Happy to be stuck with you - Cricut Valentine for my favorite guy

👉 There is a certain happiness in being silly and ridiculous.

Hey there,

Yep, I can even come up with an embarrassingly cutesy Valentine for my hubby.  It takes a special talent, and a certain level of immaturity that I hope we all possess when we advance in age. But, honestly, can anyone keep from singing the happy Huey Lewis song when you see this card?  And I am, indeed, blessed to be stuck with a wonderful guy.   I used a rectangle Lori Whilock svg card base to accommodate my extremely  handsome and talented cactus guy. 

Originally, I had a brightly colored, multi-layered lizard in the center panel.  I was so proud of my handiwork until I added some black Nuvo drops to his eyes and then accidentally closed the card!!!!  I'm sure that never happens to you.  While cutting the complete card over again. because, of course, I had already glued everything in place, I  found this Southwestern heart in Design Studio.  I like it even better than my original lizard. Kismet.

Here's what I used:
  1. This Lori Whilock svg file.
  2. Cricut Southwestern cartridge images in Design Studio.
  3. Nuvo drops to embellish hat and marakas
  4. Cricut writing feature for front sentiment.
  5. HA stamp for inside sentiment.
  6. Sun die.
Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
