A Ridiculous Valentine
Hello to all my blogland friends!
Today, as the title of my post suggests, I am posting the ridiculous Valentine's card I made for my husband. This card needs a little explanation - to look at it you would probably be left wondering "What??".
Okay, so have you ever heard that saying "Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story"? Well I am a firm believer in the saying "Don't let the real lyrics get in the way of singing along".
I am sure most of you will be familiar with Bruno Mars and his song "Grenade". When this song was first released I was merrily singing along to it in the car when my husband heard me sing "I'd jump in front of a tree for love". He stopped me mid-song, asked me to repeat what I'd just said, and then pointed out that the true lyrics were "I'd jump in front of a train for ya".
Right. Actually that made a lot more sense. Far braver to jump in front of a train than a tree.
However, "Jump in front of a tree for love" has stuck. I now often declare my love for Andrew with reference to throwing myself in front of trees and shrubbery. Here's the link to the song on YouTube. Am I the only person who thinks Bruno needs to work on his pronunciation?
So there you have it - a ridiculous Valentine's Day card that tells you a lot about how silly my husband and I can be. The images are "Zoe Celebrates" and "Big Tree", both from Make It Crafty - coloured with copics. The sentiment was computer generated on top of an old ticket freebie I lost the details for. I have added some silver and green ribbons from my stash. The DP (sadly hardly visible) is Fancy Pants Design "Love" with love hearts made from words on it.
I hope my equally ridiculous hubby will be very happy with his unconventional Valentine.
