For my Valentine

Last night was craft night and, after tea and home made caramel whoopie pies, we all made made cards using House Mouse decoupage sheets.
I decided to make a Valentine's card for my husband using this cute image and yes, he really does tell cheesy jokes, in fact he's well known for them!  The image is really big so a large card was the order of the day, I opted for an 8x8 parenthesis shaped blank.
The papers are all Papermania Me to You, a double sided stack perfect for Valentine's projects, to which I added some red pearls card.  The hearts were made with Spellbinders dies, I kept these as the only embellishments as my husband doesn't like my fussy style, preferring a much simpler style.
  I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
House Mouse and Friends - #137 - special cuts, I used die cuts
ABC - #14 - Valentine's card
Pink Elephant - #184 - hearts
Unstampabelles - #19 - use dies
Gingerloft - #56 - love is in the air
Scrapper's Delights - love
Brown Sugar - #26 - Valentine's
CRAFT - #191 - Valentine's / love
Bearly Mine - #71 - hearts galore
Shopping Our Stash - #87 - Valentine's, my older stash is the decoupage sheet

  22. Hi Wendy, I am from Unstampabelles. Just wanted to say sorry,when initially visited I just read the word 'image' in the second paragraph. For some reason I did not read the first couple of lines of your post, to read the word decoupage sheets. I have happily reinstated your entry into our dies challenge. Thanks for letting us know. :-)
