Simply Valentine's

Last Friday, I spent a good part of the day out at my parents' house and decided to take some of my stamping stuff with me, so that I could "play" and make cards! My husband was going to be working late (as he has been all week), so I thought it might be nice to be around company for the day and let the kids play with their cousins. Having some time to enjoy a little crafting time rather than doing the household chores for a change was needed! Funny how I have to leave my house to make it happen!

Most of the supplies I brought with me were for Valentine's Day cards as I was looking to get some inspiration and work on projects and cards for upcoming events. I am still waiting on my Filled with Love stamp set that was on backorder, which should be on my doorstep by Monday night, so I had to work with some other Valentine stamp sets while I wait.

This first card, I was inspired by the following sketch from Create with Connie & Mary (CCMC 132). This is the first sketch I've participated in, but I loved having the inspiration! Go check out the wonderful creations. I went a little simple with my card, which is more the trend with me anyway, but I love how it turned out!
