You make me smile

Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite Valentine of hubby Frank.  It's our 41st Valentine together........imagine that. Doesn't seem possible.  This is a super simple card as my hubby doesn't like a lot of 'stuff' on his I had to really restrain myself. lol

I recently told you about the Anna Griffin chalkboard stamp set that I ordered from HSN.  I was really happy that they came just in time to make this card.  I think they stamped up very well.  I used the black ink pad that came with the set.  The red ink is a Tsukineko Versa Magic dew drop called "Red Magic".  The background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder called "Chicken Wire".  I thought it added a bit of a manly touch.
