Impression Obsession Winter Blog Hop- Day 2

Today is day 2 of the Impression Obsession winter blog hop, and I decided to make a slightly different Valentine's Day card.  Does anyone else have the song from "Guys and Dolls" going through their head?

I love you, a bushel and a peck! 
A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck! 
A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap 
A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep. 

I love musicals!

To make the card,  I used the Strawberry Carton (D8979), Three Strawberries (B8893), Bushel and a Peck (B3978), and Cover a Card Ticking (CC126) stamps as well as watercolor pencils and a blender pen.
 
Here is a little information about the winter blog hop:
