The non sappy sort


We dont really do Valentines Day here. We are not really a mushy sort of couple ( I think thats part of the reason we eloped). We do say I love you a lot to each other, but it's usually followed by but only because its tuesday, or  cause your but looks good in those jeans.  
Anyway, one of the fabulous challenges for Design Dollies was to create a Valentine something with no red or pink. 
So with those 2 things in mind this is what I came up with this....




The handwritten writing says — sorry you missed it, I wanted it to have a more traditional sugary valentine feel about it, with an unexpected message.

I tried a few things before choosing that one. This is one I tried, to give my 2 eldest boys.




Ps the good looking but will be playing with his boys ( Fatt Lipp) at the Carousel at Rooty Hill from 8, and I get to go for a bit! Whoo Hoo! Freedom! Dressing and talking to adults!! Whoo hoo!! Hurry up and finish your turn in laws so I can go over!!

Thanks for the giggle Sarah.. I love the cards.. We don't do cards anymore, but I reckon he'd love that one. Did buy him some cool boxer shorts though!!!! and if I bought him chocolate, I'd probably eat it!

Sarah, you crack me up! That card is too stinkin' cool! I love it! Mind if I steal that idea for my DH? We aren't mushy either. His brother took all the romantic genes in the family I think. Have a blast with 'adult time and conversation'! DH and I are getting away for one night next week and I can't wait!

Thanks for always managing to brighten my day, I love the card, especially the first for a valentines card, as you know their will be no cards here but that is my sort of card to give out, and the second is super gorgeous with those balloons and wow attaching the life savers, how gorgeous is that.

These are so cute - I love that your Valentines aren't sugary sweet (I'm not really into cliches either!). Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad it gave me a chance to come and visit yours! :)
