Butterfly Hugs!

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

While I appreciate the thought behind Valentines Day, I do not celebrate what I consider to be a "Hallmark Holiday". I don't buy a card for my husband and I certainly do not expect a card from him.

Now, that being said, because there are so many people out there who love and celebrate Valentines day, I do make them for the parents, aunts and a few friends and this card is one of them.


Supplies
Cards stock from The Paper Studio
DP from my stash
Sentiment from Inkahootz!
Ink from Stampin Up!

Hi Cara. You sounds so much like my hubby. He refuses to celebrate anything that consider a "Hallmark Holiday" as well. So we don't celebrate Valentine and nether do any of our family. So it is one holiday I don't make a card for.

Another beautiful design and so sweet Cara. I just love a clean and simple white card with a single focal image. It really make a bold statement and bring out the beauty of this butterfly. This card also serve multiple occasions - birthday, just because and even as a get well card.

Hope your weekend is going better than mine Cara and thanks for another beautiful inspiration. Sending Hugs - Christina

My husband feels the same way about Hallmark holidays, so we don't celebrate either. That's ok, I have fun making the kids a Valentine card!!

Very pretty card! I confess I'm glad hubby and I exchange cards and candy every year. I get a huge bag of peanut M&Ms. He gets Millionaires or Turtles. We'll be 29 years married in May. Kinda tradition by now, lol. xoxo
