Cuthbert Cupid - hubby's valentine's card

Hello again!  I'm back with my 2nd post for today - my Valentine's card for Pav, using an adorable new image from Little Miss Muffet... this is Cuthbert Cupid...

As Pav gets to see most of my cards, it's nice to use something new for his card... and I'm very lucky that he doesn't have a problem with all things cute lol.  I used greys to colour Cuthbert, as I was waiting for my replacement brown copics to arrive, and I think he looks sweet in grey!

Items Used
White linen & plain red cardstock - Papermill Direct
Silver pearl card - Anna Marie Designs
Digi stamp - Cuthbert Cupid - Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Colouring - copics
Papers - Prima Hello Pastel
Heart Banner & You dies - Simon Says Stamp
Paper Smooches Love Word die - Craft Mojo
Glamour Dust in Crystal

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Bunny Zoe's - hearts/ love
Papertake Weekly - with a heart
Cardz 4 Guyz - truly, madly, deeply
Divas by Design - with love
Fab n Funky - love/ valentine
The Male Room - valentine
Copic Marker Europe - valentine

As usual, we said we weren't bothering with presents, and as usual I came downstairs to find all sorts of little goodies left for me... flowers, chocolates, a heart cushion and heart coasters lol... Next year I'm going to ignore him and buy presents so I don't feel guilty!  We'll be ordering a takeaway tonight and then curling up in front of the telly with a bottle of bubbly... boring aren't we?!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I think mine's more boring. No takeaway, I'm on a diet. No champagne, I can't have alcohol with my tablets. So just watching telly tonight. So your night sounds very good to me.Ah well,at least the roof is fixed!

It's gorgeous and I love the grey. Enjoy your evening, sounds just fine to me.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Not boring at all! More like realistic if you ask me. I'll bet there will be a lot less people and craziness curled up in front of your telly than there would be out and about in the world this evening.

The cupid bear is so cute. I like him and your card done up in gray and silver. It is very nice.

And surely, you don't mean whole new Copics but just some refills?!

The image is VERY cute but it's still a perfect male card with the clean layered design and grey/red colour scheme.
Your Valentine's Day plans sound absolutely lovely so I hope you enjoyed it and all your little goodies :-)

We didn't do anything special since we were on holiday and I have to confess to not even giving Dr Hubby his card yet because it's in a drawer in my craft room and I keep on forgetting to go and get it - oops!

Big hugs, Kat xx
