Truly * Madly * Deeply

Hello friends and Happy New Year! You know how you used to say "I will never be like my mother"....well I find myself saying some of the same things I heard her " the older I get, the years go that much faster". She was so right!  Where did the year go?????
Well, it is time for new beginnings and time to think about the next holiday....Valentines Day! You can never have enough love in your life and making Valentines cards puts a smile on my face. 
Who will you be handing a special made card to this year? 

For the card above I wanted something that would be appropriate for a man (as I have 5 men in my life...Dad, Husband, 2 Sons & Grandson). Fun to make and receive (I hope).

Let's go Shopping:
Kraft card stock, Cream card stock
Tim Holtz distress inks - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Penny Black stamps - Circular Design & Raindrops and Kisses
Versafine Ink - Onyx Black
Chipboard Button
Heart Button
Natural twine
Silhouette machine (for Key)

Thanks for peeking...
