Love is in the air...

...so don't choke on it. :)

Happy day of LOVE, everyone! Hope this finds you doing something you love with someone you love.

I made a card for Husband. I don't know why but fairly recently I started calling him "my person". I will just look at him and say, "You're my person." So how cool was it that I found this stamp set, Cupid's Arrows by Cas-aul Friday Stamps? It had to be mine. Be mine...get it? Ha! *(I sent THIS ONE to his office via USPS. I'm sneaky like that.)*



I used Stampin' Up's Night of Navy ink and paper to mat my front and stamp my sentiments. The rest was done with the dies. I used SU cardstock in Night of Navy, Brilliant Blue, not SU, Tempting Turquoise, and Bashful Blue.

The Cas-ual Friday dies cut like a dream. The stamps are that good too. This my first time creating with this set (and Cas-ual Friday sets in general) and I have to say that I will definitely be back.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CAS-ual Friday - The Blue Challenge
Penny's Challenge #164 - Monochrome
Creative Moments #36 - Anything Goes with Love
Digi Stamps 4 Joy #85 - Add a Heart or Make a Heart-shaped Card

CASology #82 - Bold
CAS(E) This Sketch! #64
The Stamping Boutique - Valentine/Love
Brown Sugar #81 - Use a Punch or Die
Creative Finger #23 - Anything Goes
Sister Act #45 - Anything Goes


You saw THESE CARDS I made cards for the girls (we gave them before school). I also made the girls a card to put in their lunch box. Love to surprise them with stuff like this. Again with the sneaky. :)



All of my pinks are Stampin' Up; Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink, ?, Melon Mambo, Real Red, and Rose Red. I think that's the order. It was hard keeping up with all the colors and names; little pieces were flying everywhere. :) I used the large chevron punch. The letters are Kelly Purkey and the gems are iCrystal. I matted the front on Pretty in Pink and then attached it to a Basic Gray card base.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday #119 - Anything Goes
Color Throwdown #279
Fab N Funky #203 - Love/Valentine
Creative Card Crew #55 - K.I.S.S.
City Crafter #198 - "Love"
Sweet Stamps #156 - Love
Cute Card Thursday #308 - Clever Cutting
Delightful Sketches - Love Notes

These were my kids' Valentine's. I punched a hole above and below their fists and stuck a sucker through. The note on the back says "I'm a sucker for you. Happy Valentine's Day". We did these a couple years ago and the girls loved it. I had to help L out a bit. :)



Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
