My Funny Valentine

Happy Saturday to you!!!

I have a super fun card to share with you today!
I have been so busy working on lots of gorgeous/shabby chic Valentines
lately, that I thought it was time for a break for something entirely different!!



As soon as I saw this fun, fun challenge "Monster Mash" at Tuesday Throwdown
I couldn't wait to find time to play!!

Now this is what you call really digging in the old stash,
as this one eyed monster was bought on a pack of 97 cent stickers from
Walmart around Halloween time to make cards for the kiddos!

Well, obviously that didn't happen, 
but what better little guy for the challenge..right??

I had soooooooooo much fun putting this together...and it came together
in about 5 minutes, tops...
Oh yes, I love that!!
I have/had a card in mind for the hubby for Valentines Day,
a shaker card no less, but I just might have to cave in and give this one to him.
I know he would get a kick out of it, and as we have grown older, I noticed
the cards have changed for us from somewhat "mushy" to well, "FUNNY"
and always signed not only by him, but our "tribe" of pets...LOL!!!

A few of the things I used to create this (other then the monster of course)
is a new cloud die...I love this thing..look at the size of it...woowho!
It is new from Memory Box and called Cloud Bank...
you can purchase it HERE if interested...and using the code DIANE-10
can get 10% off your order (thought I might as well throw that in..lol)

I also used an adorable kite die from Impression Obsession....
available HERE and the same code above applies.

After Christmas I treated myself to quite a few new things
 and one of them was this wonderful "stitched" die by Lawn Fawn!!
Which I used for my "grass"!!

The sentiment is an oldie, but goodie
that has been around "for-eva"!!

Okay, hope you like it...would love to hear your thoughts!!

Entering in the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown .... Monster Mash
Lawnscaping Challenge ... Clean and Simple

How fun is this!! I only wish I could borrow you to do the Thursday Club ... They'd love this! I'm doing Valentines day and have so far cut and prepared 2 cards which means 40 of everything ... so time consuming hence why I've been a little quiet!

Hahahahaha! He is funny! Love that cloud die and the polka dot grass. I have a bunch of Halloween stickers, too. So funny that you used it for a Valentine. Sounds like me and Rich. More funny than mushy these days.
