Raccoon Valentine

Good morning, and here's another of the Valentine cards done for DD...and I hope she has the package in her hot little hands by now. If you look closely, you'll see I'm using snippets of card stock from cards shared earlier. I liked this houndstooth pattern and think it looks nice with the red. 
- Great Impressions image, colored with copics, die cut with S/B Labels 3. (Used some black WoS on Rocky's black mask & body)

- 6x6 paper pack (think it was Authentique - Pretty).

- MS heart border punch. Tiny hearts on bottom are the cut out bits.

- hand cut the faux mat and the fish tail banners.

- Heart brad & card front embossed with a hearts EF.

That's it! Hope you aren't getting totally sick of seeing Valentine cards. Next up is St. Paddy's Day. I promise, there won't be quite so many of those! Have a wonderful day and come again when you can. Big Hugs.

    Light snow so far, but the heaviest stuff is coming overnight. It may miss us for the most part, because it appears the heaviest accumulations are going to be in NJ, DE, and New England, mainly Boston area. You won't hear me complain about it shifting east of us for the most part!

  6. What a seriously cute card Mary!! Love the red and gray combination you have going there.

  7. Fun Valentine's card. I like that image and the snippet of hounds tooth does look good! DD is sure to have loved this - who wouldn't! Hope you are staying warm. Hugz
