Meljen's Designs - Punny Valentine

This morning when I was watching the weather report on the news I realized I forgot to type up my Meljen's Designs post for today. So I am trying to hurry up and get this typed before I start getting ready for work.

I used the new release to paper piece a Valentine's day card for my daughter.

I love this release! I know, I say that every week, but I really do love these cute, punny images. Here is a look at the entire set which is available on Whimsy Stamps today.
