CBCC #24 - Valentine for Mr. Right!

This week Courtney's challenge is to create a masculine Valentine....seeing how I still had to make my hubby's Valentine card I thought this was the perfect challenge to complete that task!

I have to thank my dear friend, Lena, for the Hanglar image. She sent me the most adorable handmade keepsake box FULL of Hanglar images! Lena you are such a sweetheart and I treasure my gift from you! Thank you so much! Lena has pictures of my keepsake box on her blog, please stop by her site and see her amazing work, it's stunning!!!! She also has some fabulous blog candy going on right now too!

I colored this little Hanglar with my Copics! I just got another set of them from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap and I so love them!!! Cardstock is SU, DP, ribbons, and foam hearts are from my stash. I used my Martha leaf punch, Fiskars heart border punch, and my new heart nesties.
The finished inside: I used one of my $1 stamps from Michaels, stamped it with real red SU ink, and then used my angel wing Shimmerz over the top of it for some shine! Also used my heart corner punch.
And I am sharing my finished back with you all today! I got a brand new "handmade" stamp that I am loving!!! I stamped it with versamark dazzle in champagne and momento cocoa ink. The shimmer it has to it is awesome (too bad the picture doesn't show it)! You can click on the picture to make it bigger to read my saying!

I really like how my non-traditional Valentine turned out! I wasn't quite sure how the colors would look, but I was pleasantly pleased! I think my hubby will even like this one! Hee hee!

Don't forget to head on over to Courtney's blog and link your masculine Valentine and please check out my fellow chickies creations. You can find their links in my side bar. This week is our dear friend Sarah's last challenge as a chick, we are going to miss you Sarah, but wish you all the best!
OK, I have to get back to studying and researching, glad I got a small break to craft! :)
Happy Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!
