Baby it's cold out side-but I know it will get better. Oh and Hubby's Valentine too!

How is that for a title, lol.  I have two card to share with you tonight.  The first one if my hubby Valentine which also fits the Latenightstamper's weekly challenge to create a Valentine and if you are really up to an extreme challenge why not make it manly!  I was up to it.  I never have cards done for my husband early--he is hard to make cards for.  He don't like to hunt, he don't like sports, but tools! Oh yea, he loves those so this is perfect!

I am really happy with the way it turned out.  He will love it.  I had to make the ruler on the side by hand so it is not really neat but it works.  What do you think?

Stamps: Totally Tools, The more the Merrier
Paper: Real Red, Kraft, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, brads

And of course since it is Wednesday night I am posting my Three Clover's Thursday Challenge.  I was being a little silly when I made this.  The theme that Kerry chose for this week is  Baby it's cold outside!  Well no kidding Kerry!  It is winter and I live in Buffalo, lol! So when I went down to my studio to create a card for this tonight all I could think is I really HATE dislike snow.  Sorry we are not allowed to use the H word in this house, lol.  But because I am so sick of the snow I thought I would make a card to remind myself that it won't last FOREVER!  Even though it sure feels like it.

Here is my card.

A pretty simple card but I think it gets the point accross!
Come on Summer!

Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree, The More the Merrier, FYI
Paper: Bordering Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Bordering Blue, Basic Black
Other: markers, glue pen, glitter, word window punch

Hope you had a great day!

MaryJo these cards are wonderful. First I just chuckled when I saw the sentiment on your (Baby it's Cold Outside) card. Super fun!

You hit the Manly Valentine card out of the ball park. It's fabulous.
