I Love You More

Happy Valentine's Day!! I am a bit of a romantic, as is my hubby. So you would think this day would be a big deal for us. It's not, because we like to do little acts of kindness for each other most every day. But maybe we should make it more special... we all like an excuse to do something extra special for those we love!

This is the card I made for my hubby. There is a little private meaning to this :) We get into a little playful fight with this phrase, and the winner is the one we says it last. Silly , I know. But silly is good for the soul. Really. It is. Look it up. ;)

I finally broke down and got the Houndstooth  embossing folder, and it is so perfectly masculine, I just love it! ANd reinked my Craft White inkpad and used the back of a plastic spoon to really rub it in. Boy Howdy, what a difference that made!

 I will have to think of something witty and sweet to put on the inside, before he gets home in 4 hours! I don't think I will share that with you all, it might get a little X rated, even after all these years ;) We have been together for 23 years, will be 24 this summer, and will celebrate our 22nd anniversary this June. How did time go so fast?!
I hope you all have a great day, whether it is with a honey, or blissfully free of commitment!

Great card! My husband and I have a similar silly thing going with that phrase. It's a nice way to get back in touch with each other after a long day apart.
