Valentine's Day Cards

I promised Theresa, my sister, that I wouldn't post this until the recipient (Cara & Tony) received the card she made for them. Well . . . Cara got the card today!! So . . . I could post Theresa's beautiful card! Theresa made them a card, to celebrate their Mexico/no-kid vacation next week. Didn't Theresa do a great job! I just love the little bikini, the sand, and the fish! Theresa doesn't give herself enough credit, for being creative! Great job Sissy, on the Criss-Cross card! Cara, hope you and Tony have a wonderful time!

Liz (Tidbits from Liz blog), our January Blog Candy winner, received her composition notebook in the mail. If you get a chance, be sure to check out her blog. I so look forward to reading her blog, whenever she posts . . . I know you will too! Congratulations again Liz!

I've had a busy week . . . I'm registered for the Stampin' Up! half-day regional seminar, in Lincoln, NE, on March 7th. When the seminar opened to guests, it sold out in
one day! This is the first Stampin' Up! regionals that I'm going to . . . and I'll be by myself! I'm going to partake in card & 3-D swaps, that are done there at the hotel. I went over to Jeri's (my upline) house last night and we plotted out the projects that I'm going to do, what colors, and what I needed to buy. I promise to posts all my little projects, once I'm done. Oh, I'm looking so forward to this!

I made two Valentine Anniversary cards too (left)! These are a booger to find @ Hallmark sometimes! Theresa, my sister, and her husband and Jenny, girlfriend, and her husband are celebrating their Valentine wedding anniversaries, this Saturday! Theresa and Bruce are celebrating 17 years of marriage and Jenny and Scott are celebrating 5 years of marriage. Congratulations to you gals, and your husbands of course, on so many years of marital bliss!

Here's the Valentine's day card I made for Terry. . . told you that I loved the criss-cross card!
Figured if I slapped the truck on there, it would make it masculine?! :o) I ran the stripes through the valentine heart Cuttlebug embossing folder too (you can see the hearts better if you click on it). I love this Stampin' Up! Loads of Love stamp set. It come with a tree, flowers, and hearts, that you can put in the back of the truck. There is also a Loads of Love accessory stamp set that comes with about 5 more holidays. I love this stamp set, because it is so versatile and covers alot of the major holidays . . . alot of bang for the buck!

Got another busy weekend too! I took the day off of work tomorrow, so we could
attend the boys Valentine parties. I look forward to these 'lil parties . . . I'll be sure to take our camera too! Oh no . . . gee . . . twist my arm . . . another reason to scrapbook/craft! Got Jenny, Tammy, and Theresa coming for the Address Book Workshop tomorrow night. Don't tell them . . . but I'll find a way to sneak in a picture . . . they're not getting away that easy this time! Terry and I ordered our Valentine's day dinner through Lobster Gram. Have you ever tried them? It's a catalog company, that deals with shrimp, crab, lobster, and steak. We've been ordering from them, since our first anniversary and haven't been disappointed yet! On Sunday, Dad & LaDonna are coming to KC. We're going to meet them for breakfast. Maybe sometime after breakfast, I'll be able to find sometime to craft? Don't you think? :o) I sure hope so!

I hope you and your valentine, whoever he/she may be, have a wonderful and
Happy Valentine's Day! Thanks for stopping by the craft room!
