February is such a crazy month of birthdays for us here that sometimes Valentines Day gets a little neglected. I decided since I was awake that I would make M a valentine card. I started off using a piece of 8 1/2 x11 printed paper (The Paper Studio) that I got at Hobby Lobby (be proud, it is Wednesday and I have not been there this week *wink*). I chose the paper because the caramel and red said male to me. I wanted a male card. I liked the faux stitching on it, but I decided to make it more real looking by piercing it for real. It helped a lot. I stamped the "be mine" circles from SU's Tag Time set. The ink color did not come out quite the color I wanted, so I punched some hearts (with a punch I got in the Target $1 spot), and covered up the darker ink color to make it match better. Then it was just a matter of layering it on the cardstock and adding ribbons. The caramel ribbon as well as the wine color are both from one of texasjodylynn's swaps and the caramel gingham is of course by Stampin' Up! Now I just have to think of something really cute to write inside and then figure out what to make him for breakfast! Hope you and your valentine have a special day!!! *smooches*

Oh, and don't miss my other post of today with What's for Dinner -- it is SO YUMMY looking, I know you won't be able to resist it!!!!
