A Moxie Fab Valentine
Valentines Day is extra special for us because we officially tied the knot on this romantic day over a decade ago. A romantic day, celebrating one of the most romantic occasions ever with friends and family. Perfect! It seemed everyone had romance on their minds as we danced, laughed and celebrated the evening away. Feb 14 would be special for us regardless but now it seems almost the whole world gets together and expresses their love for each other on this day - our Anniversary! - kinda nice don't ya think :)
I always get two cards from Hubs on Valentines Day - one for the romance of the day and one for our anniversary. Most of the time they are store bought and almost all of the time there is one that is funny and one that is super romantic. He gets one card from me - and it's always handmade usually at the last minute. However this year is different - he still gets one card but I made it a week early!!!! - all because of Cath's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger this week. Love this TT for several reasons: It's Valentines Day themed, it's Martha Stewart and it has all the elements on it that I love to put a card together (pink, scallops and satin)!
My new thing is felt. Now I know it is not new for many of you but I am hooked on it and as you may have noticed when I get hooked on something I use it a lot! Ha :) Soooo expect to see quite a bit of it in the near future. I love that Spellbinders die templates cut felt so easily and this little heart was a breeze to create with a piece of cream felt and Spellbinders Classic Heart. Other die templates on this card are Labels Fourteen and Classic Scalloped Borders Petites. The paper is My Mind's Eye and the twine is American Crafts.
Okay folks I am settling down to watch the game. I am rooting for Green Bay but secretly I watch for those clever commercials. Have a great Sunday. May the best team win!
