Knowing I probably wouldn't see my son and daughter-in-law today, I stamped, glued, cut, inked and rearranged (several times, btw) this card until it met the approval of "momma." That would be me. Along with a couple of candied apples, I placed it in their hands while they visited with us yesterday afternoon.
I assembled this tag card for my daughter. I wasn't very happy with the pink background streaks until I began to look at them as "pink breeze."
Lastly, this card was made for my Valentine of 38 years. Man, that seems so ancient. But the love feels the same. You have my permission to say "awww" or run to the nearest bucket to puke. LOL!!
Here's the inside of Jim's card. I mounted a piece of vellum which had scatterings of copper, silver and gold bits throughout the paper. I wrote my sentiment using a Gelly Roll Glaze pen by Sakura. I love the way the ink flows from this pen without skipping or pouring out a lot of ink at once. It's perfect and leaves beautifully raised and glossy writing. If you click on the picture you may see the details.
There's so much happening today and over the next few days. Chinese New Year's AND Valentine's on the same day - I can't remember that ever but maybe I was too much into the love thing to know that. It's been 38 years, remember?! Then tomorrow is an off day in honor of President's Day. Oh man and on Tuesday it's big ole FAT TUESDAY! Whoopie Yum-Yum!! It all winds down on Ash Wednesday.
Well, whatever you do, however you celebrate, whoever you love, do it with a full heart. Life doesn't guarantee another anything and I'm not waiting to see how they party on the other side. LOL!!!
