Valentine for hubby!

Hmm...I wonder what he will say when he opens it. I will probably get a "that's nice, did you make that" and maybe even a "thank you" and then he will lay it down somewhere in the house for me to pick up later. LOL. Does any of that sound familiar? Yea, I thought so!

Okay, my card base is Chocolate Chip and the pattern papers are all Dream Street. For the letters I used my Quickutz Diesel font and stamped over them with SU French Script background stamp using Chocolate Chip ink. I used my Spellbinders Nestabililities to cut my two circles and Quickutz Nesting Hearts. I ran all the hearts through my Fiskars paper crimper to give them some texture. Added some ribbon and a button and called it DONE!
Deets: Cardstock, Ink and Slot Punch: Stampin' Up. Pattern Paper: Dream Street. Ribbon: Maya Road. Button: Craft Supply. I also used Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, Quickutz Nesting Hearts, Diesel font and Fiskars Paper Crimper.

Very cute! I lvoe the texture on the hearts. And, yes, that sounds very much like my hubby...but then later, I find out that he talks up my cards to buddies (and admin's) at work. So although he may not show it, he is proud of me!
