Keys to my HEART

Oh Happy Thursday Ladies (and gents)! I am so sorry for not posting the last few days, the time has gotten away from me. I had some school things to attend and then some errands to run, new clothes to buy, that sort of thing and I have not been on my own blog!~ Plus, it is so darned cold here in Michigan the last 2 days- below ZERO gals! That is just too cold for me. Anyways- you didn't come here to hear about my weather................

So today's card is for the Friday Sketcher Challenge and it is a card that I think that I will gie to my sweetie for Valentine's Day. As I have mentioned we are not Valentine Day people, don't exchange gifts or anything but this card is cute and so fitting for Jim. I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card and the DP is from basic grey. I layered the brown DP on SU mellow moss as well as using mellow moss for the scallop matte for my main image- which I did with my nestabilities! (oh, have you seen all the new ones coming out- oh boy!). I colored Edwin with his roses with my copics using browns and greens. I know it is not Valentine colors but I think that it is a bit more masculine for a man this way. I hope you enjoy it- my sentiment I made up and printed with the computer!

Oh and I almost forgot- I have some exciting news that I will post about tomorrow! So come back and see what is going on.
Have a FAB day!
