Valentines Day

Dave and I had a really nice Valentine's Day this year. Since it was on a Saturday, that meant that we were able to take it easy all day, without scurrying around. I worked a little in the basement and then came upstairs to make his card.

Then later, we went to have dinner at this little jazz restaurant in town, The Wedge. The food is great and the atmosphere is so nice and romantic. The two pictures below were taken after we finished dinner. The first, I took. And then this fella from another table came over and took a second (and third, fourth, and fifth!). Poor Dave, is so incredibly uncomfortable in front of a camera!

The above is the one I took. I'm wearing the necklace and earrings he gave me!

The above is the best one that the fella took. In most of the other ones, either I had my eyes closed or Dave looked frightened!

Here is the card I gave Dave. I made it 3D encased in some recycled packaging. Dave's favorite color is green, so besides making it look "fresh", I also wanted to include his favorite color. And I really like deep rich pinks. He liked it. And I meant it.

I really love him. Looking into his eyes still makes my heart patter.

ah! that was super sweet:)i love the card. you always do a great job with sponges. are the stamps stampin up? great way to use green without it being overpowering and "super green".
our v-day was low key. we went out to a nice dinner or friday night to avoid the crowds. i made ben chicken parmesan for dinner last night and then we watched a movie. I started feeling sick (sore throat) yesterday. and now it's developed into something nasty. my throat is on fire. ick. i've been sick so much this year.
ben is brewing beer today and i am laying low:)
You guys look so cute together. Looks like you had fun. We did b-day parties all day and then my daughter got sick so I spent the night with her. Not very romantic but we where still together :) I really like your card too. It's super cute! TFS it with us. Looking forward to more post. Take care!

Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
