Crafty Gals Challenge Valentine Recipe Card

It is the 5th of the month, so I am back with the 3rd Challenge of the Crafty Gals!  We are a group of bloggers who have monthly challenges, caring comments & fun chit chat on SCS—our favorite stamping site to visit.

Lela posted the February challenge--"Recipe for A Valentine"
February is the month of LOVE and what could be better than showing off our idea of a "Recipe for A Valentine".  Last year DH made me chocolate dipped strawberries. He found the recipe on-line and they were fabulous. It was wonderful but a surprise as usually he gets me roses. What makes the perfect Valentine surprise? Is it candy, flowers, love notes? Let's see your Recipe for sharing LOVE. Don't forget to add a Heart or 2 on our project.

I found a stamp in my Valentine/Hearts drawer that I had forgotten about.  It is a D. Morgan stamp and in the last month, I was reintroduced to her line of stamps, thanks to my friend Darlene.  We created a card with one of her images for mystery swap—see post on January 18th.  I love the look of her stamps, but am a bit nervous inking them up and actually coloring the image.  This one was pretty simple to color, but I love the look and I really like her designs.  Happy Valentine’s Day—a bit early!
