Happy Valentine's Day - Smeared & Smudged Style

Valentine's Day- a day for all the mush and love and gunk.  Yep, I do enjoy that part of it, but at our house we do not celebrate Valentine's Day.  My DH said many, many years ago that he thinks it is stupid.  If you love someone no one should have to remind you with a special day to tell them.  Now, this only works because he does do things other days, if he didn't, that would be another story.  He really is a great guy!

In keeping with the anti- Valentine's Day process and as a challenged for those funky gals at Smeared & Smudged, where we take great pride in being just a bit different, we are doing a special Valentine's Day hop for you Smeared & Smudged Style.  The challenge part is NO red or pink, NO hearts and nothing CUTE, unless of course you make it uncute.

This is the card I will be giving my hubby today.

I used an image from the Smeaked Ink "Build a Zombie Alphabet Set" which is so much more than an alpha set.  I have used this set a BUNCH! 

No- go check out what everyone else has created and be sure to leave them some love while you are there!
