Hi everyone!

I know there are a hundred versions on here, but I truly enjoy taking a gander at the work of others and figured someone might find enjoyment in mine.  Wink

Enjoy!







Probably one of the most important things ever!







ACK!!!



It makes my belly SO happy.





Everyone says he looks like he's a Baldwin brother - seriously. Waiters, cashiers, random people walking down the street....











He doesn't love her, but over the years I've swayed him a bit. Smiley









Okay, so when we first got together he was a total goth boy. We would always joke that he was a freak and I was a punk (see below) and with our forces combined we would one day save the world.





Nothing against babies!!! We've just decided to not have children.







This one just cracked me up. He does have giant hands though - almost disproportionately so.  Cheesy

I love this! This gives me an idea for a friend of mine who is a poker fanatic. How did you punch through the cards?

Thanks everyone! I actually just used a regular hole punch to put the holes in the cards. Not the easiest thing, but also not as hard as I expected.

Sorry this might be an obvious question, but what's the material/stickers you put on each card for the writing?

Not at all! I actually just used a thick printer paper for the quotes. Not quite card stock thickness, but a little thicker then standard. I cut them out with various edging scissors and just glued them to the card with modge podge. I planned on clear coating each card, but never did. It has held up extremely well even without it.

I love this! Too cute! I want to do it...is it too ambitious to want to do it and give it to him on Valentine's Day?  Undecided

I suppose I could do it for his wedding present...7 months to work on it then! How long did this take you?

I am extremely meticulous (as you can probably tell) so it took me about a month to complete. It really depends on how much you want to put into it (i.e. how much of a perfectionist you are) and how much free time you have. You could definitely make one in a weekend if you had the time though! I chose different fonts for each saying which took awhile. I've seen a lot of people handwrite the sayings though and that looks really nice as well. It would make a SPECTACULAR wedding present too!!  Grin I actually may make another for our anniversary - or something similar with a different spin on it.

Good luck! Can't wait to see the results of everyone else!  Smiley
