Happy Valentine's Day!


Here's the cue card word for this week's CASology week #31 challenge...


and here's my card - a Valentine I made for the hubster. He's definitely a no-frills, no mushy kind of guy, so I went with something "cute" using the Lawn Fawn "My Silly Valentine" stamp set. When he opened it this morning, he jokingly  said "so now I'm an apple eh?" LOL I colored the apples with glossy accents and hand cut them to place on the strips of dsp & red cardstock. I colored in 2 of the tiny hearts with a red Spica glitter pen just for fun. I made him a treat bag of Dove peanut butter candy to go along with the card. He's always been a Reese's fan, but I think he might like to step up to some above-average peanut-butter candy for a change :)

I'm also entering this into the February ODBD challenge over at the Stars and Stamps blog. Their challenge this month is "fruit."

It snowed overnight here in PA and it looks beautiful outside this morning! The snow was a very wet snow and is clinging to all the trees and shrubs and it looks beautiful! The sun is shining brightly, so before the day's over, it will all melt away.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Valentine's day. I hope it's filled with love of the very best kind :) Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day, Carol.
I bet this really melted hubby's heart if even you don't know it. LOL It's great and a wonderful way to let him know how much you love him.

Guess what? It didn't snow here last night (HA) but it is going to be a day of sunshine. Yippee!!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and hubby. I am having computer trouble so it just took since 5 a.m. to get this far. Love the cute apples. Would this work for the fruit challenge for ODBD?

Perfect red card for this week! My husband isn't too mushy either and I think he would appreciate the humour in your card for sure! Glad you joined in on the fun at CASology this week!

The snow beautiful this morning! I thought about taking some pictures but never did.
Love your apple card you made for your hubby! Those apples & sentiment are perfect for a not so mushy card. I bet he loved the candy treat! Nice job!
Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Such a cute and non-mushy card, Carol ... the colouring on the apples is fantastic and I love the glossy accents giving them 'glow'! Anita :)

Carol,

The shinyness of the apples makes them look like they are candied. It is a nice clean design. Thank you for joining the OWH challenge.
