Fun with Hearts

Hello Everyone! Happy Wednesday! I must admit, I am not the biggest fan of Valentine's day, mainly because it is my husband's birthday and I want it to just be his birthday... But, I set aside my "eh - ness" and made a Valentine's day card. I do love this dp, and I do love this frog! He is from ths February new release from Clear Dollar Stamps called Hoppy Frogs, it is a set of 8 for $7.99. Click HERE to go check it out at the Clear Dollar Stamps Store.
** Inspiration alert!! ** I got the idea to have the frog holding up the circle & heart from my fellow CDS DT member, the very talented Barb. I just thought it was such a clever idea I had to try it!
My favorite weekly challenge has to be Sweet Sketch Wednesday, the ladies there are so great, both in their creative inspirations and their kind comments.
Not suprisingly, this card follows the Sweet Sketch Wednesday #88 sketch.

This card also qualifies for a few other challenges, so what the heck, I will throw my hat in the ring for a few more challenges.

Stampin Royalty #58 -- Hearts Hearts and More Hearts
Crafty Creations #105 -- Three Little Words
Crafty Cardmakers #39 -- Hearts
PaperTake Weekly -- Have a Heart

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Take a look around! I cherish your comments, thoughts and suggestions!

Very cute Valentine card! I love your sentiment too! I have not been able to find this heart punch this year. Maybe it will show up after Valentines. It is perfect for your card!

Hi Christi!!!!! Love, love, love this frog set!!!! And having him hold up the heart, fabulous! You're going to laugh, but I'm working on a card, using this very same frog, holding up several smaller hearts!!!!!! And I got this idea off someone else's blog! How clever are we!!!!! Thanks for joining us and sharing at SSW.

Just love your card. The frog is so cute.
I admit I have the same problem since DH and DS share the same b-day. We deliberately celebrate them a week apart so each can have a special day. Why not move Valentine's to another day?
