7 Days of Love - Day 1: Try Again Cupid!!!

Hi Crafty Friends!

This week my friend and fellow DT member Jen Shults and I decided to countdown to Valentine’s Day with 7 days of Love Cards! Each day this week we will be celebrating by posting a card all about love on our blogs! I love this picture of us taken in the fall of last year at a Taylored Expressions event called Share Joy. It was so great to finally meet her in person after drooling over her amazing creations and sketches on her blog!! 
For this week - we also decided to each create a sketch and a color inspiration to use in case we need a little extra mojo ;) Check them out here:

Stop by our blogs each day for a fun little love surprise!

For today's card I thought I would start out the 7 Days of Love Week with a little Valentine's Day Comedic humor!!! Haven't you ever had at least one Valentine's Day where you are a little annoyed by Cupid?? I can count so many - and this sentiment that this little guy says seriously makes me laugh - "Try again Cupid (you're aim stinks!)" -- aaahahahaaaa!!! That just cracks me up!! I used the first sketch for my inspiration to create this card and then splashed on some sequins and a bit of faux stitching at the end:

Well - this Valentine Grumpling stamp set is seriously adorable and has so many awesome sentiments am so excited to make lots of cards with it! I have had this stamp set for awhile and haven't had a chance to stamp it and so I was so excited to pull it out and take it for a spin!! Here is another view of it:
