A Simple and Modern Valentine

I just wanted to share a quick and easy Valentine I put together.  I cut out a banner using my Cricut and used a Martha Stewart heart punch. I used a mini heart shaped hole punch to create the small hearts.

Baby it's been cold outside.
I used the last snowy day to make my Valentine baskets for the kids.....
I think they were a hit! I made the sugar cookies shown above and some Peanut Butter cookies that had some heart shaped Dove chocolates on them.  I made chocolate truffles and placed them in the tin.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day on Friday.  Hug the ones you love!

What A Cute Couple!

Ok,  I'll admit I did this card a looong time ago.  I was looking at some old files and ran across this one that I hadn't posted. I'm not real crazy about the coloring job I did which is probably why it didn't get posted in the first place, but I thought I would share because I think it's so funny.  I also looked at the card and it has some hearts on it ( I made if for an anniversary) but I was thinking "wouldn't this be a funny Valentine card"?!  I might have to play around with the idea.  The digital image is from Just Inklined .  I colored the image with my Copic markers. I also paper pieced her shirt with some of the left over leopard print paper I had. If you want directions on paper piecing look back on my blog or type in paper piecing in the search location in the right hand column.  I also used a little scrap piece or ribbon for her hankie. 

Something new!  I have added a couple of lists in the right column. They are a list of the blogs I love and also a list of the places I look to get digital stamps. These should link you to their sites.  I thought this could be helpful. I know some of you have asked me for a list and I just hadn't gotten around to it.  So now you have it.

Well I am going to keep it short and sweet for now.  I have been sick for about 9 days now with this "flu like" virus going around.  Three words.. WASH YOUR HANDS! I am a fanatic about it and even had my flu shot but I still got sick.  It's some bad stuff people I wouldn't mess around with it.

Stay healthy and have a great day!
