SHH Now by Crafts and Me

This weekend we moved my daughter into a fresh new apartment, slept a lot and then watched the Super Bowl until I had a card idea.  My daughter's boyfriend always says "shh, I have a secret" my daughter says "what" he says "I love you!"  I love that about him.  So I looked at my stamp Shh Now from Crafts and Me and it fit my daughter and boyfriend perfectly for a Valentine Card.  

You can barely see the paper from Authentique "smitten" in the background with all the doily and flowers I have. Never too much bling.

A close up of my florals, pin, Heidi Swap heart and Sheri Baldys heart die.

The pearls are from Prima. Magnolia doohickey heart and banner die. I wrote the "Shh, I have a secret" on the banner, wished my handwriting was better.

Inside of the card with Authentique papers and Magnolia doohickey tag.

Shh Now is colored in Copics and fussy cut. I used a flat gray paper to fill in.

My camera had a hard time with the bold red and black, kept washing out the color. 

As for this week we are packing our son, wife and their 2 dogs, they leave on Wednesday, then I will be sad!  They are going to Florida where it is warm and sunny. Only 3 kids at home now!
