Blog Badge_The Three Amigos

 

Hello and welcome to the first The Three Amigos post of 2017!

Something fun about this crafting community is that we are very similar to kindergarten children in some aspects. I’ll explain… Who commemorates all the festivities and events of the year? Yes, children… and us. Who is always ahead in time for those celebrations? Hmm… correct! Who else jumps for joy when new goodies arrive? Yes… See what I mean?

So, today I’m celebrating Valentine’s Day ahead in time, with a card for the one who doesn’t thoroughly understand me or this hobby… aka my husband :).

 

love-you-more-than-coffee

 

But I expect to melt his heart with such a profound declaration… who wouldn’t surrender knowing he’s loved above coffee???

For my heart melting purpose, I used a few ingredients: coffee, a nice coffee pot and sentiment from Altenew, a few words enhancing the sentiment, this time from SSS (intended to be for ice cream… pfff), a Tim Holtz stencil, a Spellbinders border die, and a W&W hole maker die, great to stitch some wool.

I’ll let you know whether my plan was successful or not in next episode.

 

I’m also submitting this card to Fusion Challenge for the celebration of their 3rd Anniversary. I don’t play along for quite some time… but this is an important milestone and a challenge I love, so, no excuses.

    Amazing card, Cris! Love the combination of the ink and stencil background, and the stitched wool, looks great! The sentiment is awesome! I’ll bet your husband loves it!

    Awesome! I love every gorgeous detail of your card! Interesting to hear that your partner doesn’t fully get your love of cardmaking, because no-one in my family gets it. I occasionally get a compliment from my daughter, but my Husband and son are totally oblivious:( On the plus side, I’ve never had a complaint about the money I spend on this hobby:)
