Helping Friends Gruffies Valentine Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card for a few challenges.  Honestly, I'm not a big Valentine fan, but I do my best to be festive for my girls for most holidays - including this day of "love."

This year I made a card for my bestie (who is also single) and I plan to surprise her at work with a  box of chocolates.  With her kids all grown up...well, I have a feeling they are so into their lives right now that they might forget their mama.  So hopefully I will put a smile on her face.  Of course I'm not going all lovey-dovey, but I have the required red, heart, and inside reads "happy valentine's day."  Sentiments are from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit and that scribble heart is a Sizzix die cut.

This Gruffies stamp is SO us.  We might not see each other often, but we are there for each other in times of need....or when we really need a margarita!

So, this will be entered in the following challenges: House-Mouse and Friends: Love, Dragonfly Journeys: Red, and CardzTV Challenge #31: Anything Goes.

Wow! Your coloring is fantastic. I think it's so nice that you made this for your bestie and you're bringing her a sweet. Kids do tend to be busy with their lives and can forget about mama. I'm sure she'll love it. I do. Thank you for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends
