CSDivas Be My Valentine Blog Hop…. Day 2

The full details of the blog hop are down 2 posts on February 7…. But the order of the hop is listed in this post.

I am just sharing some  more projects with you that are Valentine related.  These are not part of my challenge, but feel free to “scraplift” and adapt and post them at CS Divas anyway – I don’t mind Smile

So here is a card that I made for my nephew Jared, who will be 26 this year.  We are so proud of him, the eldest of the Lenth grandchildren.  He is in the Navy and finished 2nd in his class at his schooling down in Florida.  The base where he is right now is where the Navy Blue Angels take off from.  So even though Jared is not a pilot, I thought I would make him this card because this is the idea that popped in my head!




I cut the jets flying in formation from my Stand and Salute cartridge. I cut the banner and the clouds from the same cartridge.  I inked the edges of all the cuts and used stickles on the clouds. 

The banner is my hand writing and I hate it. I should have used the computer.  Oh well…..

The inside of the card shows my handwriting again  and the Valentine’s Day is cut out from Designer Calendar.  All die cuts are from my Imagine, however the inside phrase was the only one cut AND printed with Imagine ink.  The others were cardstock. The heart buttons are from my stash.  The ones on the front are filled in with Stickles.

So I guess I better get this in the mail for him.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to scroll down to the third post on this page for the challenge on the blog hop! Oh and leaving a message and becoming a follower would be awesome!  Remember, I am trying for 150 followers by end of February.  There is a big prize involved!  Thanks Smile

Fun card Ann, I love the way you made it work with your nephew's Navy career. The Valentine Day die cut is really fancy! I think your handwriting looks great, but I'm with you in that I never like it when I use my own.
