Love is in the air

I do struggle with Valentine's cards, so this set from Stampin Up is an old favourite!

I've coloured my fish with purple and pink polychromos and then blended it out with Gamsol, but I think I prefer the non-blended look.  I added some sparkle to the fish and heart and clear gloss to his eyes.  My wavy background also uses a metallic ink pad so it's lovely and sparkly :)
My scribble swirls are an MFT die.

And this one is Greg's Valentine card.  I'm not adding it to any challenges as it's 100% inspired by Inge's card here but I just wanted to keep a record so he doesn't get something the same for next year.  
Who am I kidding eh?  He would NEVER remember LOL ;)

These cards are both so cute. Love that pudgy little fish. In making my DH's Valentine this year, I realized (after it was all done) that I had used the same sentiment that I put on his wedding anniversary card! I'm not sure if I should try to change it out or not. Like your hubs, I don't think he'd even notice. Guess I'll think about that tomorrow.
