I love you to the moon and back!

Hi! I was chatting with my friend, Susan of It's Me Susan P, this afternoon, and we decided to go make a Masculine Valentine card real quick just for fun and then show each other what we came up with. Be sure to visit her blog and see what she made!

    • Edges inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink
    • Favorite Findings Heart buttons added (Joann's)
