Forced Affection Day is on the Way

It's February.  Everything is pink and red and full of hearts.  The Hallmark Company in the states will make millions of dollars selling sappy Valentine's Day Cards.  I won't be a part of the nonsense.
In my opinion, love and affection should be shown every day, not just on February 14th which is Valentine's Day (Forced Affection Day).  It's the day people feel obligated to declare their love and devotion for if they don't they will surely be shunned.

In honour of VD, the holiday (not the disease), the RSD EDT is challenging Rick's fans and friends to make a creation using Cupid's Toys.  For the challenge, you must include a heart or an arrow or both in your design/image.  My make is below.  Click on the image to enlarge.

I used the image "I Want Your Heart 2015" drawn by Rick St. Dennis MFA.  
The image and background was coloured with Copic markers then the image was scanned to my PC.  I re-sized the image and added a calendar to it as well as a coordinating border.
Rick has a whole set of calendar toppers in his Etsy shop as well as many of his creepy images.
If you prefer cute, elegant, pretty, or mainstream images, check out Rick's Zibbet shop.

Here is a bit more about Rick's February Challenge:

It's time for our February RSD Facebook Challenge!
Theme ~ Hearts and/or Arrows
For this challenge, which must feature a Rick St. Dennis image, we want to see a heart(s) or an arrow(s) or both somewhere on your project, either in the image or in the background...or maybe it's the shape. Have fun with it!

Time Frame ~ February 1 – February 29 at 11:59 pm EST
