Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been watching the twins this afternoon and evening and made dinner for the kids. We watched the twins last night so their parents could go out for Valentine's Day. I'll have them again tomorrow night and we have them all day on Saturday. All that to say that I didn't have time to post until now. So I hope your Valentine's Day was special. My husband brought me flowers after work today. That's only the second time in 40 years that he's brought me flowers. LOL! My card today could be a Valentine but I'll probably send it as a love note later on.


I love this sentiment from A. A. Milne and decided that I'd use it for this card. My heart dies and patterns didn't really fit the shape of the sentiment so I hand cut the sentiment into a heart and then hand cut the backing paper. This was a free image and when I downloaded it I labeled it Life of the Party but I can't find any digital stamp company by that name. So I'm not sure where I got this. The black card stock background was embossed with a Sizzix Flourishes embossing folder. This entire card is almost all scraps. Even the ribbon is a scrap from my scrap box. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch as inspiration.
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you had a lovely day!

Donna

Donna, that's a wonderful sentiment. Congrats on the flowers. It is so wonderful that you help out so much with the twins - my Mom was 100 miles away and still is so she wasn't able to babysit as much as she does for my brother. Now my kids are grown and live near her which is rather funny.

Very pretty and sweet card! I love the layout, embossing and sentiment.
My hubby made dinner last night and had the table set all Valentine-y. They can surprise us once in a while!

This is very sweet and I love how you have to read around it. Flowers from your husband was very sweet especially since it is rare....just like my husband. It's great that you are helping with the kids, but are you getting time with your hubby and having date night...haha
