Whale You Be My Valentine?

Hello!  Thank goodness I made this card over the weekend when it was 70 degrees outside, instead of today when it is 20 degrees!  You probably know this, but if you don't, that statement matters because my stamp "shack" is literally a little metal building outside and even though I do have a window unit with a heater in it, when it is cold like this, it is just toooo cold to enjoy making cards!  So, that means at this point, I am unsure if there will be another card to get completed for tomorrow's post.  We will see.  Let me ger to today's card!  When I see cards on my favorite blogs, I save the pics to a file on my computer.  Most of the time, I am getting ideas on how they did their layout.  But, sometimes, I see stamps used that I have and end up making a card almost like the original one. Click here to see the card I cased, with stamps and layout.  It was made by Susan Liles, which is an ex-customer of mine, and a very talented lady, so I really wanted to give credit where credit is due!  My card is not exactly the same, but it is close!  Here is mine  ... enjoy!

My sentiment is different from hers, as hers is actually from The Cat's Pajamas set, mine is printed on the computer.  But, maybe I will change out my sentiment to the stamped one so that I can use it year around, not just for Valentine's Day.  And the other big change I did was to add the heart behind the whale.  But, as you can see, it is pretty darn close! I like her card and mine!
