Hello. Happy Monday.  We didn't get the snow that they were predicting and I guess that was a good thing.  Even though, I really want us to have at least one good snow this winter.  We are running out of time.  Thankfully we didn't get the 3 feet of snow that some got.  If you did, I feel for you and I hope you are doing ok.

My nephew is a State Trooper in South Carolina.  I am always looking for policemen type stamps, I can get and use for him.  I saw this set from Doodle Pantry and I knew I had to have it.  I used yellow and black as my colors so it doesn't look like your typical Valentine's Day card.  But the corny sentiment on the inside will make it a good Valentine's Day card.  (The sentiment is " Happy to be a prisoner of your love!)  I had thought about adding a yellow heart to the front, but there really isn't room for one.

Both of the pattern papers are digital papers.  I don't use digital paper often, but I thought this matched the colors well.

I did finish the inside.  I used a black layer then another white one and put the sentiment on it.

I am using it for the following challenges:
   Crafty Sentiments - For The Boys
   Cheerful Sketches - Sketch #20
   Crafty Gals - For The Boys
   Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes
   Digital Sweet Challenges - Favorite Shape (a2)
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Hopefully I will be back later with another card.  Have agood one.
