For My Valentine

Hey everyone!  I want to share the Valentine card I made for my husband.  I have to wait until after the big day so it doesn't ruin the surprise.  My card was inspired by this beautiful card by Melissa Cochran at CrazyPaperFreak.  Her style is AWESOME and if you haven't checked it out, you should!  Here's my card:


I also wanted to share the super sweet card he made for me.  He's not afraid to raid my supplies and make me a card because he says it's really hard to buy a cardmaker a great card.  He made a scratch-off card, and it was awesome, all the little red hearts scratched off lottery ticket style to reveal some super sweet messages.  Love it!
