My Funky Valentine

I am sure some of you can relate - it becomes more of a challenge to make "different" cards for family members - especially after doing so for several years!  Most challenging are the now 20 something guys!  It helps that I have them hoodwinked - they think Grandma's cards are just ok!  still, I try to do something age and gender appropriate LOL!  So I decided on a "funky" look this time - yes, all the crooked lines, etc are intentional!  I used more of the hand made paper (red hearts) - I had piece of each pink and red about 2 ft x 3 ft, so it goes a long way!  (I got it along with a couple of boxes of other odds and ends at a store closing.) Just about everything else also came from my stash - the Basic Grey triangles and chip board sticker are more recent.  The Penny Black image is colored with chalk pencils.
