Happy Valentine's Day

Greetings, friends! I have been busy making Valentine's Cards for my daughter's 3 shops and I needed some new inspiration. I usually check out the current challenges to find it and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #455 was the perfect jumping off point!
I am also submitting to CCEE2201- New and NBUS Challenge #34 for I have had a set of stamps which I've never used from SugarPea Designs. It was from their Caring Hearts Special Release 2016 called Caring Critters. I don't know why I've never used it. It has the cutest characters- a monkey, a puppy, a lion and a moose.


Today's post will feature the monkey but I made similar cards with all the little animals.
I started with MFT Stamps' Lots of Heart Stencil and ink blended Distress Inks through it with my Scrapbook.com Foam Blending Tools. I also die cut a piece of Hero Arts 100# Dove White card stock with a Spellbinder Die Rings Around the Circle:
I stamped the little monkey with Memento Black Ink which is a great black ink for use with alcohol markers.
The inside of the card has a great sentiment from the Scrapbook.com All Heart set of 7 stamps. I've used this set many times in making the Valentine's Day cards.

One more challenge to enter called Time Out Challenges - In Love!
A simple card, but one that I love. I want to thank the challenges for their inspiration and to you my friends, for stopping by today!
