Valentine for SIL

It is sometimes a challenge to make Valentines for guys other than my husband.  Oh, I think I need to explain that one ! Haha.   I am talking son in laws.  Cards for sons and grandsons can be more on the mushy side but I don't want to be too gooey for my SIL's.


This set by Unity seemed to fit the bill especially with the scrap piece of DP and the non-traditional colors which show up darker here than they really are. I used Vanilla cardstock.  Brads are  peach brads that have been in my stash for ages.

Sketch is at What if Wednesdays

Other Challenges:
Craft Your Passion - pastels
Great Impressions - have a heart
Simon Says - anything
CASual Fridays - letters creatively
Marks Finest Friends of Speedy TV - valentine

  5. Glad I popped in to read your post- shows how differently valentines day is celebrated. Valentines are mainly between lovers and "would be lovers" here and kids also exchange a few.
    Thanks for playing along at FOSTV.
