Moose You!

German Phrase of the Day: Ich mochte ihn heiraten. = I would like to marry him. And I did! However, this year we are apart for Valentine's day (probably a relief to him since that gets him off the hook as he says!) So, I left him a card or sweets for each day I'm gone and he's home.

This card is one I made for a Valentine's swap, and I was so happy with how it turned out, I kept one to give to my dh! Isn't it stinkin' cute?? I really love simple cards, and this one can't be beat for simplicity. Yet, it's still really cute! I made the lot of them in about 45 minutes!! The most time consuming part was cutting out the heart.

I used the Sending Thoughts of Love set to stamp the X's and O's on the background of the pretty in pink layer first. Then, stamped the moose with Chocolate Chip ink onto whisper white. I then layered that onto an ever so slightly larger layer of Purely Pomegranate, and then put that onto the much larger chocolate chip layer. I tied the ribbon around, then mounted this onto the card. Lastly, I stamped the heart with pomegranate ink on pomegranate paper and cut it out. It's popped up next to the moose. Super easy, but super cute! And, perfect for me who can't be with my honey for Valentine's Day this year.

Ok...I'm all packed up to head down to Captiva, but I still need to get my parents and daughter packed up. I'm hoping we'll leave soon though. So, my next post will be coming from beachside! :-D I can't wait!!!
