Great catch Valentine

I've been searching for something to "perch" my cards on for a long time.  Just something that wouldn't be noticed but would elevate my card to capture the best light.  Then it hit me, the top of a scented candle jar would be perfect!  It's glass and not too high and I have tons since I can't bring myself to throw out the jars when the candle is gone.  This card is based on Verve's first sketch for January.  I used the digi stamp Great Catch from Whimsie Doodles to make the card.
One Crazy Stamper is also hosting a colour challenge Red/White + One other colour and would you look at that my dragon is red and pink on a white background. 
You can find all the sketch challenge details HERE.
Materials
Martha Stewarts Valentine's Day Collection Mat pad
Ranger distress ink-Victorian Velvet
Copics- 1 fish-R46,24,14 and 2 fish-R22,20
Sand-E34,31
Water-BG10

Catch the details here on how to make that cute "fish hook" from a paper clip.

You make me happy

Shy Cupid from Whimsie Doodles is just too cute, I couldn't resist making a card with her.  I recently purchased the "Love" mini deck from Fancy Pants and I have to admit I am having a difficult time using the paper.  I'm stuck.  This card helped me get my Mojo back.

Mustache Valentine digi

This digi from Whimsie Doodles just cracks me up!!  I think I'll save this card for hubby.
I put a little W3 and 1 under the mustache to give it some pop!  Half a doily and wrinkle ribbon.
Did you get it??  I really "must ask" you to be mine.

I love you this much.

New digi's from Whimsie Doodles are out and I have been very busy making cards.  Lots of cards! The one I have to show you today is from the newest set of Valentine sentiments, they're perfect for school age children but since my son will soon be 16 I'm sure it's safe to say he won't giving handing out Valentines to his class mates, so I'm making card instead.
This image is a little bonus included in the set, so you won't see it in the preview.
Copic colours used:R46,24,14, BG10,W07,05,03.
I blended a little white prisma pencil inside the eyeglasses.
