Kiss Me!!...High Hopes

Today I have a Valentine for my hubby to show you. It is a little lacy and sparkly...but no flowers!! This Cute froggy is from High Hopes. The sentiment is a Whimsy Holiday Circle Postmark.

The image is colored with copics as a base... prismacolor pencils and h20's on top.

I've managed to hit a few challenges with this card.... High Hopes Challenge - "Valentines" Friday Sketchers - "Sketch" Stamp and Create - "Love" One Crazy Stamper Challenge Blog - "Pink" Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - "Corny Valentines Sayings"

It is still very cold in our part of the world. Suppose to warm up over the next few days though. I hope so. I gave my Buddy a haircut yesterday....he goes out and back in the house doing his business very fast today..LOL!

I hope everyone has a Wonderful and Happy Valentines Day! I wish you all lots of Sweets and Hugs!! Thank you so much for visiting and your lovely comments!!

"A little lacy and sparkly" it may be, but it has a frog on it, so that qualifies for a bona-fide man card! LOL This is darling! I was so thrilled to see you left a comment on my blog the other day. I was so honored! Hope you are well! Best, Curt
