Going For The Triple

Challenges that is. I finally got around to making my valentine cards. I have such a hard time making cards for this holiday for some reason. However that quickly changed when I saw this cute fella at my local Archiver's.

I am absolutely hooked on these little guys and would you believe it Archiver's have about 5 new sets with him in and they are so darn cute. My wallet is going to get a lot of use in the coming weeks I can tell. I had to walk away from there having just gotten one set and it hurt so bad.

1. So I figure that this card passes for this weeks 'A spoonful of sugar' which is 'Love is in the air' you had to make something for someone special and I made one of these for my hubby amongst others.

2. Also Cute card Thursdays' challenge is Valentines, which this card is. Hubby is due facial surgery 3 days before valentines day so I figured he would need cheering up and this little guy could make anyone smile (Hmm, I wonder if he's supposed to smile?)

3. The sketch I chose for this card was this weeks Splitcoast Stampers SC213. The only thing it's missing is the embellishment bottom right but thankfully it was optional so I decided to leave it off as I was a blank as to what to put there.

If I have time I think I might make some more of these. I think the kids would like to send them to their grand parents.

Cardstock is SU Pink Passion
DP both are Heidi Grace
Embellishments include Heart Brad from Making Memories and tiny dew drops from crystal stickers.
