Love Love Love

I love Valentine's Day.
I love Pink.
I love Roses.
I love my hubby.
Not in that order, of course.

Week 6 Card! Love is...

This was a perfect prompt for the week of Valentine's Day. I came across this quote a while ago and shared it with Rob. It has stayed with suits our story perfectly of late. I changed it a bit -- the card reads "Love is what you've been through together."

Happy Valentine's Day!

{red glitter heart from a pack off the $1 rack at Target...glitter postage sticker from a pack off the $1 rack at Jo-Anne Fabrics...can't resist Valentine bits and who doesn't love a good bargain!}

Finished My Card Deck Pouch!

Finally found my PINKING SHEARS (why were they NOT in the sewing basket???)...and finished my little pouch for the cards ...totally copied Ms. Emily's look....(if it ain't broke...) - added my newest little favorite embellishment....these Prima flowers with the center the colors but there are not enough in the package!!
Loved this part of the the "organic" look - the felt and the hand-stitching....
Lotta love!

Art Deck - Week 5

Week of February 4 - prompt was to use a bit of epherma on our card. I had just returned from a road trip with my sister and niece, so there were plenty of scraps to chose from! We stopped at the outlets on the way home for a quick shopping spree. J Crew was having a terrific sale...picked up some great buys for hubby (hence the JCrew price tag on my card)...and our stop in Target yielded some Valentine's Day candies--Harry & David's Chocoloate Covered Bing Cherries. Yum-O! A bit of red ribbon and some journaling on the back..and voila! Card 5 complete!

By the way--anyone out there a member of the Epherma Society of America? Who knew?

Week 4 - Art Deck

This week's prompt was to journal about a symbol that you love.

How simple for me. My favorite symbol is a heart. One of the things I most often doodle....always added after my signature when I sign cards or letters to friends and family...part of my "hallmark" on the back of handmade creations...they represent VALENTINE'S DAY...and they are the one thing Rob and I collect together. All my favorite things. I love hearts.
