Have you ever found yourself thinking about card designs in the middle of the night, while lying in bed, because you can't sleep? Yeah, I suffer from insomnia, so it happens to me a lot. This is a card I thought about the other night. I made it, but I thought there was too much white, so I made another one. Much happier. Here's the result:

and the inside:

So, as I lay in bed, thinking about cards, I remembered I have the Borders 1 dies, which has the heart beat die included. Since Valentine's Day approaches, I figured I'd jump on the band wagon and make a Valentine's card for the hubby using that die. Then I started thinking about the stamp sentiments that would go with it. I remembered the thump sentiment and I swear I almost got up then and there to make the card. Almost. But I was nice and toasty warm under the covers and didn't want to leave my cocoon of blankets! LOL! And that first card? Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

See? Too much white. Anywhoooooo, that's it for now. Oh, and I'm entering this in the Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes challenge.

Super cute card, great sentiment perfect for your hunny. I don't have a problem sleeping, but I do make cards in my dreams if I remember them I will make a quick sketch for later.

Now that is perfection! The white one is nice BUT the redone version POPS. ANd omg, I so know what you mean! Laying there thinking about cards, and then when I get up *poof* the ideas are vanished.

Sometimes thinking about cards to make gets me off the other thoughts that are keeping me awake in the first place... ;) This is such a sweet valentine -- the glitter paper rocks!
