Lion Love

Good morning, and Happy Valentine's Day! What a beautiful sunny day it is here! Even with a new layer of snow on the ground, which many ARE NOT happy about, one can't help but enjoy the beauty of how it glistens in the sun. In celebration of Valentine's Day today, I came up with this sweet card. I received this wonderful lion image from a card kit swap on SCS. I believe this kit came from my dear friend Michelle. The sketch for this card came from a sketch challenge on High Hopes stamps. You see, after receiving this image that I immediately fell in love with, I had to go to High Hopes website and check them out. Whoa Nellie!! Can you say I want it all?!! Oh my, do they ever have some adorable stamps!! There's no way to choose a favorite. Just put it all on your wish list!!! Michelle, I hope you like what I did with the wonderful things you sent in the card kit. It was soooooo much fun, and now, I have a new addiciton! Bring on the card kits!
I got to use my new Martha Stewart lattice edge punch that DH got me for Valentine's Day. Shhhhh (he doesn't know that yet). LOL! Seriously, he'll be thrilled he got me something I like so much!! Thanks for stopping by and sharing a little bit of your day with me, and may the good Lord bless and keep you today and always!
Love ya!
Lorie
