Valentine Card Exchange!

Well it's Friday!  Yay the weekend is here!  And the one leading up to the day we celebrate Love!   I was thrilled when I saw one of my doily cards from a while back on the create blog today for the doily challenge!  You can see it here.

I don't know if I have ever blogged about this but as a child I has "bad luck" on Valentines Day.  It started in grade 3 when the boy who I liked (and he liked me I thought!) pushed me over the tunnel outside and I landed on my nose and boy did it hurt and leave a bruise!  Grade 5 when I was bringing my teacher roses in our classroom that was in a temporary classroom my hand was wet and got stuck to the cold metal door!  Grade 7 I was sick on Valentines, Grade 8 my teacher and the whole class played a prank on me about a rough draft essay being due, they said it was the final draft due!  I deserved that one I would often jokingly trick my classmates about schoolwork, I cried, the teacher felt horrible.  Hmmm I think grade 10 the boy I had a crush on found out!  Those were some bad Valentines Day!  But in 1998 on Valentines Day while I was in my first year of university it all changed!  I met Chad!  This year it will be 13 years ago that I met my hubby!  Wow kinda crazy!  We didn't start dating right away even though he liked me, we officially started dating September 1999!  Even with all the bad stuff (well bad at the time not soo bad looking at it now) I still liked Valentines Day as a kid and really love it now!  Ariel too loves Valentines she has been milking us pretty good with the stickers, and pencils, and heart straws and chocolates! LOL

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the Valentine Hero Arts Flickr card exchange I organized!  I sent this to Robin!  I will be honest I love to organize things so I enjoy organizing the two exchanges I have done there!
I wasn't able to get a great pic when the light was really good!  I stamped the stems and grass from Be Happy by HA and added some die cut hearts that I stamped with background stamps as the flowers!  I masked it all and stamped the clouds over it, and distressed with antique linen.  I stamped the side with the cling dots and the sentiment is an old one I have!  I recieved the most beautiful card from Greta in the mail:

Isn't it lovely and soooo romantic?  :>  I love these card exchanges, they are so much fun! :>

I hope that you are having a wonderful Friday, I will be back tomorrow with my Wee Memories post!  I can't wait for you to see what I have made!
