For My Valentine

I have the most wonderful Valentine in the world! We don't go overboard for Valentine's Day. We try to keep romance alive every day and treat each other special all the time, rather than waiting for our anniversary or Valentine's Day.

This year we went out for dinner last Friday night and then went to a movie. Restaurants inflate their prices and have too many pe
ople on Valentine's Day so we celebrated a little early. Tonight the plan was to stay home and I had planned a nice dinner but I've had a terrible headache all day so instead we went and got a quick, casual dinner at Schlotzsky's Deli and then came home and exchanged gifts. I got a bottle of Fierce cologne from Abercrombie for my sweetie and he surprised me with a couple's massage on Saturday. I can't wait!!!

This is the card that I made for him. I used this sketch from the Stamping Bella Blog.

Jen's Sketch Challenge February 2012

Sketch challenge time! The fantastic Jen del Muro has created another fabulous sketch for us. This month's sponsor is Your Next Stamp. I don't own any stamps from Your Next Stamp, but I played along anyway. Remember, Jen has a huge prize package at the end of the year and if you participate in the sketch challenge all twelve months of the year, you will be eligible to have a chance to win. Details can be found at Jen's blog.

Unfortunately, I had to make a sympathy card....my dear, dear friend lost her mother rather suddenly and she's in California and I'm in Colorado so I really wanted to make a handmade card to send her, rather than just buying a store bought card.

I used my new February kit from Studio Calico to make this card. I am new to the kit (just signed up in January) and I love it already! Last month I made a layout with the kit and this month I've made this one card so far. The kit is very versatile and I'm forced to use some products I might not have purchased otherwise. It's been great to stretch myself creatively by having someone else put together a kit for me.

All products used in this card are from the kit unless otherwise specified.

Stamp - Hero Harts
Ink - Stampin' Up!
