Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is in the air! Wink, wink! I hope that you are planning a wonderful Valentine's Day or have one planned by your significant other. I was upstairs in my stamping nook all day, trying to make some headway through my March CDS Sneak Peeks, and I did finish one, but then I wanted to make a card for the love of my life, my darling husband, Tom. And wouldn't you know...he never comes up to my stamp nook when I'm stamping, but tonight...he came up 3 times! Do you think he knows??? ; ) Anyway, I have never made him a card and thought that I'd surprise him, and besides with 44" of snow on the ground, it was hard to get out and about to do any card or present shopping. The image is a digi from Phindy's Place and when I saw this image, I knew that I had to have it for my Valentine's Day card! Phindy has some wonderful illustrations and I know I'll be visiting her store again! Okay, here's the deets:

Linda, this is so cute and I thank you for the inspiration. I also have this image and was struggling with how to colour the fireplace (mine at home is all white so no help there). My hubby also kept walking in while I was making his Valentine - must be related to your husband:)
