Love

Mister Handmade in Israel likes my papercuts. For Valentine's Day I created this hand cut card with lots of curves on it. I decided to test myself and move away from my more usual block lettering (though aesthetically I do rather prefer block). I also decided to use an orange paper inlay instead of the more predictable red. It made the red heart stand out a little more.
He loved the card. Oh, and the Cadbury chocolate I gave him too.
Now, Mister Handmade in Israel didn't forget Valentine's Day. Oh no! Apparently he searched high and low for a suitable card but couldn't find one (to be fair to him, he does work in a particularly Orthodox Jewish area of Jerusalem where, I am pretty sure, they are not big on marking Saint Valentine). He decided to make his own card.
Whilst the kids decided that he had indeed got our hairstyles down to a tee, I honestly think that he had better stick to his day job. He got it just right with the flowers though...

It's the thought that counts, they say.

How wonderful! I love the stick figures. I imagine you guys had a chuckle over the card. :) What a beautiful bouquet to look forward to blooming.

Hi Lisa, I have craft envy! Your card is so beautiful and so much nicer than shop bought. You must have the steady hand of a surgeon!

Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.

Wow, that card takes a lot of patience and you did a wonderful job. I do appreciate the handmade card from your hubby, after all, it's the thought that counts :)

I love both cards, and I think your husband has a lot of self-confidence and humor! Honestly, I think I would be afraid to offer ANY card to someone who makes the sort of extraordinary cards you do! Flowers, though...I could do flowers :)

That is awesome! Beautifully detailed.
Well done to husband for his effort too :)

Thanks so much for joining in with #MMBC. Hope to see you Monday x

Guess, he could only think of "hand made":):) But he didn't give up, that would be to me what counted:)
