Be My Sweetie Valentine Card

Hello crafty friends,

Hope everyone is having a great week so far and getting ready for the weekend.  I know I am looking forward to the weekend, all I can say is thank GOD tomorrow is finally Friday…yay!!  I have a bit of a busy weekend planned.  Other than my usual household chores (boooo…lol) I really need to get my crafting space organized…again. It gets completely out of control so quickly, especially since my crafting space is so tiny and actually serves as a dining/living/office/etc (well, you get the picture.) Yes, it is very much a multi-purpose room…lol.  I think I may even have to purge some items but we’ll see.  Anyway, let’s get on to today’s project.  I made another Valentine’s Day card and I will be entering this card for 2 different challenges.  I wanted to use a cupcake cut…..I just LOVE cupcakes, they’re so yummy!!  So here are all the details of my card.
