#TGIF249 Wild About You

What are you making for Valentine's Day this year?  Whatever "lovely" creation you craft you have a week to share it at #TGIF249 challenge site.

So you don't have a Valentine stamp set?  Me neither, but that didn't stop me.  Look through your stash and you will be surprised how easy, and fun, it is to turn anything into a love letter.  When scouring through my stamps the Animal Outing Set jumped out and seemed perfect.  It reminded me of the old Valentine cards from when I was in elementary school.  Do you remember those days filling out a Valentine for each classmate?  Did you worry about trying to find the right one for your friend, the boy you thought was cute, or setting aside the dorkiest one for the kid that bugged you?  

Once I had my stamp set, I went to work looking in my pattern paper stash for just the right feel to set the mood.  The flamingo and monstera leaf print from the Tropical Oasis pack was spot on.  The colors nod to Valentine, but don't scream anything too girlie or traditional.

Next up, layout.  Why not case the catalog.  On page 12 of the Creativity is Calling Annual SU! Catalog there is a perfect card to case.  So, perfect I've cased it before.

The inside is just as cute.

Truly, this is a perfect guy card for my main man.

Ya think?

He woke up that way.
