Happy Valentine's Day

Hello there, and thanks for stopping by.  This should be a quick post.  I wanted to share this cute little card I put together using some goodies that arrived in the mail yesterday.  I recently won a challenge over at Little Scrap Pieces, and my sweet blog friend, Karen Franciola, sent me some of her sweet hand-dyed seam binding (light pink on this card) along with all these little goodies to help me create this card.  The only things I added from my own stash are the Lipstick Red Seam Binding and the heart patterned paper.  Everything else was from Karen!
As I've mentioned before, being part of the blogging and crafting world has been such a tremendous blessing in my life.  I've met some of the sweetest, most caring, and amazing people through doing what we all love.....creating!!  I will never take it for granted, and I praise God every for all the blessings in my life.  Thanks for being one.
I'm playing along at these challenges I love:
