A Wooden Valentine

There is a still sadness that has descended over New England today.  It was a good game, though.  Just REALLY wish it had ended slightly differently.  LOL! 

But...alas, one cannot dwell on such things...SO...let's have some fun with a Valentine's Day card with precisely ZERO pink, red, purple, or any of those colors one might consider to be tradition.  Actually...how about brown.  with just a touch of buttercup.  Does that sound Valentine'sey to you?  No?  Well.....I think you may be convinced....


Wooden Heart Valentine


I TOLD you SO!!!!  Tee-hee!  That GORGEOUS background paper is from October Afternoon and came straight out of my Scrapbook Circle Remember This kit!  Those fabulous hearts?  TOTALLY Retro Cafe Art!  I LOVE THEM!!!!  You can get them with holes or without.  You totally need to check them out!  I used two without and then tied a little twine bow on one with a hole.  I love it  The twine is from The Twinery and I created the nice, evenly spaced holes using the Sew Easy tool.  That gorgeous lace?  May Arts, of course!


Wooden Valentine (detail 1)


I kind of love making non-traditional type cards.  I think this one may go to The Hubbums.  I kind of love it!  I am also entering this one into the CARDS Valentine card challenge.  I hope you have a super happy Monday!  See you again tomorrow!
