I hope Valentine's Day is everything you wish it to be. Jim and I have never really celebrated Valentine’s Day. I told him when we were first dating that I thought it was a silly commercial holiday. Thirty three years later I think he is still relieved. I strongly believe if you love someone you shouldn’t wait for a holiday to tell them so. Not a day passes that we don’t say I love you and we show each other we do as well. Now that Jim can’t shop he leaves me little notes around the house saying 1-4-3 meaning I love you. I know when I make my morning coffee on Valentine’s morning I’ll find his note in the microwave. This card will be waiting for him when he takes his 3 AM medications and does his nebulizer treatment.
I found the video tutorial and template on Splitcoaststampers. It was an amazingly easy card to make. It took me longer to make the tiny envelop for my tiny message then it did the rest of the card. I wanted a masculine card so I used papers from DCWV Rock Star Matstak. This isn’t paper I would normally buy as I find it difficult to work with dark colors but when I found the complete 12 X 12 matstak in a thrift shop for $3 I couldn‘t pass it up.
Have an Amazing Valentine's Day!
