Happy Valentine's Day

Well this has been quite the crazy day for us. Both of us needed some medication so we went and picked up our prescriptions at the Doctors office, headed out to the base to get them filled at the Pharmacy and we arrived 2 minutes after they had closed.  We have had off and on freezing rain, sleet and snow and they were closing early so people could get home.  I was thankful my hubby came with me because it was like an ice skating rink out there, most roads ok, but the parking lots and sidewalks are terrible.

The story on this card is after I had it made my hubby mentioned he didn't really like that chalkboard look and I thought OH NO.... well after seeing my card he said he didn't like the look of it cut out with fancy dies because it didn't look right, but he liked it just cut straight this way. He saved himself anyway, LOL!

Spellbinders -- Lace hearts dies
DCWV -- Metallic Stack
Basic Grey -- Sugar Rush paper
Papertrey ink -- Live Love Life stamp set, embossed w/white embossing powder and chalk smeared over top of the embossing
Hand stitching
Prima-- Tiny Junkyard Findings

He told me the story behind his card for me.... he waited until I went to bed last night to make his card, and he checked his email and he got an email from Gamestop and it said something like "Is valentine cutting into your game time? , we got you covered"  and he said well yes, yes it is a little bit...  they had 4 different cards to choose from and he said this had two nice things to say and the others only had one...LOL!  He was able to put the image into photoshop and add my name to it.

Of course I am not going to share the sweet sentiment he had inside, it is a bit personal but he thought I would laugh at the story behind the image he chose and I did :)

I have a miniature rose bush to enjoy inside, hopefully I don't kill it like my last plant, but I can enjoy a bit of spring early on this cold and icy day :)

Hope you are all enjoying your day,
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Very interesting reading your story about both cards! Your hubby has a good eye. I think it would be the sweetest thing if Rich made me a Valentine. The one your guy made would be perfect because I got hooked on Walking Dead (I know -- ewwww!).
