An early valentine

I busied myself making a valentine card for my husband (who else?!) today.

I had put together the typewriter a while back using a Tim Holtz die and a number of pieces of inked card. When I saw this card on the Paperchase website, it gave me the idea for his Valentine card.

As you can see, I've gone for a grungier look, to suit a masculine card, and added a few other bbits from my stash.  The stamps are a small set of typeface with a tiny punched heart at the end of the message.  Frames are embossed and cut out (new Anna Griffin set shown on QVC this week; couldn't resist) and the chalkboard messages are also Anna Griffin stamps.

Hope he likes it!

A good idea using the type writer on your valentine card . It's so different & so much better then anything from a shop. I'm sure you other half will be pleased with it.
