Very quick Valentine's post...

Hello Monday Readers!

It is the day before Valentine's Day and I need to get my Hubby's wonderful Valentine posted!! I used the "Yours Truly" file from to make my first explosion box card. By the way, they are sponsoring the Light up My Life Blog Hop today!

So here it is :-) I used his favorite color - no pinks for him!

He has grown several rose gardens in the past. We can't have one here because of too much shade, so he put one in for his older sister! Therefore, I felt the paper roses were great for him :-) These roses are actually fun and fairly easy to make - there is a tute to follow. I even stamped them on the four sides. It is a old rubber stamp I probably got at Michael's. On the inside, I used the shapes that come with the file and stamped Valentine wishes on each one on the first layer. The second layer spells out LOVE. I am not going to go into any more details :-) This is our 44th Valentine's together - 2 years dating and 42 years married! I will have to say we are still best friends :-)

Hope you love the card as much as I do! I am so sporatic on posting because we are deep into bathroom remodeling and I am David's gofer, so that keeps me away from the computer. And now I have company coming for the long weekend :-) I am going to do better in the future :-) A little organization in my life would help!!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all if I don't post tomorrow!!

Kitty Hugs, Judy

  3. Hi Judy!

    What a neat box! I love how you added all the dimension to it, very neat! If I didn't know better I would guess that rose was real. You really did a great job with the detailing of it!

    I wanted to let you know that I am passing on a blog award to you so you can add it to your blog. Just stop on over to pick it up when you get a chance! ;)
