Speedy

**Please scroll down for the Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop post!**

Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing wedding for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. During his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer and before his execution, he wrote, "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her. ~exert from here.

The Craft's Meow Design Team have a slew of amazing Valentine inspiration lined up today, you should have arrived from Jessica Fick's blog if you are following the hop. (If you want to start at the beginning, swing on by The Craft's Meow Blog for details!)

This was such an easy card to make! I stamped one of the speedometer images from Zoom Goes My Heart with grey ink multiple times onto textured card stock, came back to add the odometer image and words (these are my favorite parts of the set! I LOVE U, MY LOVE, UR FINE) and then finished the custom background by stamping the meters in red chalk ink. I finished the card with a banner stamped in one of the larger images from the set.
