Happy Sunday!

I'm so excited that I finally had a chance to craft a card for this month Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.....

Nicole has challenged us to.....to create a card that is as beautiful inside as it is out. Our project should incorporate some sort of hearts in the cover design to hint at what's inside.  The interior should be filled with your own heartfelt words to one of the first people you thought of when you began reading this paragraph. Tell someone how much you love them and remind them why. After you photograph your card or the blog hop, be sure to address the envelope and mail it to that special someone!  

I will definitely mail this card to my awesome hubby and I know he will love the surprise mail :) !!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today....
