Love Squared

I'm in a craze of creating Valentine's for a sale at my church early in February so I'm checking out all the blog challenges for inspiration.
I just got some new things from the latest Papertrey Ink release - the Wonderful Words Love Die and the pretty heart frame  from the mini set Hearts Squared.  The chevron stamp is from Woodgrain set from Waltzingmouse.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch for  my design.
 You'll be seeing more Valentines over the next few days!

I'm so glad the weekend is here!  Saturday night Kent and I are babysitting our grandnephew, 2 3/4 year old  James.  This is his class photo this year from daycare.  How cute is this?!  I think this is actually a photo for a jeans advertisement (!)
 His parents are going out to dinner, attending a swing dance class, and then dancing to a swing band, Eight to the Bar,  for the evening! How fun is that?!   Kent and I will be watching the Patriots game at their house until they get home -  GO Pats!!!

Stamps:  Woodgrain  - Waltzingmouse, Heart Squared - Papertrey Ink
Paper:  white, true black - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress Fired Brick
Accessories:  foam dots, black rhinestones - Kaiser, Wonderful words Love die - PTI

Love your card, Julia! I get the honor of babysitting my grand nephews too since all the grandparents live out of state. Always so much fun to play with the Littles and then get to go home to my Bigs! Hope you have fun!
