Our household has for some years been completely 'valentine free' - I always felt bad that dear husband arrived bearing flowers and gifts when it was HIS birthday!
So we (or rather I) called a halt to all the 'sloppy stuff' - there was never any need as he is a romantic soul really and flowers have always been bought at various times without any special occasions to prompt the purchase!
So Valentines cards are not high on the agenda for me at all... but recently I have been 'guesting' for Beccy's Place (and for some reason the last scheduled post did not appear at all..god bless Mr Blogger) so this time I didn't take a chance scheduling it to publish 'on the day' and decided to just create a new post the day Beccy released her stamp............. Then I forgot!!!!!!!!!!!
(Blaming the brain cells again...........)
So an apology to Beccy and finally here is my card using this week's released image -
Very tongue in cheek isn't it? But he really IS a cute little green frog I think! (and you can get him here)
I printed him out and layered him onto a downloaded background which was highlighted with promarkers.
I made him a rather grand gold embossed crown with some teeny red gems (cos after all no handsome prince would leave home without a gem encrusted head adornment!).
Matted onto a green frame then layered onto some papers from my stash.
The sentiment was PC generated, secured with a scrap of polka dot ribbon and finally I finished with a couple of pearls and a green pearl heart.
