Will you be my Valentine?

I hope you all got a Valentine from someone special. For some reason I thought Valentine's Day was tomorrow so last night I'm sitting with Nicole and hubby watching DOI when Nic mentions something about VD being Monday. Well that caught my attention didn't it lol! It was on my to-do list but nearer the bottom as I thought I had another day so once DOI was finished and Nic had gone home I nonchalantly made a beeline for my workroom and started the hubster's card. Phew...made it in the nick of time lol. This is what I came up with...



Thank goodness for Magnum Add-Ons...they've come in VERY handy lately! I loved the layout I did for Steven's card so much I more or less copied it with subtle changes. I inked up the heart in a box , coloured it with my Copics and cut and embossed it with my Nesties. I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug embossing folder and die cut some more gorgeous felt for the border and heart. The sentiment is from SU!



The colour of the felt and button IRL is more fuschia than strawberry...lovely and lush :-D


I usually just give hubby a card but these are what arrived for me from him earlier today. He loves sending me flowers. In fact he arrived on our first date with a huge bouquet....so big I couldn't see him lol. Ahhhh....so romantic but I guess it did the trick because we got married 6 months later!!

Thanks to everyone who entered our challenge last week. As usual you came up with some amazing work. Make sure you check in to the Challenge Blog tomorrow to see if you're a winner and to see what my amazing DT have to inspire you this week. This weeks challenge is lots of fun so I do hope you'll take the time to enter.

That's it from me for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x
