From Me To You

Happy Valentine's Day!!

For many today is a day of flowers, candy, and oodles of romance.  My husband is the most non-romantic person I've ever met.  We have never celebrated Valentine's Day together.  The fact that he even wished me a Happy Valentine's Day before he left for work this morning was shocking in and of itself.

It does make me sad because I love flowers, candy, and romance (what girl doesn't?!) but I like to say that I traded all that for true love.  Just knowing that my husband is the love of my life is a gift in itself and he doesn't need a day to show me that.  He shows me every day that he loves me and for that I am blessed. ❤️

I am also blessed with two amazing little boys that have been awesome since Mom has been sick.  I wanted to do something special for them since these past few weeks have been so rough so I made them each a card to show my love and gratitude.  I posted my oldest son's Valentine's card a few days ago and today I am showing the card I made for my youngest son.

Since I still hadn't cleaned up my scraps from my last card I decided to stick with last week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors but used this week's Mojo Monday Challenge as my sketch.  I wanted the cards to be similar yet different.  Just like my boys...

I kept many of the same elements like the die-cut hearts and the two silver sequins but changed up the sentiment, paper, and ribbon.  I chose the black ribbon for a specific reason that I think my youngest will find amusing.  Right now he is obsessed with dressing up, particularly in dress shirts, and he is obsessed with ties.  I tried to make the ribbon look like a black tie so his card is "dressed up" like he always is.

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps Love From Me digital set which is free but TOMORROW is the last day for you to download it so head over there and snag it while you can!

Thank you to everyone for your get well wishes over the past several days.  I am still pretty sick and actually have a doctor's appointment this afternoon to see if I still have the flu or if it's turned into something else.  My chest hurts pretty bad and I have a horrible cough so I'm sure it's turned into an upper respiratory infection or bronchitis.  Fun, huh?  Hopefully my doctor can get me on an antibiotic that will kick this crud for good!  So many people are sick right now!  I don't know what's going on this month but I am ready for all of us to be better!

Here's to a wonderful and blessed day of LOVE!
