Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great day and maybe have some plans for the weekend ! I'm dying to get out of the house with Moriko. It feels like forever since we went for a long walk. The sidewalks have been covered with a sheet of ice making it pretty much impossible for me. Maybe some spikes in my shoes would help! The snow is melting today so by tomorrow I should be good to go.
I'm playing along with the Reverse Confetti monthly Sketch For You To Try! You know I'm a sucker for a sketch challenge and I love Reverse Confetti stamps. Warning: Alternative Valentine Alert! I made this one for my DH. Normally he is my "little crab" because just being honest here.. he doesn't have the sunniest disposition. My guy is a "working man" - he's working outside rain or shine, and never fails to tell it like it is. He's not a romantic, but he knows how to make me laugh. I know he'll take any sort of Valentine I give him.... even if it's pink and flowery, but I know he will like this one better.
Let "Always and Forever" come on the radio and he'll be singing along to me. If we're at a wedding he'll drag me on the dance floor. I know that song just makes him happy so this sentiment is a winner.
So why the alligator? Alligators mean vacation. We usually head down south when we do go (South Carolina or Florida) - and we usually have a competition for who spots the first alligator. They remind us both of good times!
I added a few embellishments like google eyes, gem heart (because I know he has one even when he's hiding it), and some wood look sequins.
Isn't the best part of card making being able to personalize your creations for the special people in your life? I can't wait to see what you make this Valentine's season!
