Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to you all.

I spent yesterday making a romantic present for my hubby and I am going to share it with you as I want to enter it in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.  This weeks theme is Messy!  Well I think I could have entered anything that I have ever made into this one as I always make a mess and always end up creating in that last postage stamp of space left on my desk.  If I paint or ink I get it everywhere but somehow it all seems to turn out right in the end.  I hope Ivan likes this - I know it is a bit romantic looking but I have been making him little heart love tokens for quite a few years now and I thought I would give him somewhere to hang them up!!  And I made him a new heart to add to his collection.  I am so happy he is my Valentine and has been for 30 years!!!!  Ooooo can I really be old enough ;-)

I decorated a clipboard to match a Valentine tag I made last year (too late for Valentines so I have been keeping it safe!)

 I used some hitch posts that I have been saving as I they were out of production for a while and I am so glad that Tim announced they were back as I find them so useful.  Hanging from one is the cute little love token I was talking about.

I have used the same image transfer technique on my tag and on my clip board.  I love doing this even if it is messy messy messy!

Lots of lovely romantic embellishing going on - I am not sure Ivan will be showing this to the lads!!!

I decided to show you just how messy I am and I have posted a video fast forward of how I made a Valentine for my Valentine.

One confession to make before I post this and link to Simon Says Stamp and Show.......I haven't tidied up yet!!!!  That won't surprise my Valentine at all ;-)

Have a lovely day and thank you for popping by x


  1. So pretty! He will love it! I love all the details you put into it. What a lovely clipboard and that you made it to match the tag you gave him last year will make it extra special!

  2. What a wonderful project! So much fun to watch the video of you making it! Beautiful! Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Hugs, Sandra

  3. Beautiful Valentine's project and such a great idea for using the tag you had already made. Love the little heart hanging from the clipboard. Thank you for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show!!
