Joshua's Valentine

It's time for Teapot Tuesday again.  Yes, I know it's Thursday, but this post is for my SCS Teapot Tuesday card.  This week the card is going out to a young boy who is very ill and only 5 years old.  My heart goes out to his mom and the rest of his family and prayers are said for their peace and comfort and his recovery if it be His will.   They wanted to send him cards to uplift his spirits and bring a smile to his face, so we were asked to do Valentine cards.  I tried not to be too girly. 

Pretty simple, but I really like how it turned out. 
Card stock - GP white; SU Lovely Lilac
Stamp set - SU Happy Heart Day.  I also used A Light Heart inside the card stamped it in Lovely Lilac
Pattern Paper - Lovey Dovey from Oriental Trading
Ribbon - Michael's - Textured Trios.  You might not be able to tell, but I put 3 pleats  in the ribbon on the left side of the card.  I've got to search for a tutorial on how to do that because this was NOT easy.
Dies are Nestabilities - Classic Large Ovals, and Scalloped Oval.
Copics:  B0000; E31, E34, E35; R39; RV21, RV23; BV01, BV11, V17.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all your comments.  Have a blessed day.


  1. What a cute card Margaret but I'm sorry it's for such a sad reason! I'll be keeping the family in my prayers....TFS!!!

  2. Maggie, I love the little mouse. I think it is perfect for a 5yr old boy. So hard to even think about a child being sick. Blessing to him and his family.

  3. This turned out adorable! I love all the patterns and colors. Great job! :)

  4. It's hard not to be "girly" at Valentine's....I think its the one time of the year though that all love "girly" things, even boys! : ) I'm sure he'll love it and his family will be blessed by it.

  5. Great card for Joshua, Maggie. Thanks for jumping in and sending your special love.

  6. Such a cute design and i am sure he will love it.

  7. This is adorable and I'll bet he loves this sweet Valentine :)
