Valentine's Day Saturday Sketch

Happy Valentine's Day!

Do you have special plans with your sweetie? We are going to afternoon tea together. Yes, he will actually do this with me, AND he'll enjoy it! I'm so LUCKY! I told my hubby that I didn't want a gift (preparing to be poor...relatively speaking), I just wanted an organized garage. We have so much junk (read: he keeps so much junk that just piles up), and we (he) never seems to go through it or at least doesn't make much of a dent. He did put together some Costco shelves a few weeks back, and today we threweverything into a box and onto a shelf. At some point, we (mostly he) will actually have to go through the boxes, but in the meantime, it feels much more organized. I have several other organizing tasks on my to do list. All this is leading up to clearing out a bunch of stuff from the baby room so that we actually can put together the nursery. Is this what they call "nesting" perhaps? Well, onto today's sketch...

For this card, I used Karen Lockhart's beautiful rosebud cupcake stamp. I colored the image with my Copics, ran a glaze gel pen over the rosebuds, and also added a few stickles. You can't really see the glaze or stickles in this photo though. The sentiment and little hearts are from a Stampendous clear stamp Cupcake set. Belatedly, I realized that I won't be giving this valentine to my cupcake. It's really just too girly to make a good valentine for a boy! Oh well!

Very pretty card! I love your getting organized plans! I don't do it myself often, but I love it when it's done!

Awesome card! All the best with the organizing/nesting! I love when things are organized, but sometimes it's hard to keep it that way. When are you due?
