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

Saucy Siciliana said...

Simply gorgeous, you are so talented! I am following you from Rome!

Saucy Siciliana said...

Thank you for stopping by. Yes, it is a small world with internet isn-t it? I am actually Sicilian but we immigrated to the States in the early 60s. We are now back in Trapani, Sicily but at the moment we are in Rome visiting. Just a few days ago we had a snow storm in Rome, it hadn't happened since 1985, the year my daughter was born. Romans are used to snow so it was a big mess. I remember in New York there was loads of snow but no problems whatsoever, they are very well equipped there. Nice to meet you! Let's keep in touch.

Saucy Siciliana said...

I forgot to say that my husband is Japanese, that's why my daughter is half Sicilian and half Japanese. She is very popular in America by the way, most of her fans on Facebook are Americans. She sings those oldies but goodies that I brought her up on so Americans love her...she also sings Elvis, so well that she has been called " the real daughter of Elvis" in fact she became a web celebrity thanks to Elvis. Youtube featured her video Baby Let's Play House during Elvis week and she got thousands of fans from all over the world and half a million views. What a bit of internet can do! As for me, I am famous for being her mom:)

Sassy Scrapper said...

Hi sweetheart, Congratulations on your winning team! So awesome when that happens. Our team lost in the Super Bowl. Whaaaa! oh well next year.
