Almost a Valentine's

Hi all,
I hope you are having a good week. Daisy woke up yesterday with a very swollen eye and she was unable to open it. She is now on antibiotics and won't be able to go to school for the rest of the week. I just hope that as the weather improves (?), she won't pick up as many illnesses. She hasn't missed too much school, but she really doesn't like staying home when her friends are all in school. I now have to find things to do indoors for a few days, so my craft stash might take a bit of a battering!
Over at CRAFT, we are sponsored by Truly Madly Crafty, Stitchy Bear and Bugaboo Stamps. Our theme is Valentine's and I have used a lovely image by Floppy Latte called Almost Kissing. I used blues and few embellishments for this card, as it was originally meant to be my valentine's card for hubby. But, I ended up sending it to my Mum and Dad who celebrated their 45th Wedding Anniversary last week and I hadn't made a card and was already late. I found this card and as 45 is Sapphire, I thought it would work quite well. Hopefully I will be back over the weekend.
I would like to enter this into:
My Mum's craft shop - It must be love
Fab n Funky - Love is in the air
The paper Shelter - Be my Valentine
Simon says Stamp - Love is in the air
