A card, some recycling and a peek!

I’ve been a busy girl today in spite of still feeling under the weather.  When will this crud leave?  Anyway, I’ve started preparing for my annual 14 days of love for my husband.  Everyday I try to have a little gift or treat for him on the 14 days leading up to Valentines Day.  He says he looks forward to it every year.  A couple of years ago I made him a Valentine Love Box that I pull out each year to put his little treats in.  I’ll have to show you all this because I don’t think I’ve share it.  Anyway today I made the first of 14 Valentines for him.  It’s a style of card I’ve never done before and is called a trifold card—I think.  It turn out very nice and I don’t worry about my husband peeking at it because he doesn’t read my blog.  But first I want to give you a sneek peek at a Valentine’s project I hope to share in the next couple of days.




Also I wanted to share some trash that I intend on recycling into Valentine’s projects.  What would you do with these?

P1070795And no, I didn’t eat the WHOLE Big Box meal from Taco Bell!  Bleethp! I’ve got some interesting ideas about these pieces of trash! 

Now it’s time for the card.  I’m sorry I should have called this post “A Peek, some trash, and some love.  Anyway, I hope you like the card.


There are so many Cricut cuts on this card!  The hearts are from Gypsy Font and are cut at 3 inches for the largest one.  The birds are from the Disney Princess Happily Ever After cart.  With all the bird carts out, I don’t have a single one.  I’m going to have to change that!  The font is also Gypsy, and I welded and maneuvered the letters with my Gyspy.  The photo corners are from one of the first carts released, Jasmine.  It was the first cart I bought after getting my baby bug.  Ah, the old days when you could say you had all the Cricut carts and they numbered under 15. Of course I could never say that!

The paper is a stack that is exclusive from My Minds Eye for Hobby Lobby called Love Nest. I picked it up today with my %40 off coupon. It’s a nice glitter stack and the colors are not all pink and feminine, so I think it will work for some of my Valentines projects.  The card stock was all from my scrap drawers. I’ve got to use those scraps up though my green drawer just keeps getting fuller. 

I used my threading water punch for the green cardstock to give a little more interest to this card.  I think it turned out quite nice! 

Here are some more pictures:

How neat that you give your hubbie 14 days of love before Valentine's Day!! That is such a great thing to do! I love the tri-fold card. I've never done them myself but yours looks awesome!
