You Make Me Smile

Oh no, it's Monday again. Is it me or does the weekend just whooosh by at sonic speed? Maybe what we really need is a 3-day weekend. ... sigh ... Until such time, I shall take comfort in playing Mojo Monday.

Today I made a card for my hubby. He can share it with Peanut since both of them have been behaving very well all week. It'll serve as a Valentine's day card. We're not the gushing sort, but I think this card will let him know what I really think of him. (I hope he has the good sense to continue dropping his socks in the laundry bin!)

The papers are from WMRK's Travel Light pad. As this is a
masculine card, I'm keeping the embellies to a minimum
with just some twine. 

The balloons are from Clearly Besotted's Make A Wish set,
stamped with Versacolor Tropical Green, Hyacinth and
Memento Elderberry. The sentiment is from the "Tag Along"
set stamped with  Versafine Black Onyx.

On the inside I stamped a couple more balloons in keeping
with card front.

I'm taking my card to these linky parties:

Mojo Monday #329: Sketch
Make It Monday #175: AG
Hobby Cutz Challenge #32: Lots of Layers
Clearly Besotted #7: Love
Gem of A Challenge #111: For the Boys
Creative Knockout: Tag, You're It
Dream Valley #73: Boys / Men
Frosted Designs Friday Challenge: Polkadots

That's from me today. I hope you'll be able to stop by tomorrow for a yummy Tuesday Throwdown post. Thanks for stopping by and a have a ovely Monday.
