Happy <3 Day

I have never been that big on celebrating Valentine's day, but I've realized it is a nice way to slow down and show the one you love some extra special attention! And any excuse to have a nice dinner out, glass of wine & dessert works for me!

For the card I was inspired by this card I pinned by Debby Hughes
I used the same circle die-cut from Papertrey Ink {here} and added various patterned paper circles.  The candy jar stamps are from Clear & Simple Stamps here and colored with Prismacolor markers.  The sentiment is from Love Songs stamp set by PTI. The ribbon was to cover up an oops! {some schmootz got on the front of card from workspace} I don't like when that happens, but I try to embrace the imperfection {like this post}so I added the ribbon and some rhinestones.  I like everything in 3's, so this card reflects that...3 jars, 3 types of pp, 3 rhinestones.

One thing I made for my sweetheart besides a card this year was this little folio where I wrote a poem.  I once was told to be a true Renaissance man {person}, not only do you have to be immersed in various arts and intellects, but you must have been the subject of someone else's love poem.  In talking with my significant other about the concept of Renaissance man he said no one had ever written a poem about him {at least that he knew?!}  So I decided I would do so and complete his title of a true Renaissance man!
For this project I used a folded 8.5x11 piece of cardstock {Papertrey Ink} and wrote my poem by hand on a piece of graph paper inserted at the fold.  I used my new Amy Tan roller stamp to add "love love love Feb 14 2013" at the bottom of the poem.  
On the left are letter stamps from Technique Tuesday and the graphic was created with Papertrey Ink's Heart Prints & All About You stamp sets. I also punched with a small heart punch {fiskars} and washi tape from Crafty Steals.
For the front cover I clustered various embellies from my stash---->Jolee's hearts, washi tape, rhinestones, American Crafts ribbon, striped die-cut transparencies from BasicGrey, and the cardstock sticker from Creative Imaginations Love Struck line found here.

Hope you all get to share in a lil love this Valentine's day!
