I love you so much

I am so happy that I am able to post today.
I have been down for the count with one butt kicking migraine. 
It had me in bed for three days...YES... three days.
To top this off, I am coughing, I have the chills, loss of appetite...etc.
So what does that all sound like?  The FLU...

So I'm feeling a little better...but I'm just happy that I work ahead and this card was finished earlier in the week.  Or else...well...there would be no posting for me today.
So let's get to it.
Today at Sentimental Sundays we have a great challenge for you this week. 
I hope you aren't tired of seeing red and hearts..
This weeks theme is all about LOVE!!
We are being sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps and we got to play with some amazingly gorgeous stamps.
Today, I am playing My Funky Valentine Betty.
And the inside of the card.
Isn't she the sheekish thing you've seen?!?! I love everything about her...From her layered coat and ruffles, to the rivets in her hair and on the chocolate box.  Super gorgeous image.  The sentiment is from PTI and the paper is from MME.

So I hope that you will join us this week and show us some love and see all the amazing creations the design team created for you as well.  Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

  7. Your card is awesome and great colouring on the image.

    Hope you are feeling better soon. I suffered with wicked migraine headaches until I stopped eating gluten. It didn't happen overnight but after a few months I realized I hadn't had any. It could be worth a try if you have a lot.
