Friends of Speedy TV

Did you all enjoy your weekend? It really cooled down here so no gardening!
I did have a big baby shower cake for Sat morn, then I got a panic
 call from a friends DIL. Help Davi we have corsages to make for
the PTA Valentine's Father Daughter dance, do
 you think you could come show us how!  Ha, I get there they have 
nothing but 150 carnations and wristlets. Well needless to say I had to
 run home get my tools and got some girls to help me do some of the easy steps
. We did it and got them all done! In case you dont know my mom owned a Florist
so I was a floral designer for years. Pretty much shot  the rest of my day. 
 But what a wonderful opportunity for Dads to honor their daughters,
and I was glad to hear that  it was a big success and they all
had great fun according to all the facebook reports! 

So onto our FOSTV challenge we are looking for non traditional 
Valentine's Day cards.Browns and with a bit or orange seemed pretty 
non traditional so here we are. Using some Lost & Found dp along with 
some SU brown for the card. No sewing just a little dotted swiss embossing folder
for the little top part along with the hearts cut with a Spellbinder heart die. 
The dyed ribbon was tied around that part.A little touch of  crocheted lace
 for the center. Then of course I used my 
for the two sentiments. I like the non traditional colors and of course my
 husband will love it because I made it for him!
I also made up 4 quick little tags
with things I love about him. I will put one in his
lunch box each day till Valentine's.

This is the Stamp Set for this weeks winner...
