I (heart) my boys!

My Valentine's Cards this year primarily consist of my grandson (Hayden) and my other favorite little guy, Noah,  who I baby-sat for from the time he was 3 months! I will eventually make one for the DH, but that will take more consideration.... hmmm....
But for now, here is my first KIDDY card for this holiday!
Noah turns two this March, and he already knows many of his letters by name! So he will recognize the X's and O's.  Also, one of his favorite "amamals" in his picture books at my house is the "Oppotoos". 
I used Bazzill cardstock for the red background and embosed it with the Cuttlebug "Hearts" folder. The blue sparkly circles strip is from DCWV (Animal Crackers), the 3D octopus image and "bubbles" are K & Co. (A to Z). The letter boxes are cut from Martha Stewart's "Baby Boy" collection; the red letters are Cricut "Base Camp"; and finishing it up is a vellum sentiment from Colorbok.
