A Valentine for my husband...

The cards I make for my husband are usually simple in design...and this one is no exception. I used the "Birds on a Wire" Martha Stewart punch for the birds. I received this punch as a Christmas gift from one of my daughters.

Martha Stewart Crafts - Edge Punch - Birds On A Wire
I am so loving this punch! It's easy to just trim the birds' tails from the cardstock or even trim away most of the birds, as I have done for this card.

Here's a peek at the folded banner that I created for my sentiment. I inked the edges just a bit to make it stand out a little more.

Just yesterday, I received some La La Land folded banner dies in the mail that I had ordered.  I'm excited to use them in the future, rather than making my own.

The sparkly little hearts that I used above the birds and near the sentiment were some dimensional stickers that I got at a big discount last year after Valentine's day. They have really been coming in handy this year.

I don't recall who makes the cloud patterned paper. What I do remember is that when I found it online a couple of years ago, I ordered quite a few pieces. I've been using--and loving--it ever since.

I still have more Valentines to share with you, and I'll try to get them all up and on the blog before the big day.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
