Valentine Defined

Yesterday I went to my friend Heather's 40th/9th birthday party.  She's a 9 year b.c. survivor, and an amazingly strong woman.  Anyway, her party theme was to have all her crafty friends get together and share what they are creating.  What a neat idea!  I brought a simple card to make, for anyone that was interested, but made sure it used the Big Shot several different ways, since she just got one. :-D
Heather chose the stamp set, and since I knew pink is her favorite color, this was the card we made.  Three ladies had never stamped before and were delighted at how quick and easy it was to put this together, and how nice the completed card looked.  (I think a couple of them will be coming to the Occasions Mini Open House next week, too. Woohoo!)
Stamps: Valentine Defined (image), Filled With Love (sentiment)
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette textured, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Pretty in Pink Classic, Certainly Celery Classic, Regal Rose Classic, Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker
