Donut Valentine's Day/Thinking of You card

This donut Valentine's Day/Thinking of You card is for Seattle cousin in the States, a guy. The A Whole Lot donut digi is from the now defunct Whimsie Doodles. I was so sorry to see them go. They had some really great humorous stamps (e.g. this Mac to My Cheese Valentine's Day card). The sentiment that was with the stamp was 'I like you a hole lot', but as this is from my husband and me, I made a new sentiment that says 'We like you a hole lot'. I don't think Valentines have to be 'romantic', for me Valentine's Day is a way to let anyone you care about know you're thinking of them. An example of which is this Panda Bear Valentine's Day card I sent to another cousin a few years back. She was going through a rough patch at the time and I wanted to cheer her up. 

If you like this stamp, Prettygrafik's has some cute donut digis that are similar, along with donut digital papers (which are what I used here). You can have fun coming up with puns...donut you know it.

Embellishments were kept simple with a bit of ribbon and some CANDi dots (another thing I miss).
