After agreeing last year that we wouldn't do the whole 'Valentine' thing this year Mr B came home from work yesterday with a paper bag that looked suspiciously like one from a card shop, then admitted he had forgotten we weren't buying cards this year. The look of surprise on his face when I said I hadn't made, or even bought one for him sent me scurrying off to my craft stash.
I don't have many stamps suitable for valentines and time was of the essence (as they say) so it was down to a House Mouse stamp, a few Promarkers, an oval aperture card blank from way back when in my Pergamano days and a few hearts. I only had pink roses so thanks to my trusty mica sprays they, and my fingers, ended up a rich dark red. Only had to add a bit of red velvet ribbon (Paperchase) and away we went.
It only took half an hour or so and I was pleased with the end result. Totally different from my journal page but then I don't think Mr B would have appreciated an arty-farty card.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone, let's appreciated those we love.
