Hi all!!! I have been madly stamping to get my projects done before I leave on Saturday for my mom's house - I want to get my kids and Tony's Valentines stuff all done before I go, whew!!!! So, I decided to use Karen's fabulous Sweet Sunday sketch this week to make Tony's card because I love square cards and it gives me more room on the inside to tell him how much I {heart} him!!!! I did not use any pink on this one, Tony is not a pink sort of guy, LOL!!! So, I decided to use my Very Vintage Jumbo wheel and make the background instead of using DSP. And, I love this wheel so it was no hardship *wink* I am lovin' the new punch from SU! called Two-Step Birds - I cannot get enough of using it and I soooo hope it will be in the new catty!! Aren't they cute??!! I decided that brads were too big for the eyes so I racked my little brain and came up with the idea to use the small microbeads and they worked out perfectly....I love when a plan comes together, *giggle*. I also used the small heart from the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set (available in the Occasions Mini) and stamped on the Ruby Red Card stock in the same color ink. Fun!! I love how the card turned out, and I know my man will appreciate it because I made it - he loves all my creations, even the crappy ones, LOL!!! And yes, I did the inside but you can't see cuz it's private, *wink*. Today I am going to run to the grocery store and then finish up some more of the projects I have started so I will have some fun new things to share tomorrow too!!! Thanks for stopping by, I love ya for it!!

Love, Love, Love this card! Isn't that wheel great (I undid mine and mounted it on cling foam and it's even easier to use). Have to play with those birdies too - you've made them look so elegant and cute! These colors are so perfect for a guy card too. ~chris
