Happy Valentine's Day

My DH and I celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday.  We spent all afternoon in beds together.  Beds is not a typo.  We went mattress shopping and spent ALL afternoon in and out of one bed after another and another and another.  We both came home with back aches, the very thing we are trying to eliminate by buying a new mattress.   We went out for dinner (didn't eat it out, but bought it out - if I don't have to cook or do dishes I am happy)  And for dessert we shared our one remaining Mallow Cup.  Ahhhhh....  

I hope all of you have a Valentine's Day to your liking, as we did!

In keeping with the occasion, here is a card to all my Friends and Followers (and a few challenges.)

A special thank you to Sherri Baldi for this adorable Bestie Image.  I was ill Mon in the middle of the night and while I waited for the room to stop spinning I stumbled upon her blog and found her adorable images.  By the time I went through her blog from start to finish, I was feeling inspired if not better.

The Challenges include:
Besties Challenge # 5 - include some pink
The Cuttle Bug Spot
Craft Your Passion Challenges 149 - My Valentine
Oldie but a Goodie - Red and Pink
ABC16 "Color Challenge" - Red, Pink, White/Vanilla
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge Blog - Challenge 39 - All About Love
Papertake Weekly - Hearts and Flowers
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 177 

The Old Back Porch - 52 Card Pickup 5.2 - which inspired me to combine all these challenges.

It really is a challenge combining themes, colors, a sketch, and including required images and sentiments, as well as following the rules of each challenge and entering by the required date.  I may have to go try out some more beds this afternoon!
