Valentine's Day Recap

Thought I would share the Valentine I made for my dh.  I love this Hero Arts clear set CL439 Kiss From the Sun!  I "personalized" the shirt and dress with some Heidi Grace rub-on letters as believe it or not I don't own any alphabet stamps! (I think I need to do something about that!)  HA S5215 Clouds were stamped with Ranger tumbled glass distress ink.  The little birdie is from an old HA clear set called CL064 Tiny Bird Messages.

The best part of the card is the sentiment :) When my dh and I were dating it was loooong before cell phones and texting were the norm (yeah, I know I'm dating myself!) so we weren't so "connected" 24/7.  I can't tell you how many times we used to leave messages on each others home phones that included the "You are My Sunshine" song!  Just one of the many reasons I fell in love with the guy :) 

Other Materials Used:
Bo Bunny pp
JoAnn's heart buttons
Stampin' Up cs and border punch
Papertrey ink cloud dies
CB swiss dots embossing folder
MSE sentiment

TFL and for all your sweet comments!  Tomorrow I plan to spend some time learning more about all this blogging stuff :)

This song is one I sang to one of my grandsons when I would rock him to sleep. What a sweet way for you and your future husband to "connect" with each other.

Love the card, Robin. And, thanks for visiting my new blog!! I appreciate your nice comment.
