Happy Hearts Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I thought today would be a good day to post the card I made for my "Seasoned CJ Survivors" challenge. Patti asked us all to create something that includes blue, brown, and green, and also a red heart.
For my card I used this adorable ladybug image from Gina K Designs ("Framed Friends" set). Isn't it sweet?? I colored the image with my Copics. As for the red heart, I didn't have any sparkly red heart brads, so I put red Stickles on a silver heart brad, and it worked just fine! Crafters are great improvizers :)
So, just for fun, here's a list of 10 things I love (not including family, friends or pets). Feel free to play along and post a list on your blog if you'd like:
Earl Grey tea
The smell of new patterned paper :)
Bread (in any form!)
Looking at snow that hasn't been walked on yet
The sound of my kids' belly laughs
Quiet time
Teaching kids or adults something they didn't know before
A good Indian curry!
That satisfying feeling at the end of a fantastic book
Long weekends!
