Naughty or Nice?

I'll start with the nice. ;)

I made these cards for the girls to give them before school on Friday (Valentine's Day, in case you didn't know).

For my blond...

For my brunette...

I used a Whimsie Doodles digi called 'Heart Strings' as well as their card sketch. I used a Kraft card base and Crate Paper Love Notes. I used a Nestabilities heart die as well as Stampin' Up's little heart punch. I added Christmas Red Stickles because they're my favorite. :) On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink (smallest hearts are Real Red cardstock) using Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Sentiments along with a few more punched hearts.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Now, for the naughty. *wink* Those of you who have followed me for a while, or know me in real life, know that this is not the kind of image I usually gravitate towards. But when I won 3 digital images from The Stamping Chef, I couldn't resist getting a little racy. And being from Texas, I just had to get the stereotypical 'cowgirl'; because we all wear our cowboy hats and boots everywhere. Ha!

For Husband...

Like I said before, the image is from The Stamping Chef and I colored her up using Prismacolors pencils. You can't really tell but I used the Christnas Red Stickles on the heart. The paper is from Crate Paper's Love Notes collection and the 'XO' stamp is from Simon Says Stamp 'Big Holiday Wishes' and embossed with white embossing powder. The inside is the same as above.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
