"Old friends never go out of style"

Hi Everyone.. I am finally catching on about how this whole blogging thing works (I Hope!)  I finally figured out how to link to challenges and what "back linking" means.  I now know to look at the date of my posts and compare the dates of the challenges so that I can play by "the rules"  (still not sure why that is so important)
I tend to make my cards by something that inspires me.  It could be a new image I bought or received.  It could be some pretty papers or necessity like a birthday or holiday.  So I tend to make my cards first, then look for challenges to enter.  So I have learned not to post all my work too early.  However with the big FIVE OH approaching soon, I am afraid I will forget to post what I have been saving up in Picasa and other photo editing programs..
So here is one of my Valentine/Love/Heart cards that I made for a special friend.
It is a Bugaboo image.  I think her name is Stella...(another thing I have learned - the importance of cataloging everything as I save it in order to give credit where it is due)
I colored her using copics and pro markers.  I used a pre made 5 x 7 red base card that I ran through the swiss dots cuttlebug folder.  The matting papers are from a Michaels'  "special"  bag of...... essentially -  scraps  (never do that again, I make enough of my own!  and I am sorry to say,  that I did not keep the packaging that the stamp set came in, but it is a cute set with "girly" types of sentiments that I find appropriate for friends and relatives. for the challenges that I am entering:
