A Valentine..... that I didn't want to give up!

Hello everyone! I have a Valentines card that my daughter asked me to make for her teacher. I REALLY didn't want to give it up. I think it came out adorable! I used the Stampavie Kitty and Puppy and masked Tilda with many hearts behind them. Isn't it cute!!!! I will be doing this again with this Stampavie stamp. They go great with Tilda.

I hope you have a great day.... I'm off to... make something :)
