'LOVE'.........Happy Valentines Day

Hi Friends.
A fairly quick post today as I have a romantic meal to cook!
Here is the card for hubby.

I took an old dictionary and tore out the page with LOVE on it, cut it down a bit and attached to a piece of white card with glue and seal and then inked round the edges. The love definition was stamped and embossed (can't remember whose stamps they are as I have had them years!) and matted and mounted on foam pads. The heart is a Stampendous stamp  embossed with a red moonglow powder. I pricked round the edges of the card, added the rub on sentiment and mounted on 3D foam for a bit of depth.
Sounds really quick but it seemed to take me ages, but then these minimalistic cards seem to!

 Well I do hope that you are all surviving this terrible weather, I think we have been very lucky up here in the north so far.
Have a wonderful evening and weekend whatever you are doing. I must away and cook.....actually glad we are not turning out in this rain and gales! (must be getting old).

Take care and Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look.
