Card on TOP

Hello friends...

Stopping by to show you how finally my husband's St Valentine's card looked on top of the delicious cake I gave him.

Remember the card? You can refer to it HERE.

I wanted to give him something different than classic gifts, so I ordered this delicious carrot cake from my friend Isis and placed the card on top. (Isis is also the one who made that delicious cake from another's friend bday... remember? Take a look HERE).

Hope you liked it.

And for more love... here's more of the St.Valentine's work to share. This card has different layers of papers, and I used Unity Stamp Co. stamps, which I love.... :)

The little card aside is a gift card holder I made for my husband too... In the inside it said "Forever" as the continuation of the sentiment in the cover.

Continue loving ... everyday... Thanks for your comments. :)

Celebrating Love today!!!

Happy St. Valentine's Day... It's one of those days that you know you should celebrate everyday, but then since there is a designated day, you join the club and buy gifts, and celebrate, and party, and get excuses to have a special dinner... and so on... you just have to do it and love it!

Hope you find reasons to celebrate friendship today... I also hope love is present every second of your life... and that you don't only feel loved, but also understand how big the potential you have to love and change the life of anybody around you. Love is so powerful... and to love is a decision... Go for it...

Thank you for loving me somehow... yes... if you visit my blog, you are sure sending me some love... thanks.

Here's the card I made for my husband. I managed to schedule the post to automatically appear later during the day so he receives the card before he sees it in the email. LOL! Hope I made it!

The card says "Tinto Love"... in an analogy of red wine with his love... Inside the card I explain it better but basically same way I feel a red wine can be complex, strong but sweet, and full of evolution when you really taste it, and also thinking that you just can't "drink" a wine just because, you have to make sure you are "tasting" it... so, basically some of this resembles our love... Kind of crazy and complicated but you know... I hope he will love this card.

The grapes, glass and cork are pre-made dimensional stickers from Recollections brand. Chipboard letters are from Basic Grey. Cardstock is from AC. Patterned paper is from DCWV. And the hearts were cut with Provo Craft products (cuttlebug die and machine), as well as the embossed circles in the background from same brand embossing folder. The word "love" is a brad from Fun Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by... keep celebrating Love everyday... not just today friend.... everyday.

Getting closer to St Valentine's Day!

Oh yes... I've been out for a while... I was in a business trip for a whole week... It's cool to know different places and change routine at work, but being away from home for more than a couple of days, without the loved ones... it's not that cool. And I've had some busy weeks lately... so here I am.

The day after I got back home my husband wanted to try this wine he's read so many good things about. It's called Enate and it is from the region of Somontano. We tasted a Cab-Merlot blend which was great. You can read this wine's description HERE.

We paired it with prosciutto and salami... mmmmm.

Since this was a small bottle just for the afternoon appetizer and as an excuse to hear all about my trip after a week without each other, my husband had reserved a special wine for dinner. This particularly we had tasted before and he has some bottles in storage. It is Chateau Clarke. It's a red bordeaux blend from France... So tasteful, strong, robust... delicious. It's the kind of wine with so much aging potential. You drink it and you know it's going to be better several years from now. I'm glad my husband still keeps some for the future.

And as a pre-St.Valentine's Day, let me share these cards I just made the other night in an intent to relax my stress out... hehehehe.... As you know, scrapbooking it's a hobby, and as such it's relaxing... so I needed to relax and made these...

Hope you like them... and thank you for your visit and comments. I will be back on St. Valentine's Day... to say hello. Stop by... don't forget to be imperfect.
