Anti Valentines Card with So Suzy Stamps, Distress Inks and Distress Oxide

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you celebrating or do you think that it is one of those unnecessary days? Fair warning upfront: I’m not huge on Valentine’s day, so I decided to create a rather snarky anti-valentine’s card.

Valentines Day Card for my Hubby

… my hubby planned something for me and I wanted to give something back, at least a little card 🙂 So I grabbed the new MFT Ewe are the best stamp and the stitched cloud edges to create a Valentines Day card in “seventh heaven” (Do you know this saying or is that a German thing?).
