First Card for 2021

 My dear sweet hubby went fishing so I figured it was a good time to make a Valentine for him and then stash it away in a safe place. Hopefully, I can recall where the safe place is when Valentine's Day comes. So often I forget which really bums me out. But usually it is where I thought it was but for some reason when looking for it the card will have gotten shifted or covered up by another. Well, I will take a chance that I will remember this time for sure. My hubby truly is a blessing to me and I hope he likes this card. I might even spring for the box of chocolates to go with it.

I used digital images from two of Jan's Digital sets....Valentine Wishes and Puttin/ on the Ritz. Together they worked quite well with the heart background and the box of candy. I used the already colored images for it. I was in a hurry to get it done just in case he ends up coming home sooner then I think. Hahaa! If that happens no doubt he caught some fish! These two stamp sets can be combined when you use the hearts from the Puttin' on the Ritz set for a background. While I was at it I printed out lots of backgrounds so that I can use them for my shut ins as well with a different design.

I am entering this in Jan's Digi Stamps January 2021 Challenge-Anything Goes.

Well this morning I had my wound care appointment and over the past few days I made quite a bit of progress. I hope and pray that continues every wound bandage change. So I was happy about that. I hope all of you are enjoying the new year and staying healthy too.

God bless, Verna

I'm so happy to hear the good news from you about your progress in healing. Sounds like you are right on target. That is a pretty Valentine for hubby. He is a good "catch". Sorry, I couldn't help that after hearing he went fishing. I can't reorganize anymore because I forget where I put things if I move them so you are not alone.

This is such a pretty valentine for your dear husband, and I know he'll love it! Hopefully he brought back some fish for your dinner too! I find such great hiding places I manage to hide things from myself too, so you're not alone! LOL Wishing you continued good news from the doctors and good health in the coming days ahead!

I'm so pleased to hear that you are slowly improving, Verna and hope that by the time spring comes, you will be running around like a spring chicken! I'm sure Arlin is going to love this card for Valentine and if he is anything like my husband he will be very pleased to get the choccies. Hope the fish were biting!
Happy New Year to you both

Wonderful news that you are healing well Verna - it's always a concern as we get older (not that I want to admit the older bit!!)
Love your card - I am sure your hubby will appreciate it.
Stay safe

I love the way you have combined these two sets to create such a stunning card. I do hope you remeber where you've hidden it when the time comes - I'm always forgetting where I put things.
