Cuttlebug Sweet For My Sweet

Hi and welcome to the Cuttlebug challenge blogspot Luv Bug weekend! I'm so happy you've joined us for our Valetine fun! If you just happened to be visiting my blog, go to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog now to start our blog hop. If you've endured and made it to my blog - #21 in the blog hop -then you've almost made it! But before I give you any "magic" word I have a little giveaway of my own, here's my blog candy:

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me why you love Valentine's Day. I'll pick a winner on Monday!
And I want to quickly share a little "sweet for my sweet". I made him a Valentine, I'm sure he will luv all the pink! (NOT). I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug to make this card.

Now on to business. Rumor has it that a man named ROBERT wrote these beautiful words:) Now go to the next blog, which is Maggie's. And don't forget to sign up as a follower of the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and grab the blinkie for your own page. Good luck and happy blogging.

Very early Good Morning to you Amber! There is not much I don't like about Valentine's Day... red, white, pink, chocolate, cinnamon hearts, flowers,family, friends, hugs and kisses. To watch my children create heart cards... remembering helping them, when they were very little, to go through their class lists and seeing them excitedly scrawl the names in thier "childprint". Too cute!! Receiving those beautiful heart cards my kids made at school for me. It is the day when being mushy and sentimental is cool. But mostly I like Valentine's Day because it is the day you are reminded how good it truly is to carry your heart on your sleeve !!

Mrs J said...

Amber, this is so cute! Your hubby will love it, such a "sweet" sentiment too!
Happy Luv Bug Weekend!
Hugs Mrs Jx

Love that card! I love Valentines Day simply for the sugar high I get from eating all that yummy chocolate! LOL

Bonnie said...

Blog hop and I seem to have started at the end. Now I don't want to go to the grocery store. Love the blog candy!!!!
What I like about Valentine's Day?? I think just getting that little brown, decorated bag in elementary school.I'd go home and look at each card and at that age you always put more meaning in the card than was really there. I still have some of these somewhere.

Eva said...

Love your card and wow, what a great prize!!!

hokeycokey said...

love the blog hop - a great idea!
I love valentine's because you can be as soppy and romantic as you want (even if it's only for one day of the year!)

Stacy said...

Your card is just adorable! Valentines is such a wonderful excuse to make cute things and give away candy!!! Love it!

Lea L. said...

Your card is so sweet...he will love it, even though it is all pink! Hee hee!

Why do I love Valentine's day...because it is just another day to celebrate the people I love. My husband of course, but also my pups, my little brother, my parents, my inlaws...everyone who is special to me. While the romance part is nice, I prefer the part that is just about love. :)

Debbie said...

Linda aka backroads girl said...

Valentine's Day: hmmm, chocolate! Flowers! Cards!Day spent with by dh of 41 years :-). It just stands for lots of love... for my dh, my daughters, my 3 grandkids... not to mention all my wonderful friends!And it means Spring is close at hand! It's a nice break in thought anyway from winter (even though I live in Florida... we've been rather chilly here lately!). But no white stuff (snow and ice). Had enough of that in Wyoming for 19 years :)

I love valentines day not for the normal reasons people love it. Every Valentines day me my DH and 2 of our best couple friends that the men have been friends over 25 years and all thier wives like each other. We all go out to a resturant we can only afford to go to once a year and have a great time with great friends! It doesnt hurt the the resturant we choose actually knows how to take and KEEP reservations even on V-day!

I love Valentine's day because it is the one day of the year when it is ok to be sappy, and for your husband to be overly affectionate. Honestly, mine is all the time. I just love how sweet he is. I also love making the kids something special, and watching their faces glow. It's my way of showing them how much I love them. I really like your blog, and I will have to stop back by. Blessings.

Softangelkisses said...

What I love about Valentine's Day is that Abby is really into it this year! Everyone is a "sweetie" and we have purchased more boxes of Valentine's than I care to remember. Want a Pooh, Darby, Tigger, Wall-E, or Disney?

Karen said...

What a fabulouse Prize Amber. So sweet, and what a lovely card. He will enjoy it!

Martha said...

The blog hop is so much fun!
Love your blog and the cards you make are beautiful.

Merry said...

Hi there a wonderful blog. I must admit I am not normally a Valentines Day person but after seeing all these wonderful gift ideas I will be creating something for all the family this year. Love the colours, ideas and the chocolate.

Debbie's Blog of Life said...

I'm loving this Blog Hop! I love Valentine's Day for the bright colors, the feeling of love to share with everyone in your life and even those who just pass through. Love is for all and not just a day for couples. :)

ScrappinNana said...

I love this blog hop. Your card is really awesome.The three things I love about Valentine's Day are chocolate,the red decorations and cards (my fav color)and getting a super chance to tell everyone I love them.

.:liza:. said...

Love that card!
My fave thing about Valentines day is the chance to show my loved ones how much I care about them...and the chocolate of course!

Annette said...

I love your blog candy, that is so funny, I'll send you an email and tell you why. I love Valentines day, especially this year because I am hoping for a proposal, a ring, anything from my sweetie!! hee hee I love your card, your husband will love it! Have a great weekend!

Heidi said...

I love that card! What a fun way to express your love to your hubby. And manly men like pink, so he should be ok! ;) The thing I love most about Valentine's Day is that everyone seems to be more gentler, kinder, etc on that day... I don't know if it's my wishful thinking or looking at the world through rosy glasses, but I think since it's a holiday people are more aware of the love they have in their hearts and lives so they are just nicer to those they come in contact with that day! Cheesy, I know, but I love it! The world needs more days like that!

Sam said...

Am I nearly at the end of the blog hop? It's been fun!! I love Valentine's Day because it reminds us that we should love each other!

Donna said...

What a great blog hop. I love your card. Why do I love Valentine's Day? because it reminds me of what I should remember everyday. That each person I know is special and deserves to be treated everyday the way I would treat them on Valentine's Day! Happy Valentine's Day!

Janet Z said...

I love Valentines Day because my Dad still makes it a special day for me even though I'm 53!!!

Ziggyeor said...

Cute card even if it is pink!

I love Valentine's Day because it's a cardmaking and candy excuse LOL!

Jacqueline Bayliff said...

Valentines means love and devotion and gives us the opportunity to tell those we love how much they mean to us this day and every day after. That is why I love Valentine's Day.

Colleen said...

Great chance to win that beautiful prize.

I used to hate Valentine's Day because it was my first husband's birthday and he always said, "you don't buy others presents on your birthday" so I never got anything on Valentine's Day. My second husband is just the greatest guy in the world and always remembers me, so Valetine's Day is just another day he shows me how much he loves me.

Suzanne said...

I am loving the Blog Hop. A fun way to spend a cold Friday evening. What I like about Valentines Day is that on that day everyone is so nice to each other and smiling and happy! Candy hearts aren't bad either!

LISA said...

CUTE PROJECT

Gerriann said...

angelmom916 aka Linda said...

I love valentines day because

It represents love and letting someone know how much they mean to you.

My 2 wonderful sons are the LOVE of my life

It reminds you to always let those you treasure know how much you love them everyday,not just this day.

Thanks. I love your card and the prize is awesome. I love butterflies. Thanks for being so generous! Linda

debb said...

Great card! Why do I love Valentine's Day- Let me count the ways! Mostly I love being able to give pink and red hearts to the men in my life (hubby and college age sons)! I love to let them know how special they are - it is probably the only day I am able to be soooo mushy! debb

Cassie said...

I love your card!
One thing I love about Valentine's day is that it brings back memories of waking up on Valentine's day as a little girl, finding a heart shaped box on my nightstand from my Dad.

memoriesforlifescrapbooks said...

I love Valentine's Day because my mom always sends me the best card :)
I can't wait to get it!

greenc said...

Great card! I've really enjoyed the blog hop. Got to visit some blogs that I didn't know existed. Great fun! What I like about Valentine's day is that I get chocolate!!! And it's okay to eat it! It's a known fact that chocolate received as a gift contains no calories! Didn't you know that!?! Well, now you do! :) Cathy

sweet card. I love valentine's day because it is a special time to tell my family how much I love them.

Diane said...

Why do I love Valentine's Day? Hmmm...flowers and chocolate for starters. But mostly for the handmade cards from my little ones.

Tammie said...

Here's one for you Ber...(although I know that I can't actually win yours because I'm fam) What I love about V'day...not getting any more polar bear stuffed animals. One V'day when we were dating, I was certain a ring was on the way...He had been extra secretive. My hopes were high....I got a stuffed polar bear holding a baby bear and a box of candy. Talk about let down....although I never let on at the time, I did tell him years later and we had a good laugh.

Lori A. said...

I love making valentine's with my kids to pass out at school. :)
