Belated Happy Valentine's!

Ok, I know this is DAYS late, but happy Valentine's!! You would think it is a little late to celebrate but I have been off the planet this week; I had a stats assignment due in today, and today was also the last day of my job so I have been rushing all week to try and get as much done as possible! I wish there were more hours in the day, seriously! But I am done now, and ready for the longest sleep of my life tonight :)

So for Valentine's Day, Df already had an idea for the gift he wanted (an xBox game!) and I wanted equivalent value in scrappy supplies(!); however, he was insistent that he wanted to make me a card from scratch. I wasn't sure that it was actually going to happen, but he asked me for some card blanks and said that he would help himself to some scrappy supplies.

So the finished result was....

...this!! I absolutely loved it, it was so adorable that he made a card! If you look close you'll see inking, stamping, punching and ribbons... fact he said that if he had been able to find my 'rivets' (eyelets!) he would have added some of those too :)

He even decorated the envelope!!
So much effort, I was so happy when I saw this :) will treasure it forever :)

OMG! That is so pickin' cute!! Tell Gav he has a real knack for design, I really love the way he laced the ribbon and the randon paint on the front is cool! Here you thought he was playing XBox all that time and not paying attention :) Bummer about the rivets, would like to see where they would have fitted in LOL (Richie calls them that too :)

I am so happy for you and your new adventure! Enjoy some well deserved time off, hopefully we can skype during the week!
