"Hay" There

I have finished, addressed and sent Christmas cards. So I am moving on to Valentine cards. It sneaks up on us before we know it. I have 5 grandchildren plus their parents. They live a considerable distance. Since I don't see them often, I send them each a card and treat. The kids are all teens and pre-teens so they don't want anything cutesy.  And I like doing puns on cards.
Also it is time to start making some for Send A Smile 4 Kids. Since it is still winter here at Valentine's Day, I think my card will be okay for their Winter Fun 4 Kids challenge.
The background paper, a friend gave me. The bale of hay is from LaLa Land stamps, the hairy chick in back is from SU and the small one is from Newton's Nook.All colored with SU blender pens and fussy cut.
 Inside I did a computer sentiment that says "Be my Valentine".
I have used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, using my 3 sentiment words as their 3 accents at the bottom.
And one for the boys
The striped paper is from SU. The farmer is from Newton's Nook.
Since it is Anything Goes at Tuesday Throwdown, I will post there too.
