Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop January 2011

I am so excited to be participating in the first Taylored Expressions Blog Hop of 2011!  This month's theme is Valentine's/Love, and I used Sankari's cool sketch:
I altered mine a bit, though, and turned the sketch on it's side and moved the bow.  Here is my card:

I Love You
Although it is hard to see, the pink heart is glittered!  I'm hoping to give this to my hubby for Valentine's day, hopefully he won't think it is too pink!
Stamps:  Animals in Love a la Carte, Fresh Flowers (TE)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock:  Pink Pirouette (SU), New Leaf  and Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Patterned Paper:  Doodlebug Petite Prints
Accessories:  I-rock, ribbon (SU), glitter (Making Memories), Copic markers

My daughter K decided to play along for this hop as well--here is her card!

Stamps:  Feelin' Groovy (TE)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, Grape Jelly (Memento)
Cardstock:  Plum Pudding, Raspberry Fizz, Stamper's Select White (PTI)
