Hello all! If you missed my earlier post for my Guest Spot at My Craft Spot you can click here.
Several of you have inquired about my earlier health problems and I really appreciate your concern. I have improved in some ways, but still have days that I am just totally out of commission. This week has been a rough one and you might have noticed that I didn't have a card posted yesterday for Mo's. I just couldn't do it. It's the first time I have missed my Mo post and it felt so wrong but I just couldn't craft. Thank goodness I was ahead on all the other projects that got posted this week including this card which will be going to my sweet hubby this year.
This fun Cupid is from Art Impression Stamps. Gotta love them Steve Urkle style pants now.
Those of you who are closer to my age might have picked up on the song lyric in the title. I haven't zapped you with a "stick in your head" lyric title in a while so enjoy. hee hee
I hand cut the large hearts and did a lot of distressing. For embellishments I used the two heart dies from the My Craft Spot Small Alphabet dies set. One was covered in red Stickles. I also cut out two sets of "XO" using the same die set and added them to the largest heart. They are covered with Glossy Accents for some shine. I used some die cut and punched floral elements and a paper rose with a couple of stick pins from Maya Road. At the bottom of the card I used a matching pair of the large and small die shapes from the Tiny Banners and Toppers die set to create some hinges.
Couldn't you just pinch those chubby rosy cheeks on this lover boy!
