It would be a Valentine, but we're calling it a love card...

Now how's that for a post title?  Confused??  Well, if you visit my blog at all, you know that I am a long time card carrying member of the Procrastinator's Club (well, I would have a card if they ever got around to making them...) and on occasion, my procrastinating leads to complete and total forgetfulness.  Today's card was created for a club in February and it WAS a Valentine card, but since it is now mid March, I don't want to look too absentminded, so I'm renaming it a Love card, perfect for an anniversary or just a 'honey, I love you' note.  Clear as mud, right?!  My intentions were to post this for Valentines day, but in my procrastinating to create the post, I completely forgot to make it.  And while I know that some people create Christmas cards all year long to prepare for the holiday, I don't know anyone who makes Valentines all year.    If you do, please don't tell me! I already feel like a slacker for not making enough cards for the times that I do need to send them!!  But enough of my endless rambling about forgetfulness...

Here is the once a Valentine, now a Love card...

I totally pulled inspiration from a dear blogging friend, Carole.  I loved the way she used the heart framelit for her card and had to make my own version!  She of course, was not a procrastinator, and had her card on her blog well in advance of Valentine's Day... I should despise that about her, but she is so super sweet and so much fun that I am willing to overlook her perfections!! Did I mention she has a wonderful sense of humor too?!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card and don't think too poorly about me and my less than perfect posting habits! Have a wonderful rest of the week and happy crafting!

  1. BOTH versions are so much fun and VERY versatile!! Had you not admitted to your trait of procrastination, I never would have known it wasn't just a "Awww, she's so awesome..she makes love cards just because!" ;)
    Please don't ever stop being you..we need more people in the Procrastination club!!!

  2. OMGosh Margaret, I just literally burst out laughing, lol!! How I enjoyed your post :) I am reading along and think -yep, that's just like something I would do or say :) And well ... i LOVE your card! No matter what season or holiday upon us, hee hee .... this is just adorable. So many elements and fabby design! x0x0

  3. I don't know anyone that creates Valentine cards all year either - maybe you can be the very first! But, I do love your "love" card! Great way to use the embossing!

  4. This is so darling! Love that embossed chevron background.

  5. Hi Margaret, what a gorgeous card, and as an anti-Valentine's curmudgeon, I'm far happier with the idea of a Love card to be delivered any old day of the year!! Love the design and yummy patterned papers...

  6. Giggle ! I really like the way you used the hearts and the strips of paper on your love card. I can see that technique used with other shapes (flowers, butterflies...) Neat idea, thanks for sharing =)


I would love to know what you think! Thanks for commenting!
