CASology Week 133: Love

I have shouted my love from the roof-tops - well nearly. Anyone can surely read it here, and there, and everywhere I post about my husband, Tom.  So how does this week's cue word "LOVE" at CASology this week inspire me to make one more Valentine?  Well, a girl's got to do, what a girl's got to do. It's time to shake it up!

Enter: my Love-o-meter:

 
I love to create my own papers.  This one, found inside that little shaker love-O-meter is my take on the old "he loves me, he loves me not" where I've used one tone of pink for the "he loves me not", and a dark tone of pink for the "He loves me!"  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy - word. 
 
Of course all of those kisses come from the Proof Positive cover panel from MFT. [on sale now] I created the meter by using a little Cuttlebug postage stamp die - it may have been in the box when I bought it but who remembers that far back?
 
When Tom opens the card, I will conveniently have funneled all of the kisses to the upper level, and make him shake it, baby...
 
Edited to send over to Virginia's View Challenge #12 ... how could I forget?  Must have had my mind on other things ;]

Your love-o-metre is brilliant and simply gorgeous, Michele ... Tom is bound to love it (I do!) and to spend some fun time playing ... or maybe he'll just want to collect on all those kisses!! Anita :)
