My Love for You…


Good evening everyone!!  Just popping in with a very special Christmas card I’ve been working on today in between house tours, shopping, baking and card writing :)  It was only a few days ago when I realized I hadn’t made Tony’s card yet!  Yikes!!  I knew I wanted to get into my Verve binders and pick out a “love” sentiment…not a usual choice for a Christmas card, but one definitely for the love of my life on his Christmas card.  The sentiment is from the Love Deepens set and the sweet little “xoxo” is from Love Notes.   This card is also for the fun challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey :)  The “challenge (ahem, cough, cough) is to add GREEN to your card.  We are laughing here because this is one of Aimes’ favourite colours AND because it’s not too difficult for this St. Patrick’s Day baby to do the same :)  Another busy day tomorrow…my son comes home for 5 days and we’ve got lots planned…he’ll be helping me in the studio and with the technical setups of all the new remotes :)  LOL  I hope to sneak a little more inky time in this week too :)  Hope all your preparations are going well :)  So glad you stopped by!!  Christmas hugs,


what’s in it?

stamps: Love Deepens, Love Notes (Verve)

paper: kraft, rustic cream, springmoss (PTI), Season’s Greetings (Echo Park)

ink: onyx (Versafine)

accessories: tree, poinsettia, tab dies (PTI), buttons, twine, felt (PTI), brads (Making Memories), star gem ($ store)

Ahhh I was waiting for this special card, Diva! Love the cards you make for the guys in your life and this one is of no exception! Simply fabulous - bet Tony will love it!
Enjoy that belated birthday cake with Jake, Diva ;D
Thanks so much for joining in our challenge on A Passion for Papertrey too (admittedly not much of a challenge for us LOL!)

Great card and I'm sure Tony will love it :) Great tree and the poinsettia adds a lovely pop of colour. Tree die is great in that DP. Enjoy your time with Jake :)

What a wonderful card for your hubby to receive Christmas morning. Hope you enjoy your son's visit and thanks for all of the wonderful inspiration this year.
Merry Christmas,

How sweet that you make a card for your hubby! I've never done that for Christmas, but might need to. This is an awesome card! I love the poinsettia in felt, and the fabulous tree. Most of all I love the sentiment, and it is perfect. If I don't get back here, have a wonderful, blessed Christmas with your family in your new home!

I haven't made one for MrP =) Guess I should probably do that. LOL We agreed not to buy gifts after out trip to Chicago, but yesterday when I was confirming this to be the case, he said he didn't even buy a card, so maybe I'm alright to slack?! Anyways, this card is a BEAUTY! I'm sure Tony will love it...perfect addition of green, too ;)
