Hi guys. Did everyone have a great Monday? I hope that wherever you live your weather is being kind. It seemed that every time we turned on the weather channel last week that just about everyone in the United States was either getting mega snow or ice or both. Then in Australia there was the horrendous flooding. I hope that you are all safe and sound and that life is starting to get back to normal. We had a wonderfully sunny day here today and it actual got up to 55 by noon. The lawn looks so ugly, but there isn't any snow left on it at all. It sure gives you a false sense that Spring is on it's way. I know it's not over, but I guess we'll see soon enough. heehe...
Ok let me got onto my card for today. I felt like making up some simple but sweet Valentines this weekend, so today's card is staying with that theme. I wanted to make this one for a couple of my friends that I don't get to see very often anymore as they moved out of town. I think that they will enjoy this. They have always loved my cards I made for them both. Of course it wouldn't be a couples card with Anya and Ian on it, so I used the 50's sweethearts to complete this on. I am really happy with how it turned out. You will notice that I tried out a new color for my skin tone on Anya. I wanted her to be a little fairer skinned than Ian. If any of you have skin color tips let me know. I would so enjoy hearing what you use.
Well that's it for me today. Have a super day, and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Awww, this is so sweet and I love the BG paper for the background! Very pretty card and I so admire the inside of your cards, you're awesome!
I wish we didn't have any snow left but other than under the trees and the parts that have been shoveled we still have the snow...but it is a lot less deep now! :)
