A little Love...

 So last month I mentioned I was getting pretty excited about Valentine's Day. Well it's official! I've decided to make my husband a little Valentine's card each day leading up to the 14th. 
So here's my first card. I made it yesterday and was really hoping to get it posted by the end of the day, but I have been under the weather and life happens.
I started but running the Embosslit through my Big shot a couple times, so I had a variety of hearts to choose from. Among them was a scrap of Crumb Cake, which I trimmed and roughed the edges with my scissors.
I got the idea of using the leftover frame of the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit as part of the card from Carrie Gaskin's card HERE. Isn't it a great idea?!! 
My colors were inspired by the ColorQ's challenge this week of using Real Red, Basic Black, Regal Rose, Kraft & White. Well, as you can see, my colors are a little off (I just used up some scraps on my desk), but I have about 3 days to try again!
This card uses Cherry Cobbler and Pretty in Pink instead.
  I had a scrap of Pink Pirouette DSP, so I trimmed enough to layer behind my focal point. I needed a little more texture and decided to use White Baker's Twine to tie in with the Textured White card base (of which I roughed the edges.). Yes, my sentiment from the P.S. I Love You set is crooked. ugh. Oh well. It's handmade. ;)
I stamped the heart of hearts on the inside and wrote right on top of it. 
My youngest was of course looking over my shoulder half the time, and wanted one for herself, so I made her one with her favorite colors. I'll be making my two older kids their's today and sharing them later.
Off to stamp!
