Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and Some Fun News!

I'm really checking in to share a card with you but I have to share my exciting news!  I just got my first request for a card for Paper Crafts Magazine!!!  I am so excited!  I will have a card in the July/August 2012 issue!!!  Have I put in enough exclamation marks?  :)  I was beginning to think it would never happen.  I am over the moon!!!

Okay now I will calm myself and tell you why I'm really here.  I made a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  The picture below is the inspiration and it is fantastic!  There are so many ways you could go with this!  I may have to make another card!  I just recently got my first few sets of Paper Smooches stamps and I LOVE how well they stamp.  The quality of the stamps are fantastic! is the picture.

And here is my card.
 I was playing around with the cute bear from the Chubby Chum Pals set and thought he would be cute with a little smooch on his cheek.  I pulled the red from the picture and the embossed heart background represents the polka dot wall in the picture.  Since Valentine's Day is coming up I thought this would be a great card for my daughter's teacher.  Hope you enjoy!
