Squeeze-A-Palooza #4, Valentine's Day!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am finally getting to post in 2013--yea!  Who knew the new year would get off to such a running start?  So for my first post of the year, I was able to join in on the monthly challenge from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  I had the pleasure of meeting both Ryan and Shannon when they did a make n take a few months ago, and they are two super nice ladies!  I have been hoping to have time to participate in one of their challenges for a while, and I have had the card made for a few days--finally found time to sit down and write up a post!  And my daughter liked the challenge so much she made a card too :).

So this month's challenge was to create something inspired by the following photos, which you can find here.
They also offer a free digi stamp along with their challenge, and I liked it so much that I just had to use it.  So here is my Valentine's Day card:

Stamps:  Fresh Squeezed Digi Stamp (see link above)
Cardstock:  Pink Pirouette (SU), Vintage Cream (PTI)
Patterned Paper:  Jillibean Soup
Misc.  Ribbon, Chalking around focal point; free font (Kimberly Geswein fonts)

And here is my daughter's card:
Stamps:  Fresh Squeezed Digi Stamp
Cardstock:  Stamper's Select White, Hibiscus Burst (PTI)
Misc.  Copic Markers, glitter ribbon, cuttlebug embossing folder
