Sunday Sketches – Love Birds

Sunday Sketches Header - transparent background larger version pngIt’s Valentine’s day so it’s only right that my post for this week’s Sunday Sketches should be love related.

Jim and I always make each other our cards – be it Valentine’s Day, Birthdays or Christmas. We both prefer it that way, which is one of the reasons why he is so perfect for me. ┬áSo my entry this week is my card to Jim. My best friend, my inspiration, my soul mate….the only man who has ever really got me. I truly count my blessings that I have found him.

The card kind of depicts us – as he is tall and I am short, so I thought maybe a snail could help these Love Birds be on the same level. I had a lot of fun coming up with the idea.


I hope you have a lovely day however you spend it. As I get older I am less consumed with the commercialism of these events, and just prefer being with those I love, whether it’s friends or family.

Have a beautiful day and please do grab a cuppa and visit the other entries over at Blue Chair Diary’s blog, which is what I am going to do.

    Awww, such a gorgeous card, and precious gift.
    I am totally with you on the commercialism of these holidays – sigh – a sing of our time, I guess.
    Visiting from BlueChair Diary – happy Sunday :)

      Thanks Claudia ….and yes you’re right it’s probably a sign of our time :) Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Very cute and clever card. I agree that holidays probably become more personal and less commercial as we get older. I guess that means we’re growing . A good thing.

      Thank you – couldn’t have a cuppa on Valentine’s day without it being in my heart mug :)
