~Valentine Cupid~

Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with me at the Charmed Life Blog.
I woke up to a snowy, Sunday morning. We are under a winter storm advisory and expecting some a crazy mix of weather today and overnight.
The snow kept me from church this morning. I was torn on what to do but I am not adventurous in the snow so I decided to stay home. My hubby works on Sunday mornings and then just meets me at church. He decided to go but there is not time to come and pick me up. I like starting my week with church at the forefront but it wasn't to be this week.
We are also supposed to go over my son's home for a Super Bowl party later on but I don't know if we are going or not yet. We are supposed to get some freezing rain later this evening. It's a 45 minute drive to their house so it's a wait and see right now.
Enough of the snow talk and disrupted plans. Let's get on to my card for today. I am making Valentine cards right now. I send a lot and give some to my friends for their hubbies or wives.
This one I made using the sketch #524 from Splitcoaststampers.
My background designer paper is from Stampin'-Up's "modern medley" collection. For the panel 3 I used some mesh ribbon from May Arts.

The heart is a die from Cherry Lynn Designs. I really like the lacey and open look of this heart. The cupid, mini hearts and love you words are dies from Impression Obsession.
Well, that's my card for today. Stay warm and enjoy the big game today. That's if you are watching.

Card Details:
Paper: real red, basic black, modern medley dsp (Stampin'-Up)
Paper Size: A2 Accessories: Cheery Lynn Designs heart die, Impression Obsession love and cupid dies
