Forever isn't long enough

Here's the cutest Skeleton image from Maria Medel Illustrations.  I just love this artist's images.  She has some awesome images including some cute Halloween images which you know is just my favorite holiday.  I thought this cute image could also be used for Valentines.  I added a sweet Valentine sentiment "Forever isn't long enough"

Question of the day #2: what's your favorite animal theme stamp?

Mine are owls, bears, and lately I seem to gravitate toward foxes

Did you see the early morning posting?

LOL, I'm not usually a fan of skeletons but this one is so darn adorable!! Even my 4 year old would love this guy. My favorite animals are dogs, cats, forest animals and quirky ones like unicorns or narwhals, and cute little ones like hamsters and guinea pigs.

Oh very cute skeleton and I agree he is perfect for Valentine's day. Animal themes would be butterflies... If they are considered an animal. Lol i also like bears, tigers, lions in real form not really the cutsie ones or owls, foxes. Giraffes are cute too.

This little skeleton-with-heart is so cute! I have a whimsical looking one similar to this that I use for halloween cards. My favorite animals are too many to list but I do love dogs and cats, cute animals by Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things or Mama Elephant. I also like fun animals like otters or geckos.

The sentiment you added is perfect to tie it all together! Favorite animals would be monkeys, apes, dolphins, turtles, fantasy animals such as unicorns griffins etc. and oddity animals. Hmmmm, would birds be in the animal category? Pelicans, flamingos, sea birds and peacocks if so. Fish too

Great card, Holley. I love owls and tigers, although there aren't that many of the latter. And dolphins xoxo

Oh my goodness, I never would have thought of using a skeleton for St. V. Day....lol. Pretty special. I totally like any kind of animal with "attitude". Not much into cutsie images, though. Hugs, Barbara

This is the cutest little skeleton I've seen in a long time, and so perfect with this sentiment. I like adorable images like this that don't take too much coloring! As far as animal stamps, I like just about all critters...from barnyard, to house pets, to jungle and forest animals, and all the way to fish and turtles!

I tend to gravitate toward wolves now that my daughter fostered and now adopted a momma and her baby. I also love dogs and eagles especially in patriotic poses.
I'm really loving this skeleton and how you used it on this card. I'm in awe of how you find so many different ways to use holiday stamps throughout the year. It's been fun watching all that you've posted over the years. It doesn't seem like it's been that long ago that you had your surgery.

I can't believe I didn't see this, Holley! I love me some skellies and he's a cutie. Love the sentiment, too. My fave are KITTIES, but you know that, didn't you? xxD
