a surprising valentine

I must admit my husband and I don't do Valentines day. I think it's the commercialisation of it that we protest. However I have cooked heart pasta and bought chocolate roses from Aldi in the past as a bit of a laugh. Anyway as I was putting together ideas using the Good Neighbours Sale-A-Bration set I came across Stampin' Up!'s CEO Shelli's Gardner's challenge which was to create a valentines and if possible to use colours other than pink. Well I generally don't do pink either so having used Rose Red, Bashful Blue and Going Grey on this card it seemed to fit. The little house with the heart on it and this sentiment from the Hostess Set "Sweet Little Sentiments" on the little road in the card all seemed to point to me giving it to my hubby as, dare I say it, a "Valentine's" card. Perhaps I'll give it to him the day before and say it's just an I love you card. Problem is he reads my blog everyday so I think I'll have to give it to him before I post this!!! I love this little saying, and being on the road signifies us travelling the journey of marriage and life together heart to heart and hand in hand.
Inside I have written "where ever your heart is that's my home" plus a few other things but I won't tell you those :)

Kirrily I just LOVE what you've done with this set, the card is superb. Colours and layout are perfect! Definitely on my list to case. TFS.

There's an interest singing competition on in Sydney/Melbourne which might be a good way of spending Valentine's Eve. Do check out these videos.

Hey Great minds think alike! I made a card with this set and made a little road in grey too!
