Valentines for my {other} guys

Well, I've shown you the Valentine cards I made for my two oldest sons, so now I'm going to show you the ones I made for my youngest son and my hubby. Just like the previous two, these were both quick and simple. (Guy cards...no further explanation needed, right? lol)

Here's the one I made for my loving and handsome hubby (who brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers last night): I used the current sketch challenge by Lizzie Anne Designs, where they added a twist...to make it a masculine Valentine card.... I really liked working with this sketch and think it came together nicely.

And this one's for my ten-year old: The colors look a little off in the pic, but they blend quite a bit better in real life. Looking at it here, the grass reminds me of a heart-rate line on a hospital monitor --oh, well...if you're going to see it that way, it does have to do with hearts so that's okay, right? lol (Kinda like my daughter seeing silverware instead of trees on her Valentine card here. lol) He loves the card my mom made for him, so I'm hoping he'll like this one too. ;)

Well, I'm in a big hurry (hubby's on his way home from work and I still need to wrap his Valentine gifts -- yikes!), so I'm gonna skip the details on these. I do have to give a shout out to one of my bloggin' buddies Tanis Geisbrecht -- she designed the cute heart tree that you see above, as well as all the other cute stamps of the Love Birdies set (and she's designed a whole LOT more stamp sets than that...talk about talented!!). As always, though, if you have any questions on them, please feel free to ask.

I do have one more Valentine card to share, but am going to wait until tomorrow to post it since I don't think my parents have received it yet. Stay tuned.... ;)

Thanks so much for coming by, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
