From the Heart Blog Hop

Hello once again! WOW! I didn't think I could participate in this swap because I'm trying to organize my garage; I've been working on it since New Year's Eve! AND because I'm VERY "single-task oriented," coming up with a Valentine's Day card was something my mind wouldn't let me concentrate on!!!!! How's that for an excuse? :}
But. . . wait. . . then I remembered that I had done a Valentine's Day card for a monthly swap I'm in, soooooooooooooooooooo here it is--
Cute-ums huh? I LOVE that border stamp!!!! It's in the Wonderful News set, T-3410, in the TAC Fall Supplement. Matter of fact, I LOVE every stamp in that set!!!! Go check it out and see for yourself--that set is the DA BOMBIE!
I colored Lucy, the mouse, using Copic markers. If you don't have Lucy, R-2055--what are you waiting for? Christmas? Christmas is gone, done, bye bye!!!! And you need this set NOW!!!!! hee hee, sorry, got carried away!
Then I took my Stardust Clear Gelly Pen and "drew a line and smeared it" to get a subtle glittery effect over her. I kept doing this very technical technique until she was covered in subtle glitter!
"Happy heart day" is from the Cherry Thoughts set, R-2043, another very cute-ums, must-have set!
Well, there you go--my From the Heart Blog Hop card!!! This has been short and sweet but I hope loooooong on inspiration!
For now. . . I gotta run. . . the garage is calling ma name. . .

I love how you added shimmer to your image with the stardust gel pen, and the scored and sanded background piece is very sophisticated looking.
