A Card for my Newest Valentine - Jake

Good morning!  I am excited to get this little blog started, so I am happy to share my first card.  I struggled with my valentine cards a bit this year because I am currently living in two places--back and forth between Texas and Singapore.  I love stamping and using my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  However, I can't find the mineral spirits here, so I am forced to sharpen my skills with my Copic markers.  I still need lots of practice, but I am getting better.  I love this Little Boy stamp from Clear Art Stamps!  It reminds me of my "Dick and Jane" book as a little girl.  Here is my card for my newest little valentine --- Jake.


Things I used:
Clear Art Stamps - Little boy
Copic Markers
Paper - BasicGrey Sweet Threads
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Ovals and heart

Thanks for looking!
