In all my busy preparations for the Festival of Love, creating cards for various townspeople, buying treats infused with cocoa and sugar to bring to the village party, I almost forgot to craft a card for my lord husband! That misstep would have surely spelled disaster, but luckily I caught my blunder in time. I rushed to my crafting chambers, gathered my supplies and set straight to work.
card I started by stamping the image from the Unity “Stick With Me” set
then stamped The Greeting Farm’s “Miss Anya Lounge” inside it. I
coloured them all up with Prismacolors and cut it out. I grabbed some
different shades of pink paper from my scrap bin and stamped some hearts
using the Unity “Loads of Love” set, outlining them with a white pen.
Lastly I added some pink bakers twine that I’ve had in my stash for the
last two years and some clear buttons that are just as old. It seems
like whenever I buy a mixed bag of buttons, ¾ are either black or clear
and the rest are actually different colours, so I’m always super happy
when I get to use up any black or clear buttons from my stash.
the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” set
and added some more hearts from the “Loads of Love Set.” Instead of
throwing away the scraps from trimming the pink panels to size, I glued
them on the inside.
the envelope I stamped more of the hearts to make it match the card. I
honestly don’t know why I bother decorating envelopes for cards that are
for my husband...oh yes...the ocd and needing things to match...that's why.

the Festival of Love being tomorrow, I was cutting it close, but I
managed to complete the card on time. Now to organize all the treats and
cards that I shall be bringing to the smallfolk that work at the horse
wagon repair shop in the village tomorrow (something I also left till the last minute). I have a feeling it’s going to be a late night. Stupid procrastination.
