MPS Challenge DT 2011

This year I made the goal to have a plan for what I create. So for my first card this year, it is only fitting that it be for my husband. Yes, I know it is pink, but you see he is my biggest fan and supporter and manly or not he will love it. I left two areas blank so I could write a love note later.

My inspiration to make this came from a challenge for the My Pink Stamper Design Team. We were to use the colors green, pink, brown and one other color (white).  I would love to be on the MPS design team, but have so little hope with 350 entries and only two spots.  Thank Robyn for looking and for a chance. 

I used lots of paper:
Papertrey Ink New Leaf
Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst
Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush
Coredinations Strawberries -N-Cream
Cypress Fashion Color Pack for dark green
Tiffany's Design Scrapbook Pad for pink & green pattern paper

Additionlly I used:
Once Upon a Princess for frog and lily pad
Lyrical Letters for hearts and words
Zooballo for hearts
My Pink Stamper love-alicious for both sentiments
CTMH Garden Green Ink
White gel pen
Brown and Pink stickles
Sanding block
Cuttlebug Love Language embossing folder
Adhesive and pop dot

Someone asked what the reason was for giving my husband this card now, instead of Valentine's Day. Where do I start?

For never complaining when I craft.
Always letting me buy just one more cricut thing.
Making dinner or helping around the house without being asked.
Always treating me with kindness, even when I am grumpy.
For making me a card with my cricut for Christmas when I asked him too.
For being my sweetheart and best friend.
For just being him and so much more.
