Shhhh....


I've haven't posted for a while but it doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything. ;) I've got a ton of Valentine cards to share but some I will not post until they've been received by my PTI sisters for our Valentine swap. I received the most beautiful card from TammyRN yesterday. I will take a picture and post it this week.

Tonight I wanted to share a card I made for my hubby for Valentine's day. Don't worry, I don't think he reads my blog. :) I used one of my favorite sets from Papertrey Ink, On My Couch and On My Couch Additions. I had this idea swirling around in my head for a few days. I wanted to come up with a color scheme and layout that wasn't too girly. I tend to put bows, buttons and glitter on everything that is standing still so this was a CHALLENGE. LOL! But I like how it turned out. Hope you enjoy it too, so here goes.....


I had to have just a little bit of sparkle, so I used a couple of rhinestone brads and some rhinestones in the centers of my pillows. By the way, I don't know if you can tell but the pillows are covered with red flock. They're cute and fuzzy! I thought this sentiment was a great one for Valentine's Day. Now the inside.....



I usually do add something decorative to the inside of my cards so I thought I would share since that seems to be a theme this month. I used some more of the decorative paper and a strip of scor-tape covered with red flock. I had to adapt the sentiment a little bit. It actually reads" I chair-ish your friendship". I just made sure to only ink part of the sentiment. I scoured my sets for a "you" stamp that was just right but didn't find one so I pieced it together with simple alphabet. The font doesn't match exactly of course but I still liked it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting! Stop back soon, I have more Valentine cards to share.

Isn't it hard to make a "man" card and leave off all the good stuff? lol This turned out really nice and I love that stamp set - it's so cute and perfect for V-Day.

Oh, I almost forgot to say that we picked the same background template from thecutestblogontheblock. I thought I had accidentally gone to my own blog. You have superb style. ;)

That's a really sweet Valentine's card! I love how you added the hearts and adapted the sentiment inside too. I just love the "i chair-ish you" sentiment. So sweet and very clever!

Really striking card - perfect contrast between the more masculine couches and black patterned paper and the lovely red hearts!
