Lindsay's Stamp Stuff - Love Notes

Valentine's Day is coming! I was "feeling the love" this weekend and created my first Valentines card of the year.



Although it is not a typical Valentines card, I really love the way it turned out. The sentiment was computer generated using the Veteran Typewritter font (a freebie). I like creating my own sentiments because you can type in any sentiment you want.

Stop by to visit the rest of the DT's blog. I know they have some wonderful projects for you to look at. Lindsay will have her weekly freebie on her blog.

Awesome card and great to give to a guy (ie not a lot of pink and flowers ;) ) Love this idea!

Kathy Braun and Lucky said...

I think it is the perfect Valentine's Day card, love the typewriter and the sentiment you added just fits. The paper and lace is a lovely touch.

I like how you kept the layout simple so you could add the lace and ribbon and twine and heart and button and not have any of it be overwhelming. A really charming Vday card.

do you know i took my 1st typing test on a typewriter just like this? at 62 wpm too! i was the star pupil - go figure. i STILL love typing which is probably why i'm on the computer all day long - lol.

Cheryl, I like cards when they aren't as typical as they should be ie Valentine's red/roses. I think that image is perfect. Thankfully I didn't have to type on one of these - think I'll stick to my computer keyboard!!! Thank you for taking part in the Aud Sentiments Challenge this fortnight and I wish you the best of luck in the draw. Best wishes, Kym (Aud Sentiments Design Team Member) xxx
