A friend asked if I could make a special valentine for his spouse that included a saying that is an *inside joke* between the two of them ... instead of being his *funny valentine* ... she's his *funniest valentine*. I made two version for him to choose from ... which one would you pick?
For the first one I went a bit more traditional using cupid (which is also the name of the font ... it just seemed appropriate) and hearts. Papers are Carta Bella's Devoted Collection. I added a stamped heart with wings & some punched hearts to embellish. I was inspired by the Sketch at Make My Monday (but I won't be linking-up because I strayed from the sketch ... and strayed from a CAS design ... but I wanted to give them inspirational credit).
For my second one, I'm joining in the All About Love Challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays ... because this one is pretty whimsical ... actually probably closer to down-right silly ... but I love it.
For this one I used a square children's valentine that I picked-up last year because I thought they were just too stinkin' cute to pass up. There was a tiny heart in his hand, but I replaced it with a larger conversation heart die cut attached with foam. I still printed the sentiment in Cupid font but added a couple of die cut arrows from this fun new purchase. I used this week's sketch from The Paper Players (which is a CAS keeper).
And I almost forgot ... the winner of the goodie box is (someone who likes my second favorite valentine candy):
Your card is smashing! I like the "flowing" sentiment with the layered circles. Congrats on having your cards featured on the CHA boards! :) My fav Valentine candy is Brach's cinnamon jelly hearts. I spied a bag last week and it's here with me, now. Hee!
