Oh Snap! Your Love Is Definitely Where It's At!

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday to you! Today I have a little card to share with you that I made for my hubby. I just made this card for no reason. It's not an anniversary or anything, I just wanted to remind him how much I love him. Things have been going really great for us here lately. We are just so happy and I wanted to celebrate that. Kinda corny I know, but I think he'll like it!

"Oh Snap" Card

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket, K & Company
Pearls: Queen & Co
Thread: Coats & Clark
Circle Cutter: Creative Memories
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Cartridges Used: Gypsy Wanderings, New Arrival, Smiley Cards, Lyrical Letters
Software: Cricut Gypsy (Provo Craft)
Font: Allison's Hand
Adhesive: Helmar
Other: sewing machine, printer

I used my Gypsy to design this shaped card. It was fairly easy to pull together. It took me about an hour to finish this one. I plan on giving it to him when he gets home from work today.
 I love this little sweet pea! It's from the 'New Arrival' cartridge. This is an older Cricut cartridge, but I have been trying to challenge myself to use some of the cartridges I haven't used in a while.
 I used Zap Dots to pop up my banner a bit and the fabulous twine is from My Craft Spot.
 I used my Microsoft Word program to type up a a little sentiment for the back. I used a font I found online called Allison's hand. I printed out the sentiment on some cardstock and then cut it with my Creative Memories circle cutter.
I hope all of you have a phenomenal day! Take care and see you tomorrow!

Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!

Great card, Aymee! I love the sentiment. Sometimes the best cards/gifts are the unexpected "just because". : ) I am so happy that things are going well for you. You are such a wonderful person and you deserve much happiness. : )

What a beautiful and adorable card!!! And how nice of you to do that for hubby -- he must deserve it!!! LOL!!! Although "just because" to me are always the most appreciated if for no reason at all!!! I think it has to be with L-O-V-E; yep, that'll do it! LOL!
