Swinging Bunny Valentine

How lucky I am that God has blessed me with eight amazing grandchildren! Five of them are boys, so pink hearts and valentines are out for them!  My quietest grandson is seven years old and very artistic. When he was in kindergarten, he had a strong drive to draw pictures much of the day. As soon as he'd get home from one of our excursions, he went straight to the paper and markers and began to draw things he saw. I gave him a marker, crayon, and paint set that he loved. His first comment was that it had so many "greens." Green has been his favorite color, so I made this masculine valentine card for him using an older Nutcrafter's digi image, colored with Copic markers, and a new paper pack from Close To My Heart, "Lollydoodle."

 I used some older sentiment stamps from CTMH. The inside has two stamps combined to make the message I wanted for him.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you as you create and spread a little love with your own cards!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Cards Galore Encore #2 - add gem, glitter or candi
Catered Crop - heart of the matter
