Changito's LOVE Balloon!

Have I mentioned that I LOVE making Valentines? :) Here is the one I made for my DH (aka MW - Mr Wonderful). You've just gotta love these huggable little Changito monkeys by Stampendous. This stamp could be used for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment in the balloon or leaving it blank. Wouldn't it make a cute birthday, thinking of you or friendship card too?

This card is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" using Stampin Up Chocolate Chip cardstock. The pink and brown polka dot paper is from my stash...most likely from a DCWV stack. I've used my rectangle Spellbinder Nestibilities dies to cut and emboss the white cardstock and the chocolate chip piece it's layered on. You almost don't notice the large brown eyelets in the bottom left corner. I was hoping they would give it a more "manly" look. :) Did you notice the ribbon? It's by American Crafts and I especially *love* how it matches the paper and image! I doubt MW will notice, but oh well! LoL

Do you have any special plans for celebrating Valentine's Day? I would love to hear what they are! I'm taking decorated heart cut-out cookies to the office and I'm sure they'll be a hit. (duh, any food is a hit where I work!) :) MW and I don't have our romantic evening planned yet. Do you have any ideas for us??? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Hugs & Smiles, Pam :)
