From Stampin' Up!'s Occasions mini catalog, comes the stamp set Take It To Heart.  Here are my top three reasons to love this set:

  1.  It has coordinating framelits (the Hearts Collection).
  2.  You can use a variety of color combinations with it.
  3.  There are plenty of places to add bling/glitter!

Today's card really hits me differently today than it did yesterday when I made it.  I thought I was just using a sketch to create a Valentine's Day Card.  Then this morning at Bible study, someone had made cards up for us to send to the widows and widowers in our church.  We each grabbed a name and a card and wrote away.  I was so touched by this that hours later, I am still thinking about it.  It is such a simple idea, make cards and send to those that may not receive a Valentine's card.  After I got home, I started making a quick lunch, and let's see if you get what I mean by this… I was standing in front of the sink, rinsing out my coffee mug, and while I was there, I really wasn't there, as demonstrated by the large amount of water that is still all over the kitchen countertop right now.  And I thought of the card that I was going to post today.  For some reason, yesterday as I was creating it, I kept thinking to myself, "Keep it simple, you don't know how many of these you may need to make."  And then I told myself, "That is crazy, by the time I make Valentines for Emily's classmates and bake the cupcakes for the class party (my attempt at being super mom), I won't want to see anymore Valentine's until 2013."  Then today happened and everything is different. 

So here is a challenge I am giving to you:

  1. Make three Valentine's cards. 
  2. Send this card out to three people that may not receive any Valentine's cards and let them know that you are thinking of them.

Here is the card that I will be doing this with:
