Blogger's Challenge 86: Valentine's


Our challenge this week was Valentine. While Valentine's in my house takes on a whole new meaning, we don't do a lot of celebrating of Valentine's Day...it's hubby's birthday instead. Do you know how hard it is to find a birthday/Valentine's Day card in one??? So I decided to make my own this year, saves me on a little money. I used the CTD29 colors this week using Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip & Regal Rose. I also broke out a stamp set I have had for about 8-9 months and never inked up. Thought it would be a perfect Valentine's stamp.

I had this big night out planned for him with some friends, going to a hockey game. Unfortunately for us, our oldest son is in a baseball tournament this weekend and of course they scheduled us for a late evening game so we had to scratch our plans. We still are going to try to do a late dinner and maybe a movie. Have to play it by ear.

Very cute card, love the colours. My friends birthday is on Valentines Day as well, and I find I have to make a card for her because nothing in the shops caters. Have a great weekend!
