Love is in the Air

I have been seeing tons of Valentine cards around blogland lately. I normally only make a couple of cards at most but I decided to play with this new stamp that I got at Hobby Lobby the other night. For some reason as soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted it. I think it's cute with them hiding behind the umbrella. I have decided to make more Valentine friendship cards to send out next month. I used to be much better at actually sending cards to people. I have a couple of boxes of cards that I need to send. Lots of people could use some extra cheer in their mailbox, I just need to do a better job of following through. I don't think I will be sending this one out to a friend because obviously this couple is more than friends so I think I will save this one for someone special! This was another card that we made in the Copic class I taught this weekend. All the cards we made used colors from the R0 series of colors. The doily and the rhinestone heart both came from Hobby Lobby too. 
Copic Colors used:  Umbrella - E50/E53/E55,   Dress - R08/G24,   Jeans - B21/B23/B24,   Shoes E59/C5,   Shirt - G21, G24

I wish we had a Hobby Lobby here in CT! I bought a ton of stuff in October in TN!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on the Valentine's cards. This card is beautiful!
I love how you add what Copic colors you used. I'm very much a novice when it comes to coloring and my supply of markers is limited, so it's nice to see what numbers are used in things.
