Flying Unicorn Valentine

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Hope you all had a great weekend and were able to celebrate Valentine's Day with someone you love. It was a cold day here yesterday and then snow overnight and now we are having freezing rain. They have travel advisories out now and I am sure the roads are bad. It's been raining for several hours now. 

It's just been a cold and overcast day. So for dinner we had some comfort type food. I had banana peppers in the freezer that I stuffed with hot and sweet sausage in August or September. Pulled them out and baked with some roasted tomato sauce that I made with our tomato harvest this summer. For a side dish I made some mac & cheese. 

It was a lot of work stuffing all the banana peppers we had this harvest, but I love pulling them out on nights like this and enjoying them. It makes me so appreciative of all the time and energy that my hubby puts into his gardens each summer. 

Now onto my card for today. I have a couple more Valentine cards to show and then that will be it for this season. This one I made for my great-niece who loves unicorns. Her Mom sent me a video with Allie thanking me for the Valentine. She even showed her class during her Zoom school call. So cute!

I started my card with the layout. I used this week's Splitcoaststampers sketch #840. It was a fun fold layout and I love how my card turned out. There is a tutorial for this front-flap fold and you can find it here. You could just use the sketch or take the double dare and make the fun fold. 
I used the Flying Unicorn die from CottageCutz for my card image. On the flap portion I used a die and cut some clouds and sponged the edges with distress ink. 

The background paper is some that I found at Hobby Lobby from Paper Studio and carries on the unicorn theme.

Added my valentine sentiment on the clouds and scattered a few hearts to complete this card. Well that's it for me for this card. So until next time.......God bless.
