"From My Heart To Yours'

Friday, February 4, 2011

I usually only make two Valentine's Day cards a year. Now, since my mother has passed on I'm down to making only one. The remaining one is for my other love of my life Rose. Although we don't always agree on everything, she still supports me in everything that I do, even the crazy thing I get into.

The card I am posting today, may and may not be the one she will get this year, but she will get one.

The card that I have made today is from a stamp set from "The Angel Company". It contains 8 images and is called "Furry Friends" #T-3245. All of the images are of dogs and cats. Very cute and small.

The main card is an easel card that I cut using the Spellbinder die "Classic Scalloped Heart". All of the mats on this card were cut with the same set of dies.

Here is the card;

"From my heart"

The main colors for this card, brown and hot pink. I used a Cuddlebug embossing folder to emboss the mat. The embossing folder is call "Heart Blocks", which is very appropriate for this card.

I have to reveal one thing. When it comes to making bows, I get my wife to do them, she has it down to an art. The image was colored with my Copic Markers as usual.

Hope you enjoy my effort and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Hi Bob,
    I think your card is really cute. I love the bow that Rose made - she is awesome at bows! Wish she would teach me how to make them. The colors on the dog are pretty as well. Ramona A.

    I love it Bob. How wonderful that you make one Valentine card each year. That way she truly realizes how special she is. After fifty years of marriage she should know, huh? Great work! Lisa from Frugal

    That is absolutely adorable, very creative, of course, I expect nothing less from you. There is a tool for bows that really works well called a bow easy which is what most use. But having your wife making them is a great idea too LOL!
