Here it is, Monday already.  Where do the weekends go?!?  This weekend was a great one for me.  My family was here on Sunday, and we celebrated my birthday.  What a blessed day it is when they are all here.

Today I am sharing the Valentine's Day card I made for our granddaughter.  I hope to share with you this week a few more Valentine's Day things I made on Saturday.  I am usually months behind, but I thought I'd go ahead and post these things now.  Here are the details:

Size:  5"x7"
Card Stock:  Recollections; Core'dinations; American Crafts
Patterned paper:  Wow.  That paper is old.  I am not sure.  I am guessing that I have had it for at least 5 years.
Love Banner:  I broke down and spent birthday money from last year (yes, I saved it for a year almost) and bought the Stampin' Up Pennant punch set.  It's really neat!  I printed the letters on my computer and then punched them.  The hearts are a punch.
Girl and dog silhouette:  A Child's Year Cricut cartridge cut at 3 1/2"
Scalloped circle:  Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Die (the smallest one).  I then embossed it using my Cuttlebug.
I used my Bow Easy to make the bow and added a mini rose from I Am Roses.

I think that's it!  I hope you like it.  Thanks if you take the time to leave a comment.  The folks that take that time are few and far between.  As those of you know who blog, it sure is tough to see that 150 visitors have been to your blog, and not one has left a comment.

Check out all of the neat hearts and cupids over at Bitten By The Bug 2.  I've entered my card in the challenge.  Want to join?
