Nontraditional Valentines w/ free digital images

I hope every one's weekend is going as expected and that you are having a great time, I look forward to spending extra time when my family is home  rather it be cooking an exceptional meal to just casually sitting around chatting.
Last night I put together a valentines card that steps out of the ordinary colors for this occasion and I was very pleased with the results.
As you know I have been playing around in Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator CS4, I  am enjoying it so much and eventually want to bring you digital images that you will want to use on your cards.

Last night I decided to change it up a little and do a quick easy layout. I had a photo of myself and seeing I had only ever done one (of myself) I thought it would be fair for years down the road when one of my Grandchildren takes a trip down memory lane, they will see the creator of all the albums!!!
