So I started working on the Valentine's cards for my Grandkiddies!!  As I always start with the girls this time I chose to go with the boys first!

I went with a heart shaped easel card...
using Go Kreate #260019 Half XXL Frames-Heart #1 for the main card...
and Go Kreate #120019-Concentrics Heart #1... 
 this sweet little chocolate lovin' bunny is called "Bon Bon Bunny" HHP06...
I used my copics
