Camera Valentines Card

This morning at about 8:20 my phone rang and my caller ID told me it was my son's elementary school calling. These phone calls seldom presage good news, so I nervously answered the phone. Turns out it was my 4th grader calling to remind me I hadn't given him a card for his teacher for Valentine's Day as I had promised (the Spiderman kit we bought only had one teacher card and he has two teachers, so I had told him I would make a Valentine for his other teacher), so could I please make one and bring it over to the school ASAP? So I ended up scrapping a quick Valentine using a few Cricut cuts. The card base is actually a photo mat for a 6" x 8" photo, but the tab reminded me of a camera viewfinder, so I went with that, but if the teacher thinks it's a file tab, that's okay, too!

for a pretty quick card, it turned out spectacular. My first impression was that it was a camera. I love the little layers and touches that make it special. What a great mom! Happy Valentines day and thanks for joining our challenge at Bitten by the Bug2.

Cute card. Sometimes those ones we have to do quickly turn out the best.

Oh yes - only used once! Definitely in need of some love. Great effort - it doesn't look like a quick card at all. The camera look is great. Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
