House Mouse Valentine for Wayne

Happy Valentine's Day Friends! Here at last is the card I made for my husband, Wayne. I am really trying not to buy any more stamp sets for awhile as we are nearly debt free.....and that excites us!! I love this stamp for Anniversaries and Love cards! In fact, if I am going to used a stamp that is whimsical, this is the type I will use.

Wayne loved it, in fact, he chuckled when he saw the inside. I screwed up, I had a stamp that said 'to my' and did not use it. So, I scratched out 'a' and wrote 'my'. Oh well, he knows me and it's okay!

The coloring was with inkpads and blender pen. The brads were just plain metal and needed jazzing what if it's for a guy, a little bling never hurt anyone! Poured Crystal Effects over the top and dumped the glitter on. The result was just enough sparkle.

Thanks for taking a look at my card today. Happy Crafting!!

  1. Cindy, you have made some fabulous cards. I really like this one. I love the image and the heart brads are adorable. Love all the little hearts on the inside. It does seem like life gets so busy anymore. TFS ;)

  2. Very nice, I'm sure your husband loved it...

  3. Hi Cindy, your card is lovely. I am good, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the message. I have just not had a lot of time, and feel I have lost my mojo... Hopefully I will get it back sometime soon :). Business has just kept me busier than I thought it would and the shop is so small that to take anything there would be difficult. I love coming by every now and then checking out everyone elses work though! Have a great week and thanks again!

  4. Hiya Cindy, This card is sooooo cute!!I bet your hubby loved it. xx jo xx
