what an adorable perfect card for your hubby!! Love the black trim and lacy look behind the heart and how you did the ribbon!
I have so many favorites - depends on the day, moment, or project. Ribbons, flowers, brads, and snaps seem to be my first choices. Then I've recently found rub ons - I was skeptical at first, who knew how much fun these would be?!?

Wow, I love the deep deep red. My favorite embellishments are ribbons and buttons. I use mostly ribbons because of the thickness of buttons.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful card.

love the ribbon and the colors on your card. My fave embellishment at the moment, since it swings different ways at different times, is LACE.. I;m loving all the lace you got from your visit to turkey, and I'm loving the lace I snagged at my church's rummage sale.
Happy V-Day, Holley! Glad you're here to share it with us!

Great Valentine, Holley! Great way to fancy up the sentiment!
I love gems. I use them too much possibly! On the other hand, I always feel like I've gone the extra mile if I use grommets on a card, so I think it's a toss up between the 2.

SURPRISE!! if YOU did the following things happen, you get a bonus: if you answered the QUESTION of the day in your response, 2) if you win any prize during the month, 3) if your answer is BEFORE I post this Suprise message....you will get a bonus sent to you when I mail your prize! So for all your prize winners, you will get an extra goodie. We are just half a month a long, so odds are good that you will win before the end of the month. Good luck.
