I'm So Tuned Into You - Happy Valentine's Day!

YYY Happy Valentine's Day! YYY

I know I've been a bit quiet recently... I've been having some health troubles keeping me away from the computer and I am awfully behind on blogging and visiting... I apologise for that my friends! But let me assure you that I really miss visiting your beautiful blogs and I will catch up on my visits as soon as things start looking up...!

I couldn't however let the 'troubles' take over completely, especially with the Valentine's Day coming up! My hubby has been absolutely wonderful and really supportive (as he always is!) so I wanted to create something really special, to show him how grateful I am to have him in my life.

My hubby looooves vintage radios (actually, I do, too!) and he has quite a few old radios in his 'little' collection. So I wanted to create something that would capture the 'retro tune' vibes. And as it happens, today I my posting day over at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's blog and I am sharing this Vintage Radio card and a tutorial. Yay!
