Pink, Pink and More Pink

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. My husband told me last night that he was sorry he was not romantic. He did give me some yummy candy.

This morning we go to our favorite spot Burdicks for coffee and scones. Now for about a month I have been admiring two gorgeous paintings. Then I see the artist come in and it looks to me she is changing her paintings on the wall.

However, my husband says to me the paintings are "yours".  "Happy Valentine's Day." I have to say I was speechless and there were tears. But what was really cool was he arranged for the artist to sit and talk with us. The name of the painting is "Bloom". I would say my wonderful husband is very romantic. I have had a very difficult year, my husband has been amazing. I love him more than ever. Below is my gift:

Now back to my Tilda card. I just love this sweet little image.
