Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone!! It's been way too long since I posted a new card to my blog...a lot has happened since I last posted. My dad got sick at the end of November and every free moment I had was spent at the hospital with him...after a brief battle with cancer, my dad passed away on January 25th. It's been hard for me since then as I'm trying to take care of everything of his but I have plenty of support from friends and family.

This is the first card that I've made in a very long while and it's a Valentine's card I made for my boyfriend. I've been eyeing this really cute stamp (Eunice and Irving) from Stamping Bella for a while now and I picked it up when I visited the store for the first time last weekend.

I inked it in Memento Ink and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers. I used SU! cardstock (Kraft, Whisper White, and Real Red) and matched it with some Basic Grey patterned paper (Sugar Rush). I used my corner rounder on all of the corners and also used my cute new heart edge punch from Martha Stewart on the patterned paper. To finish off the card, I added some clear baubles that I picked up from Stamping Bella, a heart brad, and some Stickles in Stardust. I think my card turned out pretty cute and I'm sure my boyfriend will appreciate it.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest creation. Hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Valentine's day too!!

I am so sorry to hear about your father. I also lost my father to cancer. Take some time to grieve and lean on those friends. That is what they are there for. Love your card. I hope to see more soon.
