Inspired by.... Challenge 61 (Valentine Card)

Hello Delightful friends and family,
I'm back! Can you believe I've posted cards two days in a row.  Me either (ha!)
We are having a very beautiful day here in northern California, it's was icy this morning but the sun is out and it's been a gorgeous day although chilly.  Spent the afternoon helping my grandson age five  five and a half make valentine cards for his classmates (his mom and I ending up making most of them!)
Here is my card for the challenge at Inspired By.  This is my first time to play along and I only found this blog a week ago and I was inspired by the picture so I thought I'd join in on the fun. I kept it pretty simple but I was happy how it turned out. 
I'm also entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Blog Challenge  RCC77... Love is in the Air

My hearts are the Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Mini Hearts set and I sprayed them with Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray (Postman Red). The faux stitching was made with a fine tipped Sharpie.  I've added a strip of red gingham Fabric Tape and added a natural button (stash) and the bow is Sew Easy Fancy Floss Baker's Twine (primary colors).
The stamps: Inkadinkadoo (sentiment) and the little heart is from Taylored Expressions (Buddy Bear set). Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black;  Paper:  Card Stock (Bazzill red, black) and Neenah Bright White.  Embossing folder: ProvoCraft Cuttlebug (Polka Dots)

Well that's it for me!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening, I'm heading to the night service at our church, the keyboard is calling my name :-)
Thanks for visiting!

Let brotherly love continue.  Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.  Hebrews 13:2
