Love You Tons

Thursday, January 29, 2009

It's Thursday...finally!! I'll be at work for the morning, then I'm going home to take a well deserved nap! Have to take advantage of that since my daugther will be at daycare, hubby will still be at work and I don't want to spend the rest of the weekend recuperating!

I have another Doggone Stamps card to show you all today. And it's my first (well, second if you count yesterday's monster card) Valentines Day card of the year! I colored this guy up two weeks ago now and because of work, I've only just now had the time to make him into a card (I actually created this two nights ago after I got home from work at 11pm - can you say crazy?!)

Don't you just LOVE this little guy's cheeks and his little belly?? I was going for more of a masculine card or rather a card a man wouldn't mind giving, but then I remembered the comedy sketch by the HILARIOUS Kevin James about how men don't like buying cards for women.

Speaking of Kevin James, I have a story to share with you: When we were at the mall weekend before last, hubby and I were in the elevator with another couple and a security guard and all of a sudden the other couple started giggling. I look over and the woman was obviously laughing at the poor security guard and says 'Mall Cop". I wanted to bust out laughing, but then I refrained because the poor guy looked like he'd been called that 1000 times already!

Back to the card: as usual I colored this image using my SU inks and aquapainter. You may have noticed that my shadow isn't black. I tend to use Vintage Violet for my shadows on the ground. It makes for a more softer looking shadow than if I had used black ink. I sponged the patterned paper with my Distress Ink 'Walnut Stain', added a decorative edge with some scissors and popped on the sentiment (look Ma, a real sentiment!) which I found at Joannes, and a heart button from Michaels. Voila - a card that the hubby can give me! LOL

By the way, you might have noticed that my blog list for the Doggone Stamps design team got a little longer. Take a peek at their blogs to see some more very cool cards and projects.

Hope you're all having a great week. I have a funny Hanna Stamps card for you tomorrow, so come back, ok?? :D
