Happy Belated Valentines Day!

Since my SALT post was yesterday, I delayed posting a few Valentine Day cards until today! It's good to have two days of love though, isn't it?? :-)

Just a few stamps used for this card, both from justjohanna. The chipboard heart has been covered with a red cardstock and stamped with a floral stamp that is created for use in corners but since the heart was small I was able to just use a portion of the stamp to cover the heart with the floral print. And then the so fabulous sentiment, "you have a certain je ne sais quoi." I love it! It's perfect for a Valentines Day card!! Patterned paper is an retired sheet from SU!, which I adore, wish I could get more, and other paper and ribbon is by SU! as well.

I created a card very similar to the one above for the hubby...Who on Wednesday said, when I reminded him about Valentines Day, "can't we just stare loveingly into each other's eyes and forgot about the cards and gifts?" hee hee (Translation: "I forgot to buy a card.") You have to know my husband and his sense of humor but he delivered the line perfectly and it gave me a case of the giggles for the rest of the day. I, of course, had to make him feel a bit guilty by announcing that I had made him a special card.

After we had had dinner, cleaned up, etc. I was sitting at my PC checking email and my dear, sweet husband dropped this over my shoulder:

How cute is that?? The inside reads "...with love for you." He quickly used anything that was sitting on my craft table to make the card while I was in the shower. The coffee pot stamp is one I let the kids use, some - how creative is this - pearl head straight pins for the middle of the flower, and the flower was cut out of piece of scrap patterned paper that was sitting on my desk. The stem is hand drawn. This just made my night...too sweet! He's a hopeless romantic that husband of mine...LOL!

Happy "late" Valentine's Day!!
