Teacher Valentine's Day Cards

Today is Meredith's Valentine's Day party for school, and she is so excited to share her cards with her class. We made this card x2 for her preschool teachers. She decorated the inside, complete with scenes where her one teacher is a fairy under a mushroom. I'm telling you, this kid has an active imagination!!

Can you believe that I have two days in a row with huge satin bows? It must be my thing this week! I figure if I keep practicing, the bow will come out right!

This card is also for the Color Throwdown #79 which uses Sage Shadow, Blush Blossom, and Riding Hood Red. Can I tell you...I never use the first two colors? In fact, when I first started buying Stampin' Up almost 5 years ago, I bought the sampler pack of the Soft Subtles paper, and these cards are from those 3 sheets of each color that come in it! Talk about untapped!

This card is also for Cute Card Thursday #99 which has a theme of love this week!!

Card Details:
Stamps: For a Friend by Stampin' Up
Paper: Be Loved by My Mind's Eye; Riding Hood Red, Blush Blossom, and Sage Shadow by Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Satin ribbon; SU marker (Sage Shadow); Spica glitter pen; Quickutz nesting heart dies

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
