Thought for the day -

Happy Monday morning to ya'll!  Well another day of no school here in middle TN.  I so want to call in this morning but I don't think it will go over real big with the powers to be.  They really take their jobs much to seriously, haha.  The roads are still a mess but I guess I will head in- pray for me. (I'm not kidding- these drivers scare me!)  Friday I left work as soon as I saw the 1st snow flake. A few hours after I got home there was a 12 car pile up on the interstate not too far from my exit! It makes me so nervous!

Today for Sunshine Monday I have made a little valentine card for my funny little valentine, Jordan.  I made it as masculine as I could, haha.  Nothing to girlie cuz girlie stuff is yuck!
My inspiration today came from the sketch over at this weeks Stampin for the Weekend challenge.

I love a card with lots of layers and this sketch definitely provided that.  Todays image from Sunshine & Giggles is called Puppy Love- a perfect image for a masculine (boy) card.

For my base I have used black cardstock. The red paper with the black distressing is basic grey.  My x's and o's is by Little Yellow Bicycle and the word paper (which you can no longer read) is by BoBunny.  My sentiment is computer generated and my letter J sticker (you know how kids love personalized stuff, haha) is by Creative Imaginations.  I used a paw punch that I purchased a few years back and found today still in its package.  I knew I would get around to using it one day.
Here is a close up view of my little puppies.

I am also entering the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar which this week is a free style theme and the Cupcake Crafts Challenge which is 4 legged friends.

Be sure to visit the design teams blog to see what giggles they have in store for you today.

Hope you all have lots of Sunshine & giggles in your day today.
