To my Valentine

who is definitely one of a kind!  I stamped Wendy's tree (Mail Art) in Black archival ink then overstamped some of the berries with a small heart stamp in Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, and one (of a kind) in Milled Lavender distress inks.  Coordinating Stickles were randomly applied to a few of the hearts.  I don't know the manufacturer of the sentiment; the '1' has purple Stickles on it.  We don't do mushy stuff to celebrate our love and affection for each other...no candy (he's diabetic and I'm not fond of it), no flowers (cat toys) and no dinner out (I'm a good cook and it's much less expensive)...sigh...sounds like we're boring but we're very happy and that's all that matters!  You do what makes you happy!

  1. Beautiful card, Susan. Enjoy the day the way YOU want. Anyhow (cynical comment coming!) Valentine's Day is over-hyped and over-commercialised!! (especially if you're on your own...)

  3. This card is relly pretty. Love the way you celebrate your love. I am not quite such a good cook, but cooking at home to show him I care ...

    However ... gotta have the chocolate ...
