You 'Teal' My Heart!

I went shopping yesterday and got some beautiful stamps for Easter--a set from Inkadinkado that includes the classic 'praying hands' image. YAY! I've been looking for it for months, and even though this one is a little bit smaller than the one I originally wanted, I'm SO happy to have found it.

Now I just need to figure out which Maggies I want to get next, and get my order in to Diana at Magnolia-licious! So many to choose from! And to start the planning on my next "Christmas All Year Long" card for the blog hop this month. Check out the January cards at Christmas All Year Long.

Just a quick Valentine today--clean and simple! Bright and cheery colors on such a dreary day in NW Ohio . . .

The background is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder, with the panel reversed so the dots go to the back instead of sticking out front. The sentiment panel is shown below the card--I outlined it with a text box outline, then edged the cut edge with my BG13 marker.

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment if you'd like!

Supplies: Cardstock--GP white, Prism black, and DCWV salmon pink; dotted paper by Doodlebug Design (1826 swimming pool swiss dot); Ribbon--Offray black; Stamp--Valentine Tilda (Magnolia-licious); Heart punch by SU!; corner round punch by EK Success; inside sentiment computer generated (font--St. Nicholas); and Copic markers as shown below.
