl party at my son's home. But, there is always next year.

But, on the bright side it was a great time with my grandsons. And, I did spend the night at their home.

Austin, had a 2 hour delay at school so I drove him and then headed home around 10:00.
There was lots of controversy about the delay as well. The local paper was very critical. I thought it was a good idea.

The boys were all up past 11:00 and really didn't want to get up when it was time. Aidin & Ethan go to another school and they had no delay. They got up at normal time and they both were tired. That doesn't make for a productive day in my mind. But, I am not a teacher.

Anyway, onto my card for today. I made another Valentine's card. I haven't made one for my grandsons as yet so they need to be completed as well.

This card uses a digi image from Verve. Julee Tilman gave it out this time last year. I am just beginning to experiment with digital images. I used a copic marker on this heart. Notice that I said "a" copic marker. I only have one and it happens to be in red. I havent made the plunge to buy any more of these because of the cost.

My designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "sending love" specialty collection. It's already glittered & embossed. I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder on my background panel.

The card layout is from February's "viva la verve" challenge week 1.

Some other challenges I am entering:

1.  Craft your passion blog has an anything goes challenge.

3.  Stamps r us has a valentine/love theme for the next 2 weeks.
