Romance is not dead!

Hi everyone,

I am a happy camper at the moment.  I've managed to "fix" my problem with blogger (thanks to my Hero Arts friends on flickr).  :D xoxoxoxo

So I have an ATC to share with you all today.
I made this for the latest Hero Arts challenge here.  I used 3 of the themes for this month: Flowers, ATCs & Pencils.  After watching this technique video I decided to get out my Prismacolor Pencils & have a go.  I did make a boo-boo so covered it up with the ribbon bow. 

I have also entered this into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge here.  I hope that this is ok for the challenge.   

The name of my ATC is Romance is not DEAD!  It came about because my "loving" dh (insert sarcastic tone) did absolutely nothing for Mother's Day.  He couldn't even get me a card (one of my cards) from my card box & write in it.  Men hmph! ;P
Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo

Okay, give me your phone number. . .I'm calling your husband and giving him a good talking to! What is the matter with him? I hope you told him he can make his own dinner, do his own laundry and take care of the kids, while you head out for a day of fun!

Well, now that I got that off my chest, I love your card, Paula! The distressed, text background is gorgeous! It makes your beautiful flower glow! Nicely done! Sending you a big, Mother's Day hug!
