Feel the LOVE w/ Henry

Good morning early birds!!
Wow, what a week this has been!! 
The cabinets in my scraproom finally got installed, had to move my desk around today, so that I could occupy more floor and wall space.  I am trying to maximize this room as much as I possibly can!!!  I am in a way smaller room than before and I still lots of sorting to go through!!  It all just seems never ending!!

Since it is Sunday, that means that it's time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge. 
This weeks theme is: 

For this weeks challenge, I decided to do something that I have never ever done before. 
I have created a Book Card!  I had to translate the measurements, but I think I followed the directions pretty good.  Now, I have to say that I can't tell you, nor show you what's inside this box, since it is complete and there's a HUGE surprise for hubby inside.  And since he likes to visit from time to time....I can't let the cat out of the bag just yet.  I will however, let you all know once he receives this card. 

So here is my weeks sample:
I fell in love with this guy, the minute I saw him at the ALL THAT SCRAPS store and new that I had to do something special with him and I think I achieved exactly that!!
Here are more close up of the flower bunches and Henry:

 I can't wait to show you the rest of this card!!!  I think this has to be my best project this year!!!
Lots of stitching, dry embossing, lots of distress ink, lots Maya Road products.  Well for the time being, while I make your head spin with the suspense!!  LOL!!

That is all from me today...I think!!  Make sure to make a stop at the Sentimental Sundays blog and see the amazing inspirational pieces the ladies created for you this week.
