For Better or Worse!!!

Hello everybody!!!. Time for another challenge in our "Crafty Gals" Group, also I follow the Sweet Sunday Sketch so I'm entering this card on the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge as well. Please visit the other Gals on my right side of the blog to see everyone's projects. This time was Lela's time to challenge us and here is what she told us to do:
"ReCipE for A VaLEntiNE"

February is the month of LOVE and what could be better than showing off our idea of a "ReCipE for A VaLEntiNE". Last year DH made me chocolate dipped strawberries. He found the recipe on-line and they were fabulous. It was wonderful but a surprise as usually he gets me roses. What makes the perfect VaLEntiNE surprise? Is it candy, flowers, love notes? Let's see your ReCipE for sharing LOVE. Don't forget to add a Heart or 2 on our project.

I know I didn't cook anything (don't like it that much) and didn't use hearts on it... buttttt.... isn't this image pure LOVE???. I hope this could be us with my husband many years from now!!!. The recipe???: "Friendship", as I read today: "Friendship is a serious affection; the most sublime of all affections, because it is founded on principle, and cemented by time", and the moment I read this I thought that's the most perfect recipe for an everlasting LOVE. The perfect Valentine surprise???. This card for my husband..., he will love this!!!


For this card I used:

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Early Expresso from SU and Cream from Recollections
Designer Paper: Really don't remember it is sooo old!!!
Stamps: Jack and Ginger from StampingBella
Accessories: Copic Markers, Paper Piercing tool kit from SU, Chocolate Chip Grossgrain Ribbon Striped from SU and my sewing machine. You can't really see it but the cream paper is embossed with Perfect Dots embossing folder from SU.
