Last Valentine.....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Happy, Happy Valentine's Day to ya! πŸ’
Do you do something special for Valentine's Day?
Or do you see it as just another day?
Me? 
I do something extra special for my kids & hubby...
Like for breakfast we either have Valentine's Day Donuts
or I make a special breakfast - If I don't make a special breakfast
I tend to make a special dinner with dessert. I always give my
boys Valentine's candy & a sweet card - 
This year I have yummy donuts for breakfast & I'm making
Shrimp & Lobster for dinner! Way cheaper than eating out! πŸ˜‚
I also made some yummy blueberry cookies for dessert...

My son that's in the military got a Valentine's card & I baked
him some pan cookies to share with his buddies -
Hopefully he'll get it soon - they (USPS) sent it to Chicago?
It was suppose to go to CA. which is only 2 states away from me -
So the base could send it to him in Japan - So I'm a bit
disappointed in that πŸ˜’ Luckily I used my Food Saver on them
so hopefully they'll still be fresh when he does get them.... 
We did a couple of "TEST" runs on how long his packages 
would take to get too him - & it was 7 days - but since the Post Office
screwed up this package - it'll take longer now... UGH 😬

Anyway--

Since it is the day of LOOOVE... tehehehe I thought
I would share my monthly Card Swap card -
We were told to make either a Wedding/Anniversary/Love card
using Mojo Monday Sketch #287



-- I chose to make a Love card --


Isn't this the sweetest card? Well... I think so anyway! LOL

I used my silhouette program & a digital Paper collection
from SheryK designs called Sweet Owl


-- Other Craft Supplies Used --

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Bazzill
2" Stitched Circle Die - Simon Says Stamp
Stitched Card Mat Die - My Favorite Things
4" Doily Piece - Walton
Clear wink of Stella glitter pen on the word Love & Flower
Nuvo Glitter Drops - Pink Champagne & Silver Moondust
Bitty Sparkle Gems - CTMH


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a FANTASTIC VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

It's so sweet!! That little owl is absolutely adorable!! I love the papers you used!! Perfect take on the sketch!! I hope your son's package gets to him quickly. You'd think the post office would expedite shipments to our troops :/ Can I come over for dinner?? Shrimp - yum!! Lobster - yum!! Blueberry cookies - double yum!! Have a great day, my friend!! Big hugs :)

I hope your son receives his package with no issues. Sounds yummy!! Today is Williams late night at work so we had a Valentine's celebration with a Yummy dinner and candy yesterday.

This sweet card is just cute as can be! Great take on that awesome sketch.
Valentines has been a bit boring around here as hubby and I are still getting over these colds we've had. On the bright side, I feel better today than I have in over a week. I know your guys have enjoyed their special treats. Hope your goodies make it to Japan safe and sound!

I love this sketch and even more so the beautiful card that you created using it. Hopefully your son will receive his package soon. I can certainly understand the frustration as I went through this when my daughter was in Africa for a couple years working on the Ebola thing for the CDC. It would take months to get anything to her.
