A Valentine for my significant other...

Ok, a day late for this but you know what.. it's so cute therefore.. worth the wait. :) I made this for my signifcant other for Valentine's day. I used my new LOTV stamp that my dear friend Angie gave to me. This is such a fun image to color, as all their stamps.

Yesterday I went to Fountian Valley to the iCopic store. I met Ashley the owner and she's just the sweetest. Her and I have been emailing for about a month. I'm going to be teaching a Copic class on March 12th, if anyone is in the Southern California area and would like to attend. She will have more info on the iCopic Blog this week. I'm soooooo excited!! While I was there I was able to get some refills and markers for my Valentine's present! YAY me!!!!

I just love doing this background. Suzanne has an amazing tutorial on her blog. I was lucky enough to see her in action at CHA. She has amazing Copic skills!! This is also like Angie's distress background, which I LOVE but feel as if I have't got that down yet... LOL!
Here's my card...
