busy day

i had a busy crafting day to day, not for long but i seemed to get a lot done.
i'm sure everyone knows it is valentines day on sunday. . .  it's not. . .  it is my daughter lucy's birthday. 
 she used to get very upset when she was little about everyone talking about valentines day and not her birthday!!
i dont usually include anything valentine-y on her card,  but this year i couldn't resist the forever friends stamps available, soooo cute.
 i saw joannes pencil coloured card and had to do something similar, it was so clean and simple.

i also made a card for my hubby, but made it a bit more lovey dovey.
i stamped around the edge with various stamps i already had the  paper with love printed on it, i layered the bear on the top. the bear is coloured in with aqua promarkers. i used glossy accents on the word love and the little hearts, just to give it a different texture.

we are having a big family dinner on sunday. . . . . . not for valetines day obviously, it's lucy's birthday!!!!  her present? we are going on agirls trip to paris. . . very romantic!!!!!
