A Sweet Little Valentine

Super Bowl Sunday, Go Colts! I need to hurry up and make a ATC kit for myself to work on during the game. I only watch for the commercials. I whipped this one up this afternoon. My 4 year old has officially became my stamping buddy. If I'm in my loft, so is she. I am finally getting some use out of the "seconds images" I have. You know, when you stamp and part of the image doesn't come out right, or you bump the stamp. She gets her set of markers, stamps, and ink and gets to work. I have little purple finger print everywhere. She asked me to make her a card so I told her this one was for her. As soon as I had photographed it I gave it to her. She said "I need to fix one thing." She flipped it over wrote her name on the back and drew a picture. Then opened it up and glued big bling inside. You would have been proud of me, I didn't say a thing. I watched holding my breath as she upgraded my card. She is quite pleased with her work.
This is Mercy Kerins sketch for Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm. It's also my entry for Anyone 4 Anya's Good Enough to Eat Challenge. I thought the colors looked like strawberrys and cream. Also, Pile it On's Challenge To The One You Love, Creative Card Crew Valentine Challenge , Double Dutch Be My Valentine & Anya Ink's Valentines challenge. That's 6 challenges in one.
