Love you

When a cold knocks at my door I tend to stay in but it is killing me that my big headache and runny nose keeps me from crafting.  I spent most of my time in bed watching TV and DVDs this weekend but nonetheless made a Valentine's Day card:

I had bought the patterned paper before I took off for my family gathering but this is the first time I use it.  The two hearts were cut with Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge at 1.5" while "love" is an independent die from Memory Box.  It is part of the peace, joy, love collection and I think "love" is perfect for a V-day project.  The "you" is part of another Memory Box die "thanks you".  I love that die for thank you cards - you could snip off the "s" to make "Thank you" or keep it for "thanks".  Now that I use just the "you" part for my sentiment, it is similar to masking off your stamps to create a new image.  Who doesn't like to have more mileage of the craft supplies?

I must give credit to the sketch at Atlantic Heart Sketches - it is a sketch that provides lots of opportunities!

My card is linking up to the following challenges:
Atlantic Heart Sketches - see sketch above
