"Love is Sweet" Clearly Inspired Challenge #21

I know I keep saying it, but I just can't believe we are in a new year already! My hope is that everyone have a blessed and prosperous 2011. The begining of a new year also means it is time for the January Clearly Inspired Challenge!
This month it's a THEME challenge: "Love is Sweet". You can intreperet that as Love, Valentines or a Candy theme.

For my card, I went in the 'Valentines' direction. I chose to use this great stamp set called We Go Together Like illustratred by the talented Trudy. I love the images in this set, and I made this card with my sweet DH in mind. He loves PB&J but only with grape jelly.

Great post and AWESOME card! That is so hilarious that Jason is particular about his jelly. . .Jim is too! It can be either grape or strawberry, but the strawberry cannot have seeds, lol.
