Valentine Wishes

Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Saturday to you all. thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
We had a winter storm here in Pittsburgh that started Friday night and ended this afternoon. I am south of the city and we had about 8" of snow here. I had my groceries bought so I didn't have to go out anywhere.
My hubby had to work today and he said the roads were terrible when he was making his way home this morning. But the snow plow has been out in my community and my road has been plowed and salted.
The snow is over for us so getting to church tomorrow shouldn't be a problem. Just really cold tonight at 10°. One of those nights for sitting in front of the fireplace to keep warm.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #566 on Splitcoaststampers. Maura is our hostess and she has chosen pretty in pink, melon mambo, pumpkin pie as her color trio. 
melon mambo, pretty in pink, pumpkin pie

The shades of pink were screaming Valentine's Day to me so that's where I took my card. I used the pumpkin pie color very minimally with the addition of an enamel dot.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up collection "sending love". The  white hearts are outlined in gold and are from the Stampin'-Up January 2014 paper pumpkin kit as are the sentiment stamps. I had this card in my Pinterest gallery and used it for inspiration.

I stamped 3 of the hearts sentiments with melon mambo ink then added the die-cut love word in the 4th heart.

I finished this card by adding a paper bow cut in pink glitter paper. And that's my card for today. Time to close this post and get into my kitchen and get dinner made. I am going simple and making turkey tacos tonight.
So until next time.......God bless.
