created by courtney

Happy Tuesday everyone! Monday's are usually a very busy day for me so I decided to slow down a little bit yesterday and I got a ton of stamping done. Some I can show you...some I cannot. So...how about I show you my Created by Courtney Challenge card for today?

Today's challenge is to make a masculine valentine. I wasn't sure it if was supposed to be really guyish or just something that I would give to my husband so I went with the later. Once again I must say that I do like my card. I used on of Jen's Sketch For You To Try (from all the way back in November) and paired it with two of Verve Stamps new sets...Sweet Valentine and Hundred Hearts. And I couldn't not have some shimmer of some sort so I used Angel Wings Shimmerz in the center of each heart. To me black, red, and white is just the ultimate guy color combo for Valentine's Day. I also really like the off set layout of this sketch. Kinda keeps you guessing so to speak. The sentiment on the Riding Hood Red patterned paper is something that I often think about. I wondered when I had my second son how I would have enough love to go around...then number three came along and then Todd. I'm telling you...my love grows every single day for each of the wonderful men in my life!

Enough mush. I hope you will take some time to make a masculine card! Do you need some inspiration? Check out all of the CBCC Chicks...you'll find links in my sidebar.

I will see you tomorrow for the Belli Challenge for which I could have used today's card. What do you think it could be? Have a SUPER day!

Great card. You are right, red, black, and white are great colors for a masculine valentine's card. I still have yet to make my husbands card AND things for my boys, ugh!!! Where does the time go?
I love the sentiment you chose. I have always liked it and believe it 100%. Yes, you always seem to have more love to share when you think there is no more to give. I have 3 men of my own, well a hubby, and 2 boys that I love with every ounce of my being.

This is soo NEAT! I would totally give this to my hubby ;) You did a great job on it. Besides, why create a "guy" card if it's not for your hubby or son? I think it's perfect! xx
