Love You Much

I don't often mix my personal life with my business life, but I do want to explain my lack of postings lately. My Father-in-Law was put in Hospice this past Tuesday, and my husband & I have been spending much of our time with him and our family. He was admitted with the thought that they would regulate the pain medication and then he would return home, but he has declined rather quickly in the last few days. He is comfortable now, and sleeping most of the time.

I do have a card to share, another Valentine. This one I did for a challenge. We were to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Pretty in Pink. I love this color combination! I used Chocolate Chip for my base, Pretty in Pink for the main layer and accented with Real Red. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. I used the new stamp sets, Vintage Vogue and Well Scripted from the Occasions Mini Catalog and the new Small Heart Punch.

Little Vacation

Just got back from a long weekend trip with my three sisters to Marco Island, Florida. It was so nice to escape the gray dreary skies, cold temperatures and snow, even if it was only for four days. I am a firm believer that we need some sunshine in our lives to keep us feeling alive! I had heard that as of the last week in January, we had only had one day that the sun had managed to shine. What a wonderful feeling it was to have the sun shining on my face, the white sand between my toes, and the sound of the waves splashing on the beach. I think this is just what I needed to get me rejuvenated so I can make it through these last few weeks of winter. I'm still catching up on a few things around here after being gone, but I should have time to post a project for you tomorrow. Until then, I hope the sun is shining where ever you are!

Thanks for stopping by today.

More Valentines

Here's another Valentine card featuring the Specialty Designer Series Paper Sending Love, and the I {Heart} Hearts and Well Scripted Stamp Sets, all found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

My next class is Sunday, February 28. This is my Let's Get Organized Class. Decorate the Forget-Me-Not Keeper & it's 12 dividers using the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper found in the Occasions Mini. We will also create coordinating cards to get you started on using this organizational system you're sure to love! This class is $40.
