Happy Valentines Day my Darling

Hello There Folks!

I am back in the world of the living and hopefully Mr Chestin Fection and his buddies have gone on a hike for some time!  I am still not A1 but getting there and tomorrow I shall be going back in to the family of folks known as "work"!  Yeah I know!

I just about managed to drag my aching butt into my abandoned Craft Room on Thursday afternoon for the first time in over two weeks, to put Mr Hettie's Valentine's Day card together.  Unfortunately, not being out and about I was unable to get him a pressie too, so he had to make do with hugs and hopefully no bugs!

So here it is....

I used one of my Sweet Poppy Stencils and some Martha Stewart glitter to make the tree, having cut the background using an XCut die.  I stamped the arrows using WOW embossing powder and made a banner out of a Snippet of cardstock, doodled around the edge and added some Chit Chat stickers.  Oh yes, I also added some glossy accents to one heart and sprinkled some silver glitter on to it.  Well, it is a special anniversary for us later this year!

This I stamped on the inside of the card.  The colour is not brilliant, blame the dull weather for that!  Again I used my embossing powder of choice - WOW!

And this lovely sloppy stamp went on the right hand side inside.  

Me?  I got spoilt with porridge in bed, made with Alpro (other milks are available, but I could not have dairy milk within two hours of my antibiotics), then Mr Hettie brought me a gorgeous card, a huge Boofle and later flowers!  I fink he loves me!

Right then, off to see what is happening in the Snippets Playground as the banner was from my Snippets basket.  

Have a great week everyone!

Oh, so very pretty. Mr. Hettie was very fortunate to get such a beautiful card and the big hug. You can do a pressie later if need be. Sounds like you did quite alright with the holiday your own self too, and I'm Mr. Chestin is getting pushed out of residence. He's no fun to have around. Don't overdo at work, and TFS such a beautiful card. Hugs

Hopefully you gave him HUGS and not BUGS. Mr. Chestin Fection and his gang of hackers is no fun a'tall! They hung around me for most of January. Hopefully you are truly over and done with the likes of them. Gorgeous glittery card with its special silver heart. Methinks Mr. Hettie likes you too!
