True Love Valentine

Good Afternoon My Dear Friends!  How are you on this lovely Friday?  I really hope everything is good on your end.
 
PHEW!  After weeks of working on my daughter's wedding invitations, they have finally been posted and I can breathe a sigh of relief for the moment.  I swear, there is some sort of DNA within me that compels me to take on monumental tasks like this because I always do and then I end up shedding tears of frustration along the way.  Every year after I've made all of my Christmas cards, I tell my husband to not let me do it again...and every year I make them.  I can't help myself!  So while making the invitations, as a bit of "therapy", I would take little breaks and work on something of my own and so I made this Valentine.



This is Tilda With Dot Bow, floating on a cloud and daydreaming about her wonderful husband who has been her rock and her best friend for 24 years.
 


I've colored her up with my Copics and pretty much everything has been inked at the edges with Distress Inks.  
I made the little sign holder with pins and pearls from my bucket o' jewelry findings.  I just brought that bucket in from the garage the other day and forgot how much stuff I accumulated when I taught jewelry classes at the craft store.  So much of it has never been opened.  I'm thinking that I might have a blog candy soon and give some of it to someone who could make use of it, as I rarely wear jewelry myself.  What do you think?
 
Anyway, the detailed list of what I used on my card is at the bottom of this post.  Thank you so much for visiting!  Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

♥ Laura C.
