LOVE -Hearts, Hearts & More Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day

Here's wishing you all happiness & Love on this wonderful day!

This card was made for the challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog and I hope you all like it.  The challenge is Love, Hearts, Hearts, and More Hearts.  Perfect challenge for Valentine's Day.  I've had this image colored for a few days but wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it until tonight.  Nothing like waiting until almost the last minute to get it done.....   Have been diligently working on my Copics class and homework.  I think I'm learning something but boy, it takes a lot of practice and I'm still a long way from where I want to be.

Also entering challenge at Elphine House - Hearts
Bells 'n Whistles - Hearts
Truly Scrumptious - Love & Hearts
Paper Play - Love Letters
Card Making Mamas - Valentine

The DP is from my stash last year and sorry to say I don't remember where I got it or the name of it.  The die is one I just got from Memory Box and I love it. I used the hearts that were cut out from the die colored and added to the border along with the flowers from WOC, doily heart also from stash.

That's it from me tonight.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Welcome New Followers - Blog Candy Announcement


Just popping in to see what's going on and I see I have quite a few new followers.  I want to thank you all for being here and hope to see you back again soon.  If you get a chance, please leave me a comment so I can find all of you and stop by to visit.  I love meeting new crafters and seeing their amazing creations.


Will be setting up a page on my blog for my 4th Blog Anniversary in April.  All you will need to do is leave me a comment on THAT PAGE ONLY.  Comments left on the main blog page will NOT count to enter the candy draw.  You do not have to become a follower to enter and if you are entering only for the candy and do not have an active blog other than a candy blog, your comment will be removed.  I'm only doing this to be fair to all of my followers and fellow crafters.  I am asking that you post the candy link to your sidebar.  Can't get much easier than that my dear friends in blogland.  I will be adding items to the candy each week throughout the deadline period to keep you in suspense as to what you could win........shame on me....LOL

That's it from me for today, forewarned is forearmed.
Be back tomorrow with a card to share.

Valentine Day Love

It's Saturday night and we just finished watching the "Border War" basketball game between Missouri and Kansas.  GO TIGERS!!! YEAH--WE WON!!! This could be the last border war game ever as Missouri is moving from the Big 12 Conference to the SEC.  What history these two schools have and I know the rivalry will be missed by all.  It all dates clear back to the Civil War when most of Missouri and Kansas were on opposite sides and the sports rivalry continues on.

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and that none of you are experiences the tremendous snow storm to the north of us.  We got a little rain and just a dusting.  We really need the moisture but do not want near a much as Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska got.  So another big storm we missed!!!

Have to laugh at myself.  I got this wild hair to start doing more digital scrapbooking, which I can do, but I can't do one from scratch with Corel PrintShop so my page didn't work and I've been diligently trying to learn how to use the program.  Well, got burned out on that idea for now.........LOL  Also been working on my Copic class at CMC.  Time to get back to creating and quit stressing my brain.

I found this cute digi stamp named Kisses Cammy at Pretty Little Stamps, formerly Gurlee Girl and decided she would be perfect for a Valentine Day card.  I got two other ones and can't wait to get them colored up.  They are just adorable!  If you want to see these beautifully colored images hop on over to the CLP Challenge Blog and you will have a chance win 3 images for playing along.

Had not planned to write a book, just felt chatty........LOL
