My Valentine Date with Daddy

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is staying warm. We here in New England are under a deep Artic Freeze. It is the coldest temps that we have seen in 6 years. It is going to warm up a bit tomorrow and with the warmer temps is coming another BIG snowstorm on Wednesday. I am expecting we will have school canceled on Thursday. Pretty soon we are going to run out of "Snow Days" and we still have our snowiest month coming up!
Being Tuesday it is also time for another great challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we have a color challenge for y0u This week we also have a fabulous sponsor One Stop Card Crafts

They are offering one lucky player this week a One Stop Card Crafts Gift Certificate. How awesome is that!!! We can't wait to see all your fabulous creations!
I made this card to offer it to a friend for her daughter. Every year her husband takes out their daughter (6 yrs old) for a Valentine date. I thought she would like a card to remember the special time.

The ladies really did a wonderful job on their creations this week hoping to inspire you, be sure to stop by their blogs.
