Good morning!
I am yawning up a storm this morning!!  We were so busy running errands yesterday and visiting with my in-laws, that time just slipped away from me.  We got home and everyone so tired or already asleep, that I just called it a night.  So if you see some minor spelling errors, I apologize!

Today at SweetStamps, we have a lovely challenge for you.
This weeks theme is all about:
 For my card today I created my very own swing card.
I have to be honest and tell you that I winged the measurements and everything and it came out so AMAZING.  I really love the way it came out.  Although, this card is HUGE!!  I have to make a custom box for it.  But it had to be big, because of the Cheery Lynn Dies I was using.
Isn't that just AWESOME!!  I am really excited, can you tell!! LOL
I have done several Valentine cards already and wanted to switch up the color theme for this card.
And my MIL loves receiving my cards, so it will be a perfect anniversary gift.
All the paper is from PTI, the image is Wedding Swans, colored with Copics.
There is splashes of Stardust glitter glue all over the butterflies and flowers. 
This is the inside, when you open the card open!!  SWEET!!!  :)
Again, using Cheery Lynn Designs and Stardust.

Well I really hope you like my card as much as I do and if not, it's ok too!!
So if you are still making Valentines Day cards, please make sure to and pay us a visit.  Love to see your creations.
