Love U

I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card without overflowing it with hearts and red/pink. As good as my intentions are, I usually don't get them mailed and so therefore it could be used as an anniversary/spouse birthday/new love/etc card. The majority of the time I like to make my cards more general themed because I can use them for more than one occasion. I just build up my stash and run to it when needed. Sounds good in theory, right?! :) 
I chose to use Magnolia's Sister and Brother image. I've used it for Christmas before, as well. I followed the sketch from deconstructing jen. I'll have to admit I felt a little out of my league joining in this challenge, but I guess that is what "challenge" means. They are having a DT call, so I took a gander at that, too. 
The paper and twine are from My Mind' Eye (another treasure found at TJ Maxx-paper packs for $2.99). I believe the punch is Fiskars, but I could be wrong. The sentiment was hand written.


Pin It!
