Grungy Monday 36 Happy Valentines Day

Hi world
An extra post from me this week.
 I have yet another cold and have been feeling pretty rubbish all day at work.
didn't feel like doing anything this evening. But if I go to bed now I wont sleep so here I am

Blogland seems all loved up this week so here is my Valentine card for my handyman, (that's the blog name for my husband of 33 years not just any random builder who happens to be passing !!)
I think it just about fits in at Grungy Monday this week. The background is done with DI and the mask is one of Tim's so I guess it qualifies.

Sorry its such a rubbish picture, but hey ho!
The heart has been put through an embossing folder and the raised areas have Inka gold on them, that has a lovely sheen but it doesn't show in the picture.
I wonder if he will get me a card. . .  last year he 're- made' the card I gave him last year  LOL
I am into recycling!!

There are lots of challenges with hearts this week here are a few I have seen
