Hi, there!
Just popping in quick to share with you a Valentine card I made for my son.  I think it looks masculine.  Lots of circles, arrows, some twine.  No pink bows or lace on this!  Anyways, it came together fairly quickly with Bo Bunny paper and heart stamp from SU.  The letters are canvas letters from American Crafts.  You can't tell by the photo, but I brushed on Wink of Stella on the letters, circles, and arrows.  Twine from Paper Sweeties and dots from Doodlebug to finish the card.  I'm entering this card over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge
I have a couple more Valentine cards to make.  And, this weekend I'll be making some Valentine sugar cookies for my small group at church...yumm!  Well, that's all for now.  I hope all is well in your part of the world.  Take care!


  1. Love those big dots & your layered focal point--great card for your son, Maria! Those cookies sound good & I know you'll make them beautiful, too!

  2. Great design Maria - this is a super card for your Son and I'm sure he'll love it!

  3. Maria, this is a lovely card and perfect for your son! The papers and detailing are filled with sweet love... as is everything you create. Beautifully done, my friend. Also, I must tell you something. I am unsure how my blogger presence will be for the next tiny bit. Just as things began to calm this week, my sister received a very scary diagnosis. I have taken off this week's DT work and of course my amazing leaders have said to take as long as I'd like to take care of things, but I may try to stay involved so my heart can have the joy that is leaving bloggie love and crafting... despite how hard it feels to make anything. So, if I disappear or do not get here often, I wanted you to know why. Have a beautiful night. :o)

    Hugs and blessings,

  4. Adorable! Love all the circles and dots here! I think your son will love it, too!

  5. Yourson will love it! Polka dots are always great and that little hear tis the perfect addition for a Valentine card; not too girly :)
    I planned some baking too; the weatherforecast is lots of rain. Some comfort food will do :) Stay warm!

  6. Oh so gorgeous!! Your son is sure to love this!
