Hubby and I exchanged our valentine cards this morning, I had to laugh because he laughed at the outside and then opened it up and had this funny look on his face and he turned it around and showed me a blank inside, now this is the second time this has happened to me, I said well the front says it all :)

One of the girls in my stamp group sent me these stickers last year and I don't care for coffee but my hubby does so I thought he would like it.  I placed the coffee cups and donut stickers onto white  card stock, colored them with markers and hand cut them out, adding some glossy accents to the icing of the after adding a but of sprinkles to the icing.

Hubby made mine during a break at work, I guess the girls were making up little packets to give away and there were fake roses on top, they didn't need them all and hubby said can I have a few of those petals and leaves and they said sure, his glue was all dried up so he used a stapler to attach them to the card and then did some doodling to finish it off, isn't it cute how the petals look like a heart :)

Update on my eye, I just got home from the doctors today, he looked all over then took out my contact and the pain was still there, he looked again to check the scratches and they were still there, he put some numbing stuff in my eye to lesson the pain and did some more digging, still couldn't find anything, he had me sit out in the waiting room for 15 minutes so that the numbing stuff would wear off again, when he called me back in he thought maybe it was like a calcium dot under the lid so he did more scrapping of the under part of my I lid even with the antibiotic drops that was still red, he put some more drops in my eyes that highlights scratches and as he was scraping and had my looking at the ceiling all of a sudden he saw a little something and pulled it out with twizzers, I saw it too and he went to get a tissue to put it on so we could look at it and he dropped it, so we are not sure what it was but the sharp pain is gone, now all I have is the pain from the scratches and I can totally deal with that while they heal, I am so glad he didn't give up and he gave it another try .  Thank you all for your prayers and best wishes, I should be on my way to total healing now :)

Happy Valentines day!!

I love how the petals look just like a heart, Connie! Isn't he the sweetest hubby ever? And the doodling is great, too. Mostly, it's the idea that he saw something of beauty and thought of you. THAT'S the truly gorgeous part of it all! Your card is above is so cute with the coffee and donuts! xx
