Box Card for Valentines Day

Wow! As I look at the date of my last publication I am astonished and a little bit ashamed that it's been so long. That is not to say I haven't been having fun in my studio (I have started to call it that now that I feel I have so many talents, and prefer to be known as an artist), I have been doing many things, just haven't taken the time to post them on this poorly maintained blog. With that said, I made this card box for my husband of 24 years for Valentines Day, and thought I would share it. All paper and images are from Stampin' Up and I think retired decorative paper if I am not mistaken. I made mine larger than the ones I have been seeing on the internet, and had to make a special envelope just for it to fit. But It makes a statement. The flowers were cut out using a cuttlebug shape, oh and some of the sentiments are from Verve Stamps (I won quite a few years ago, Thank You I still "love" them), and Stampendous.
So in the mean time I plan on trying to post more often, I am in the process of changing my current position in nursing, and plan on having more time at home and in my studio. I am truly exciting for the path I am currently on, and hope to be able to bring you more of my Kreations. I also want to give a shout out to Operation Write Home, and hope that you will visit their website and get involved, even if you don't make cards to send, maybe you know of a place or military person that would enjoy the cards or even donate to this worthy cause. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
