More Valentine's Day Cards...

I know I created this sketch with a Mojo Monday sketch in mind, but, it apparently didn't work out well, as I can't find any sketch that remotely resembles this card!  Oops!!  I know I had a little trouble incorporating this image into a card because it was so darn long.  But, I thought it was worth it!  I have a family full of pilots and I thought this little hedgehog called, Hedgehopper, from Penny Black, was too cute to pass up!  I ordered this Cherry-O Creative Basics paper quite a while ago with Valentine's Day cards in mind.  I loved that it had some pink and red (really Tulip) in it, while still having my favorite earthy colors!  I think it worked out pretty good.

I could not find a clear stamp that said "Happy Valentines Day" anywhere!!!  CTMH has just ONE out of all the V-day sets in this catalog and numerous sets I've bought in the past, but, I don't love the rest of the set and wasn't going to spend $20 for ONE sentiment!  I looked all through the acrylics at Michael's and JoAnns before giving up and buying this rubber stamp from the dollar bin.  I had a lot of trouble with it though and not one of my cards has a straight sentiment on it!!  I'm spoiled having started out with acrylics!

Sorry for the lighting on these, I just couldn't get it right.  These are just a couple additional cards I did with the same Penny Black image.  I'm still working on my coloring with my Copics...these two could have been better, but, I think the first one came out pretty good at least!
