For My Love



I made this card for my wonderful husband. I think this image is just perfect for a masculine card. It is called Cute Circles and I bought it at Inspired by Stamping. Does it ever stamp like a breeze!  The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/You Are Cherished. The 'Just For You' sentiment is from IBS, same as the houndstooth image.

My card was so easy to make. I stamped the image, punched some remnants from a Fiskars heart border punch, added two sentiments and the scored lines. That's it!

I think this will be the last of the valentines I'll be making. I may upload a few more but they are finished. How about you...all finished yet?

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-Have a Heart
Stampin' Royalty-Challenge #162-Create a card, scrapbook page, 3-D item, or My Digital Studio project with a love or valentine theme.

I've only made 1/4 of a Valentine's Day card so far and it's for my DH. Don't know if I can make it come together or not. I love the little hearts and the houndstooth sentiment. DH will really like this. My DH may not be feeling the same when he gets only 1/4 of a card with paper clipped pieces.

I totally see why you bought that image - LOL! Houndstooth! Love it. Great Valentines for a man - especially one that loves Alabama! Great card - very graphically easy on the eye - I am no expert at that stuff but looks very professional and very personal at the same time. I have more Valentines to do - a bunch more - so much to do so little time! Hugz!

I'm seeing an Alabama Valentine card here. I know that elephant is on the inside, right? Awesome card! I love the look of the score lines and never remember to add them to my cards. I'm done making my Valentines...if I don't make one for my son. The boy still hates to check his mailbox.

Great valentine card for your hubby! I'm almost finished making my valentines...but I haven't made one for my husband yet...I guess I should do that...smile..

I'm having to hold my finger back from ordering this fantastic stamp! I may have to break it to keep from pushing that key! The black & white houndstooth, simple sentiments and sweet cascading hearts make a beautiful card for a hubby!
