Nostalgic Valentine

Valentine's Day has a very special place in my heart. No, not because of the reasons one would instantly think of but because it is what brought me to my passion of stamping, stenciling, cardmaking and papercrafting in general! What? Yes you read that right. You are reading this because of Valentine's Day.

Let me explain. You see my wonderful husband and I decided early on that we should tell each other we loved one another every day and not just when Hallmark told us to so we opted not to gifts for Valentine's Day. Well, one year, many moons ago, I wanted to break that rule slightly and make him a card. Hence, I walked in to my local Michael's store, bought a rubber stamp, ink, cardstock...and some $60 later had enough supplies to make him a card! And thus began my journey into this wonderful world of papercrafting! (I bet he regrets the whole not gift buying thing because by now he could have bought me lots and lots of diamonds and still be far less in debt than we are thanks to stamping and stenciling!)

So without further delay and in keeping with the Valentine's theme, I bring you today's Valentine card:
