Hello friends!  I know that Valentine's Day has come and gone but I wanted to share the Valentine card I made for my grandson.

This adorable image is Doodle Garden I'm Raptor Round Your Finger.  I have to say that I am loving the new Doodle Garden collection over at My Favorite Things Stamps ... they're so sweet!  I colored this cutie with copics and colored pencils and used some Glamour Dust on the hearts.  I don't normally use glitter on male cards but my grandson is only 7 so I thought I could get away with it :)  I used the MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers Stax to cut out the fishtail banner.  The little tag and heart were cut using the MFT Notched Tag Die & Stamp set.  I'm using the sketch from the MFT Guest Designer Contest over at SplitcoastStampers.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
