Valentine's Day 2013

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'll let you in on the inside joke between me and my hubby John: yes, we call each other "monkey," which is why "CardMonkey" came very naturally to me. 

While I'm the sweet one who makes cards and plays with paper, John makes up adorable stories about Flying Monkeys. For instance, at Christmas, he insisted that it's Flying Monkeys who pull Santa's sleigh, not reindeer. 

So I couldn't resist making him this Flying Monkey Valentine's Day card, complete with an ascot:

Cut: Silhouette America Online store (monkey, angel wings)
Accessories (scarf): Rumple Ribbon by Lovebug Creations
Paper from stash
Gel pen by Amy Chomas; Adhesive by 3M ATG
Do you have sweet traditions with your loved ones, or pet names for each other?  The best thing about making cards is being able to customize them for those we love. 

Happy ♥ Valentine's ♥ Day, Monkey Butt.
