Charisma cardz and paperplay challenges

Good morning everyone! What a busy morning i`ve had, I am sooo behind with everything this morning I just don`t know where the time goes.

Today I wanted to show you a card I made secretly late last night, while hubby and the boys were fast asleep. As it`s a card for valentines day for the best hubby I could ask for. Poor fella, he does put up alot from me, with all my crafting and I love him to bits. I managed to get down the town early yesterday and popped into the local craft shop and guess what they had a mahooosive sale on. Now to be honest I like to shop online as there isn`t alot of choice in crafting goodies down the town, but they had a sale on for the nestabilities and MS punches. Of course, because santa couldn`t bring me these at christmas (I must have been a baaad girl) I thought an oppotunity was here to be had. What a shame the sale finishes tomorrow, but never mind.
SoI`m going to enter this into paperplay challenges Week 2 Furry friends and also charisma cardz for anything new.
The card was made using BG sugar rush papers, Kraftin Kimmie stamp Lucy & Rickie, Sizzlits die scribbles#7, new MS lace hearts punch and new nestibilities.
I stitched around the edge of the card and around the layered `love` paper(although this isn`t very clear). I coloured the image with my promarkers and used water colour pink for the back ground. I layered the two skunks, so hopefully they pop out and then added flowers from my stash.
Sorry a bit of a long post.
Hope you`re all keeping warm and cosy.
