Valentine Countdown: 13 Days…..

Hi All! Welcome to our Countdown to Valentine's Day. It's 13 days and counting! So what do you think of the purple glittery goodness on today's calendar? That's the new Purple Shimmer Trim that Close To My Heart is offering in their Spring/Summer Catalog (that just went live yesterday, by the way). Sparkle and purple…What's not to love?!

Today's project is a very simple little Valentine card that features Close To My Heart's February Stamp of the Month: Wild About Love.

I'm sending my family some Valentine's Day gifts, so I wanted a simple card to go with it. The base of the card is cut at 51/2 x 4 inches from Kraft Cardstock. The fox is stamped in Saddle Exclusive ink and the hearts and "Love" are stamped in Cranberry Exclusive ink. The "Love" stamp is from a retired stamp set. I colored in the fox, flower, and foreground with my watercolor pencils, and added a little Aqua Dot to the center of the flower for a pop of color.

Here's a close-up:

Hope you enjoyed this little card. Remember, the Close To My Heart's Stamp of the Month can be purchased for just $5 with a $35 order, or you can purchase it on its own for $17.95.

Coming up tomorrow we have a special addition to our Valentine Countdown: a Blog Hop with the Rose Blossoms! Be sure to tune in and get a glimpse of some of the new product that Close To My Heart has released with the Spring/Summer 2014 Catalog. You really don't want to miss it!

Until tomorrow then….
