Meant to be in Love

I was finally able to make the Valentine I'll be giving my husband on February 14!
I pieced together several sentiments from Unity's Bits & Baubles stamp set so that my card reads "meant to be in Love." Perfect for my best friend and life partner!
I combined a boatload of challenges in the making of this card. Here goes:
It was so nice to be able to play with paper again this morning after dealing with snow for two days! Thanks for taking a moment to share my little slice of bliss. :)

Love this one, Emily! The colors are yummy and the paper is awesome. The ribbon is a perfect match. How did that happen? I could have ten million rolls of ribbon and never have the color I need. Yikes!!

Hooray! Stamp time! I've been thinking about you and all that shoveling you've been doing (that new part for snowblower comes today, right?) - shoulder high. Wow. So glad you were able to make a card. Ahh. Almost as relaxing as a soak in the tub! Mark is sure to love this, and I think it's neat how you pulled together a sentiment from various pieces.
