Valentines Day is coming up fast . . .

The reason I know this to be true is because the stores already have all their valentine stuff out. It is curious how we just go from holiday to holiday in our culture. Anyway, my anniversary is on the 5th and I am not sure if I will use this card for that (because DH already saw it) or for Valentines Day next month, but I really like how it turned out. The lips stamp is from Stampabilities (got it at Hobby Lobby) and I used the rock and roll technique to get the edges deep chocolate brown color. Then I overstamped french script from SU. The rest is just sponged and stamped as you see it -- no magic there, but the overall card turned out pleasing. I get excited when Valentines day is coming because my birthday is the 9th and my daughter and hubby also have their birthdays that month, so it is a fun celebratory month for us *smiles*

I just wanted you to know that I really enjoy reading your messages and I love your cards! I have no idea when you find the time to do that and run a house with two small children! ;0) My children are grown and I work full time and I sure don't have time to do all the things you do. My DH does all the laundry - I just don't have the time or energy! Thanks for sharing all that you do and I really enjoy the tutorials you have posted - one day once I get settled again I will try making the pine cone balls and the star - they are just beautiful! And hopefully I can get back to doing workshops and stamp camps if I can meet new customers in the area we are moving to. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Donna
