Happy Saturday and a very happy Valentine’s Day to you all! I had a lovely day yesterday. It started off with my meeting in the morning off-site and then Andrew came and took me out to lunch. We went to Villa Monte which is a really good pizza place not too far from my office. It was good to catch up with Andrew! After work I came home and little Daniel was at my parents so I got to see him for a bit. Heather stopped by with a little treat for me to try. She made Creme Brûlée for the first time and it was delicious! Anything that she puts in an oven always comes out amazing! After that I went home and straightened up a bit and talked with Taylor, who stopped by, then Sandy came by to pick me up so we could go and have our Un-Valentine’s dinner. We went to Friday’s and they had 1/2 price bottles of wine… yes please, some Cupcake Pinot Noir! We had some of the warm pretzels with the craft beer cheese and the salads for dinner. We came back to my house and I showed her some of the new things that I have gotten and some of the cards that I have made but not posted yet. After she left I made my card for today but then wine took over and I got really tired so I went to bed a little early. I would say that’s one of the better Friday’s on record! A very nice day indeed!
The card that I made last night is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
Today’s the last day for a Valentine so I did one more for you! The card base is just a piece of Real Red Card Stock. For my background I stamped the Hardwood Background in Soft Suede on a piece of Crumb Cake and adhered it to the base. The greeting is from the Build a Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Vellum. I punched out the hearts from a piece of Real Red using the Confetti Hearts Border Punch and randomly adhered them to the vellum with some 2-Way Glue. A few dots of the same glue behind the hearts adheres the Vellum to the card. I never noticed the greeting before but I love it, perfect for Valentine’s Day! Sandy also gave me a little treat bag filled with Hershey’s Kisses so I thought it would be fun to include it in the picture for today! I hope that you like my simple Valentine for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thank you for stopping by and giving me some love, here’s some love right back to you! Have a lovely Saturday! 🙂
