Valentine's Girl

Hello all!
It's bitterly cold here today so I'm very glad I didn't have to go outside but I must say, it seems very strange to have this cold without the snow.  The first two winters I lived here in New Jersey, the winters were pretty impressive with the cold and the many feet of snowfall but the last two years have been mild with hardly any snow.  I'm not complaining as I'm not a cold-lovin' gal but it sure doesn't feel like winter!

        Anyway, February will soon be here which means Valentine's cards for all us card-makers - for this card I have used the fabulously glamourous Freya , the Valentine's Day girl from The Octopode Factory .  Don't you just love her heart-shaped glasses?
                                Obviously I had to colour her dress in red, using my Copics and I kept it all very CAS yet again!


I would like to enter this into the challenges at - 


    If you head over to The Octopode Factory , you can see all of the wonderful new digis from Lily, including some gorgeous Flapper Girls and some very cute LoveCats .  I can't wait to do something with these :)

P.S. I loved my trip and missed our cold snap--it got down in the 20's while we were gone--which is really cold for the desert! Glad I was on a beach at that time. :^)
