For Someone So Very Special - FFFC #132 'It's All About Love'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

We're kicking of a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The lovely Ivonne is our hostess for this challenge and her theme is 'It's All About Love' which is perfect as Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  We have another new sponsor and it's Magnolia-licious...yay.  To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

My card is this Peek-A-Boo card.

If you haven't seen a Peek-A-Boo Card in action, this is how it works.
