Happy Valentine's Day for 2010!

Happy Valentine's Day!

For the past two weeks, I've stayed busy making Valentine cards for family and friends. You'll find an eclectic group of cards to view, so am hoping that you find one that inspires you. I want to give credit to my friend, Mita, who introduced me to a water spray technique to use on die cut flowers. You'll notice that hearts and flowers are abundant and many of them have been sprayed with water to get a store bought effect (that's what I call cost savings!) My sweet hubby says I really threw myself into making the hearts and flowers :-) Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have a question, or even a comment, please let me know; I appreciate your visit.

Happy New Year for 2010!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's nearly two months since the last posting! My life stays busy especially with a move to a new home, changing part time jobs, and traveling with sweet hubby every now and then since we left our previous abode. It took nearly a month to get back into the swing of things when it came to creating cards; I felt overwhelmed unpacking all the paper crafting supplies. In fact, I almost began to cry because there was so much to take out of boxes and find a place where they would fit and where I would have easy access to them, not to mention remembering where they are stored :-) The trials and tribulations of growing older and not remembering as well as I did as a young woman :-) But, I'm thankful to wake up each day with a smile on my face because God gave me more time to become kinder and wiser (it's a challenge more often than not...ha ha!)

I have a lot of pictures to post, so bear with me and if you have time, please enjoy them. If you want any info regarding what you see, please let me know; I'm more than happy to give you the details. I want to get back into participating in challenges, but right now I'm thrilled to find time to make Valentine cards for family and friends. I'll get those posted later.

Enjoy your weekend and may the best NFC and AFC team win on Sunday (I have no favorites this year.)
