Follow Your Heart

Have you ever tried to make a Masculine Valentine?
I've recently had some commission requests to create "Manly Valentines", however, I think I might be Man Valentine CHALLENGED ;o(
So just as I sat starring at my table and supplies, here I sit starring at the scrren wondering what to say about this card....... In my opinion it is ALESAGGIO (Italian for boring). Where is the Glitter? Where is the RIBBON?

One of the other requests that I received was quite specific: "Manly Valentine for a guy that served in the Army and loves Music"......... Needless to say, that card is still a blank piece of cardstock....
Speaking of MEN, I am outta here. Gonna spend the day out in the sun getting to know my MAN again. (guess you'll have to read the previous post if you are confused)

Awesome guy card, Justine! Love that gray DP you used - just the right amount of vintage pattern, but not to frilly for a guy. Hope you have a great weekend with your DH!!

Hi honey,

Thank you for your lovely compliment... very much appreciated & I must admit that I keep saying I'm going to send cards off to magazines but to date I've never actually gotten around to it... lol... maybe one day eh!

Anyhow, I love this card & it's so perfect for a man... Nice clean layout, masculine colours & the red heart hits you in the face which is the perfect way to tell someone how much they are loved... Well done you..

Big hugs
