last Valentine and award

Are you sick of Valentine's yet? As card makers the holidays are all about the cards, but you get inundated with too much and then you become sick of them.

Anyways, my DH asked me to make a card for his mother. I used a sketch from SCS 2 weeks ago that I never got too and some scraps I had.

stamps: polka dot punches (SAB)

paper: prints pack (hostess), PIP

ink: white craft, then used clear embossing powder

accessories: stylized hardware, large heart punch, red grosgrain, designer label punch.

* I did not have valentine or love you sentiment to fit inside designer label punch, so I just cut the words of and attached.

Christina, gave me this award. The rules that go along with the award are to say one thing nice about your husband and then 6 best things in your life.
My husband although at times makes me want to pull my hair out after almost 14 years together he still makes me laugh and humor can pull you through the tough and good times!
The six things I happy about in my life:
1) my husband
2) my kids
3) my friends
4) Stampin Up
5) my health
6) my brother and sister
Now I need to pass this on to 5 more bloggers:
