Chronicles of the everyday life of a crafty techno-nerd!

Quick and dirty!
I got glitter EVERYWHERE while making this card. Yes, I'm aware, there's no glitter on the card. This afternoon I only had an hour and a half to make the cards I needed to have done for Valentine's Day. I used the Get Sketchy sketch for this week and (as usual) tweaked it just a bit. I used my new curvy cutter cutting system to cut out all of the pieces on this card. I like the system and it was definitely the way to go for me. I can now cut some basic shapes in very large sizes and small sizes. Both of which I need. Way cheaper than buying a bunch of nesties (which don't go as big as I need) but just as effective!
As usual, I tweaked the sketch just a little bit. I wanted more of the whole hearts to show on that background paper. Now that the hubby is away from his RSS feed for the weekend, I can post his new V-Day cards! :D (Yes, cards. I'm a technical writer, what did you expect?)
Please note that I have again made a "glitter/flower/massively-pink/ribbon"-free card for Mr. Man! Yay! By reducing bumpy embellies on the outside, I also maximized the amount of room I have to write in on the inside!
