What a LOVELY Weekend!

Hi there, I hope you all had a great weekend and had lots of Valentine's goodies. I thought I would share with you the card I made for my hubby!

Now the funny thing is, that when I was reading Jules' Blog earlier this week, she said she was taking part in the Cute Card Thursday challenge which this week's theme was Music and Dance, using song titles on your card. Personally I don't get time to take part in challenges but I thought that this was a really lovely idea so I set about making a card for my hubby with the words "Truly, Madly, Deeply" on it, as it was the song we had our first dance to at our wedding. Now as usual, the card didnt go to plan and the writing smudged all over the pearlescent card after I'd printed it so I decided not to use it in the end. Then on Saturday morning when I opened the card from hubby, it had the very same words down the right hand side of the card. Spooky! Maybe I should start to give him a bit more credit than I do! He obviously thought about it this year!

I didnt get any flowers this year, but I bought hubby a nice heart shaped box of Ferrero Rocher which I ate half of! We were going to go out for a romantic meal, with the 2 and half year old! but I decided it would be nicer if we stayed in and had a candle lit dinner instead. I invited my parents round and we had a lovely romantic meal for 5! I cooked a lovely roast, one of my best yet! and I tried to make the table look pretty. It was lovely, and we didnt have to spend a lot of money! Hubby took this artiscit shot of the dining table!

On Friday afternoon, hubby rang from work asking me to make a card for a colleauge's wife! Talk about leaving it til the last minute! Men! So I just copied a card I'd made for my brothers girlfriend, changing the colours. I've not made a huge amount of valentines cards this year for fear I'd still have them sitting in my box until the same time next year.

I decied to make a matching set for my Mum and Step-Dad and here's their version of my Valentine's card!
