Get'n Crafty (Mr. Sweet did too!)

 Happy Wednesday! We've got a couple cute cards to show off today (in preparation for Valentines day!) I grabbed the 'Chemistry' set 

I love this set - not only because it's just fun to use - but, mostly because I can use if for SO many different themes. Love. Thank You. Congrats. Hello. Etc. 

With Valentines day right around the corner - I grabbed this set for a little 'love' card! 

I titled it 'Chem 101' and I used - Glitter | Watercolors | Alpha Stickers 

Isn't that so sweet?! 

It's not conventional ... but, it's pretty perfect for my Chemical Engineer brother! (no promises I'm actually sending it to him - you know, I have a horrible problem of keeping everything I make - lol) 

Mr. Sweet (Jacob) came home last night from work. (he's a tax accountant and yep, it's a horrible time of year for him) He came into my office and declared that he was making a card. --- So, he got out the stamp set he wanted to use and ink ... went straight for the Copic markers (he's got good taste) and did the WHOLE thing himself. Not one bit of help from me. And, when it was done - I was so impressed! 

Yep, he colored it - cut it out - popped it up ... ALL BY HIMSELF! Clearly, he's been hiding his talent this whole time. He told me this morning that he's making another card tonight. (we'll see - lol) 

He also took a picture of the card last night - the above photo on the right. (the photo on the left is the one I took in the light box today) and he even fixed up the photo with my editing program!

So good, right?! Anyway, he did mention that he had a new appreciation for what we do and the steps we take to post it online. Sigh, him mentioning that made it all worth while!

He used the 'Perfect' Match' set

He's a keeper! Anyway, thanks for droppin' in today - hope your Wednesday is FLYING by and we'll see you back here tomorrow for another little something (and maybe even another card by Mr. Sweet)

Happy Stamping!
