Valentine.......


As we are half way through January and closing in on February, I have begun to think about Valentines Day.  I need to make several cards and this is probably only my second one.  I love the Grand Madison Window die from Poppystamps.  I purchased this one from Joan's Gardens.  Joan carries lots of wonderful dies in her shop and she would welcome your dropping by.  I love to go browse through and almost always come up with something I just can't live without. 

I cut the window out of white card stock and just adhered it to the center of my card.  Some pretty paper a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts a Spellbinders heart die and of course a sentiment from Heartfelt Creations.  Oh I almost forgot about my new butterfly die!  I love, love, love it!  It is the Vivienne Butterfly from Memory Box.  I cut it out of white card stock and added a little glitter to it...actually a lot of glitter...As far as I'm concerned all butterflies must be glittered!

So what do you think?  Do you think this might do for a manly Valentine?  Something about the dark paper just makes me think male. 

OK that's all I have this morning.  I'm going for a good hot cup of coffee and then I'm going to visit some of my blogging friends.  Have a great day and remember to "Breathe".

Lovely, "manly" Valentine card, Glenda, but I think the flowers are too beautiful to waste on a man. He would have to be a very special man to appreciate this card. I do love the colors. Have a beautiful Thursday.

Oh so beautiful! Might be wasted a man unless he appreciates flowers. Loving the butterfly and the Madison window the more I see it used!
