First Valentine's Card

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Our cold temps are going to be hanging around for a few days. I think its perfect weather to make soup. Something about soup and crusty bread that warms up the coldest, snowy winter days.
My husband has been asking me to make stuffed green pepper soup so today was the day. I found a recipe online and tweaked it a bit. It was so delicious and I doubled the recipe so we have leftovers. I think soup tastes better the 2nd day anyway after the flavors have a chance to meld together.

Now onto my card for today. Friday is my regular day to post on the Great Impressions Blog as part of their design team. I am showing my first Valentine card for the 2013 season.

My sentiment is from the Great Impressions Stamp -Happy Valentine's Day D364. I think the font is so beautiful and it's in stock at the online store.

I stamped in purely pomegranate ink and layered on Spellbinders ovals. My background paper is from BoBunny. Used a Stampin-Up scallop edge punch, middle layer is purely pomegranate silk ribbon.

My bow is made with the MFT bow die-namics. Punched 3 hearts to complete my card.

My card layout is Wednesday's sketch #417 from Splitcoaststampers.
Well, that's it for me for this Friday in January. Until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Simon Says Stamp has a "new something challenge. My stamp is new + my MFT bow die-namic.
2Cards Galore has an anything goes challenge.
3.  One Crazy Stamper has an anything goes challenge.
