Pucker up and blush!

I made this card for a special girl which whom I have developed a nice relationship even though we only see each other once every two or three weeks and for around 30 minutes while she works on "beautifying me," as in facial hair removal. I go to see her in the evenings when I leave work stressing like a mad woman, but when I get to her office, that waterfall sound, the relaxing music and dimmed lights... my whole being changes into a slower speed. And then we start talking and laughing, because we find the humor in what"s going on at the time. Last time I saw her she commented on loving the new slogan for one of the lines of products they carry. And I asked her what was it. Can you guess? It's "Pucker up and blush!" So in appreciation for how nice she is to me, I decided that on my next appointment (which just happens to be on Valentine's Day) I will bring some special cookies I ordered and give those to her with this card. Hope you like it!
