Love at Saturated Canary

Happy Valentines everyone!
We have never much been into the valentines thing here (me and hubby that is) but the kids love it and it is fast becoming a tradition that I make little valentines for them lol! I have also been making cupcakes etc but I have made them pre valentines.... maybe I will go and finish some more off this evening!
I have made some lovely gifts for the kiddies but you will have to wait until tomorrows post for that so do come back!
However I got up this morning to find a red rose at the bottom of the bed (aww) Hubby is on nights so I left him sleeping as he came in at 6am this morning and as I made way down the stairs so I followed a trail of roses! There was one in a plant, one at the PC desk, one at my crafting desk, in the bathroom etc etc. There was a little heart post it on my lappy saying I love you and even some gingerbread LOVE cookies by the TV with a heart post it saying for the kids! When Amelia went to school (she leaves first) and we opened the door another rose fell on to the floor! But this made 11 roses and I figured he bought the dozen but just couldn't find the other rose for the life of me! I searched everywhere but no rose and decided I would probably just have to ask him when he got up but on taking the other kiddies to school, I put on my coat and out popped number 12 rose from the sleeve of my jacket! Hubby has def out done himself this year!
So, following on our love theme for today that's what our challenge is over at Saturated Canary and I have the card I made for my hubby to show.
I have used lovely papers Basic Grey True love collection, Some flowers from Wild Orchids, a butterfly from little snippets, bling from Prima and a sentiment ticket from Wild Asparagus.
I have used this stunning digi image from Saturated Canary called love letters and I have coloured her with prisma pencils. I have edged in victorian velvet DI and used an SU flower stamp around the corners.
Do check out what the rest of the amazing team have made for this challenge, such pretty cards to look at!

Ooooh Rebekah that is one lovely story!! What a romantic hubby you have, wanna swap??? Tho to be fair to mine he did buy me and Emily flowers today!!! You should've seen her lil' face light up when she realised she'd got flowers as well as mummy - I've got a pic and was going to post it tomorrow.

She also got a Valentines card and chocs from her best friend. She gave him a heart shape fairy cake (but I don't think she's got the whole Valentines thing yet - she also made one for her other best girlfriend!).

Thanks for the really nice supportive comment about Caleb's sleep habits - glad it's not just me that has a bad sleeper.

Also sorry I've not been by much just lately, I'm in a bit of funk and don't want to pass it on to everyone, so I'm laying low!!! Normal service will be resumed once the clocks go forward.
