VLV Feb Sketch-Week 1

Hi there and no you are NOT seeing things, this is my second post today after an impromptu blog break. I am playing "catch up" and nearly passed out when I realized that Valentine's Day is tomorrow. I am feverishly making cards for my immediate family and the weekly Viva la Verve sketches are perfect for jump starting my mojo. Here's Amber's fabulous sketch and I love the horizontal layout with the three panels. It seemed the perfect fit for a masculine card and I'm including a snap of the inside of my card as well because I truly am *twitterpated* about the awesome stamps that Verve released in January (hubby too!).

I am partial to this card because it is for my main squeeze, my darling husband, and I can hardly believe we are approaching our 26th wedding anniversary in May. Our love has grown over the years and I cherish the commitment we made to one another the day we married, it is priceless. Over the years he has shown his love for me through the traditional gifts of flowers, romantic dinners and keepsake gifts but it is the past two years that have made me love him more. My parents have experienced some "hurdles" concerning their health, both mentally and physically and recently we had to move my Dad in with us. He never hesitated but supported me in this endeavor all the way. There's been some tough days but we've gotten through them together and if it is possible I truly love him more today than the day I married him. I'm a lucky girl!

I'll be back tomorrow with one more Valentine card and a fun project that I made for my husband and children. See ya soon!

Your post is so sweet! It's good to see that 26 years later, you love him even more! We're approaching 18 years, although it doesn't seem that long! Glad we both have 'keepers'!
Enough mushy stuff...on to your lovely card! The three panels are so pretty and that black trim is gorgeous! The inside is beautiful with the heart trim and the stamping too!
