Valentine Cards

I know, I's after Valentine's Day. What am I doing posting these? Well, I'm extremely late at getting things done this year! These cards were done before the actual day though. *smiles* The top card I made for my husband, Jeff. We had a great Valentine's day (more about that soon). The other card I made for my mom. I got this crazy idea to make the cards using only red, black & white. I'm pretty happy with them.
Nitty Gritty Details:
card #1
  • Love Matters stamp set by SU!
  • black, white & red CS by SU!
  • Pallete Hybrid ink in Black Noir
  • Ticket Corner punch by SU!
  • Giga scalloped oval punch
  • Horizontal Slot punch by SU!
  • Black gingham ribbon
  • sponge

card #2

  • Love Matters stamp set by SU!
  • black, white & red CS by SU!
  • Pallete Hybrid ink in black noir
  • red classic ink, white craft ink
  • Horizontal Slot punch
  • black gingham ribbon, red narrow organdy

Now for my Valentine's evening, which was also my first anniversary! We had dinner at Maggiano's...a wonderful Italian restaraunt...YUMMY! If you ever get a chance to dine there, do it! The portions are huge! We brought home eggplant parmesan and their lasagna (which really does taste like homemade!). During dinner he brought me a dozen deep pink favorite! For Valentine's day he gave me a really pretty bracelet watch. It's in the style of the silver link bracelets and necklaces that *I think* first came from Tiffany's. And for our anniversary he made me a framed picture of the wedding vows he spoke during the wedding!!! We each wrote our own vows, and I love that he framed his. Behind the written words he put a picture of us during the ceremony. *gushy smiley* He is so creative...a definite keeper!!! Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's day!

Yes this is one of my favorite color combos too. I love more red, so the first card is my favorite. They are both pretty though.
Have a wonderful weekend.
