Happy Valentine's day

Wow this year is just flying by isn't it, can't believe next Wednesday is already Ash Wednesday.  Time just seems to fly by, reminds me how precious it really is.

My hubby and I have exchanged our Valentine cards this morning so I am now able to post, he looks at my blog so I can't post ahead of time .  It is really funny that we both ended up using the same die cut this year and the inside words were quite close.

Here is the one I gave to him, he picked up this die cut set when we were on vacation, the scrapbook store we went to had them on clearance, so I decided to use it since it was one he picked out.  I have been really liking the look of the white on kraft but didn't want to go all white.  The key and lock at the bottom are those modge podge molds, done with the gold glue.

DCWV -- Metallic paper
Martha Stewart -- Frame border punch, Flourish scroll
Spellbinders -- Fallen Angel die
Modge Podge, molds and glue
David Tutera -- Celebrate sentiment

Here is the one my hubby made me:

Used the same Spellbinder set for the heart and sword, Martha Stewart punch all over the page star punch.  Not sure about the paper.  The inside is really neat too, he did some die cuts inside but I can't show that without showing what he wrote and that is personal :)

Here is the one I made for our daughter and Son in law:

Mary Engelbret -- Daily calendar for image
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A
BasicGrey -- Sugar rush paper
The ribbon, buttons and heart(on the bottom right) were all given to me from three different fellow cardmaking friends

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  We are having very lightly falling snow, looks real pretty.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Beautiful cards Connie. You are very lucky. My husband does not do valentines day so I always miss out.

Both your cards are so special! I think that is wonderful that your husband made your card!
Have a wonderful day!

Connie said...

It is so fun to see the cards that you both did for each other. The wings are so feminine and the sword so masculine and yet you both used the same die. I think that's cool :)
Happy Valentine's Day.
Connie :)

That is just such a sweet idea for you two to exchange hand made Valentines! It's so fun that you share bits of this craft. Love the one you sent out, too. The sentiment is most wonderful!

Fantastic cards Connie. Love those metallic die-cuts on the first one... especially the wings with the heart.
