He Made Me a Valentine!!


My dear sweet adorable husband of 41 years made me a Valentine!!  I just squealed with delight (and a bit of envy if the truth be told) when I opened it this morning.   Yesterday, he asked me to point him to my Valentine bin and to cut him a couple of sheets of paper, then he chased me out of my studio.  I mean, I was told not to step foot into that room....period!

I had this sketch from Posh Designs Scrapbook Store Challenge #8 on my work desk.  When I saw this card, I knew immediately that he'd used this sketch...darn!  He beat me to it!!  He chose to use some rub-ons for his "Be Mine" and  the little heart flowers beneath it.  They're shiny and glittery but I couldn't capture the sparkle in the photo.   The focal point image came from a sheet of stick ons I had picked up on clearance at JoAnn's a couple of years ago and hadn't used.   (Please tell me you do that too!  I'm trying to be better about using what I have.) 

I told him his card would qualify fot two challenges because Our Daily Bread Designs current challenge is to use red or pink and bling.  He didn't know I have a couple of ODBD stamp sets...probably a good thing 'cause I'm going to use them for this challenge!! 

See those cool flowers around the card?  Those come from the awesome Cutting Cafe's Heart Flower Set.  Wait until you see what I did with them tomorrow.

I think the competition around here is getting tough so I need to step up my game!!  I would love it if you ladies would shower him with some comment love.   Those of you who know him, know what a sweetheart he is.  I'm one lucky lady.

OMGoodness, Charlene, do you have the sweetest husband or what? Please, tell him that he did an outstanding job. This is the second card I am blown away with that he created. The one he made you for your Anniversary was fabulous and this one...WOW...it could not be any more perfect!!! Way to go!! And for you, Charlene...aren't you the most blessed women to have a husband that whips up a card for you like that? I love my hubby, but he went to the store and bought one ;D. Gotta get him into my stamp cave and put him up for a challenge,hehe!! Have a wonderful and blessed Valentine's Day my friend, Sabrina
