I decided to turn the *heart*U sideways 'cause he gets a kick out of "unordinary" things I do. I did risk the red heart... ya think he'll mind??? Hee Hee
The deer (reindeer actually) was in a Christmas stamp set that StampinUp introduced this winter but I just love him. He looks kinda... elegant, I think. Ooops... I didn't say that in the same post as "manly" did I? Ya... well... as hubby would say, 'some things just don't get said together... like... man and pink!' HA HA Oh and for the record, I didn't use any ribbon on this. Instead I used my copper cording (cording.. ya.. sounds like a man word!) to hold the hodgepodge hardware in place.
Regardless, I love the deer! I won't tell him if you don't! Shhhhhh

You can see I placed my small scalloped circle just over the larger one so that when the sides of the card fold in the larger scallop kind of "locks" under it. Open the card... I was hoping to cheer her a bit so after I decided to send some "love" I thought I should also make her envelope bright and cheerful as well. I love using these tiny flower stamps. These are called the "Romance Collection"... sadly, I don't remember where on the web I found them but if I do I'll post a note later. Ha! I realize it's hard to see the edges of this envelope but it's the normal size for an A2 card. Hope this does the trick and at least makes her smile and know her Aunt is always thinking of her.

I got this idea from an Oriental Trading catalog but they used plastic snap together bulbs. The poem was from their kit.
Bette was one of my biggest fans in respect to my handmade cards and gifts so I have dedicated this blog site to her. She will forever be in my heart and my memories. Thanks for looking.

Now I have to tell you... I decided to do one for my husband as well. My husband and I have this ongoing "laugh" EVERY time I make a card. I bring it up from the craft room... (ESPECIALLY if it's one I'm particularly proud of how it turned out!) and show it to him. Then... EVERY time... he opens the card and goes... "OH LOOK! There's nothing inside!" HA! So... here is my little surprise to him... (before I write his note, obviously... hee hee).
Ok... that's all folks... nighty night!
