Valentines for "My Guys"

I don't care how old we get, I will still give Valentine's to "My Guys" - my husband and my 19 year old son. This year I made these cute little 3" X 3" cards. I got my inspiration from Kristina Werner's blog. Wow, does that gal have some great ideas and some awesome tutorial videos. Be sure to check her out if you haven't already. The stamps I used are free digi's - if I remember correctly both are from Create with TLC
My son just bought an electric guitar and is totally into learning how to play, so when I came across this freebie, there was no doubt what was going to be on his card. I also used one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches on the border. Love them!
Hey, I just realized that I didn't use a nestie or a embossing folder on either of these cards. That has to be a first in a long time. They are never far out of reach when I'm playing.
I used Kraft paper for the base of both cards, but the rest of my supplies were scraps. I save every last crumb of paper, ribbon, whatever, so it's always a blast for me when I use something up. : )
More soon!
