I Only Have Eyes For You!

That's what the crazy looking potato in a tutu said! I couldn't help myself, I just had to use this retired set called Stew Pot Pals for my hubby's valentine. He's the manager of the produce department at a large grocery store and is always making us groan with bad puns, so this was perfect for him! Plus, I really do only have eyes for him and probably look about as good in a tutu as that potato!

He commented on how cool he thought the tri-shutter cards I've made recently, so I had to make another. I used the Sending Love papers and the I {Love} Love jumbo wheel for the background.  I was wishing I had some heart brads or some other heart embellishments when I got a good idea...I punched out some hearts from Real Red card stock, covered them in Crystal Effects, let them dry and then adhered them to my card front. They look like epoxy hearts or heart brads, don't you think?

I recently got a new toy for my Big Shot to play with...the Mini Milk Carton Bigz die. They are so cute! I made a few to decorate to give away for Valentines Day. I created the window in the front by using my 1-1/4" circle punch and adhering a small square cut from a window sheet inside.

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
