Happy Valentine's Day!  I made this card for my lovely daughter who is off in college.  Her name is Cassandra though most of my family calls her Cassasha.  It's so hard to have your kids grow up and move away.  Cassandra is attending a school about a nine hour drive from me.  I don't get to see her very often at all.  She is doing great and will graduate soon.  Then off to graduate school.  Will it ever end?  Anyway, I miss her a lot so thought I would make her this card.

This image is from Teddy Bo & Co.  They are celebrating a birthday and offering lots of candy.  Hop on over and check them out.  Lots of cute bears.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes markers and a little Stickles from Ranger.  The paper is from Bazzill, Fred She Said, The Paper Co. and some generic stock.  The sentiment is my own with a Marvy heart punch.  The little swirl is from Sizix.  All the paper came from my box o scraps, even the flourish.  I had cut it out a while ago and didn't use it.  Finally the ribbon is from Martha.  

I have entered into the following challenges:
Teddy Bo & Co.
Lexi's Creations #56
My Grafico #119
Robyn's Fetish #90
One Stitch At A Time #96
Pan Pastel #1
Hiding in My Craft Room #29

Well wish me luck.  You can never have too much to play with.  Hope you enjoyed my little valentine. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
