Here is a funny little gift you can share with your Valentine.

Small Red Heart Candies
Baby Food Jar

1}Place the candy into a clean baby food jar 
2}Attach this little poem.

Here is something from the cupids above
Who fly along with all the doves
Whose arrows have hit many lonely hearts
they send you a gift for your heart
your kindness and love have been so true
so the cupids have sent you
their little poo-poo.

I thought this was too cute that I HAD to pass along to you all!

Good afternoon everyone!  I got some great news this morning.  I had entered a contest on
the Tatertots & Jello Blog last week.  The contest was for The Ribbon Retreat and to win a
$50.00 certificate from The Ribbon Retreat.  I got email this morning telling me that I had won that contest.  I went and looked back on the site and I was entry #1014!!!  Holy cow!  LoL!  Please check out The Ribbon Retreats site, they really do have great ribbon as I have ordered from them before and love what I have.  Great prices , and they have fabric as well.

I wanted to share with you also two more cards that I have completed:

This card was given to Eric last night after I made it.  Not a Valentine's Day's Just Because.

And the next card:
Called Love Bug, this card doesn't open but rather there is a note card that's scalloped that is placed into this pocket card.

Thanks for stopping by, Have a great day!

It's freezing here. Maybe that's why I'm showing you some Easter cards; to warm up.

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are or will have a FABULOUS DAY Saturday. Here
in Milford, Ohio where I live, its freezing right now outside. Although quite a sight to
see; all this new snow we received Thursday. I love the snow. It's very tranquil and peaceful.
When I was a kid sled riding was my thing, building snowman not so much. You see I
have an older brother and so I had to keep moving {sled riding} or else I would get zinged in the
head with a nice ole snowball...OUCH!

So snowmen we out of the question because I had to be quicker than he was.

 So the other night I created 2 new cards; Easter cards.  I hope you like them.
The first one is called "Happy Easter Weave Card"

 As you can see now why I call it the weave card.  I used my Cricut Expression with the 'Beyond Birthdays' cartridge to make the eggs, Cricut cartridge 'Storybook' for the word "HAPPY", and 'Walk in My Garden' cartridge for the yellow daisy.
I took purple strips all the same size and with the one, I used that to weave in and out of the
eggs. I had cut on the back of each egg to make tiny slits.  Also I wanted to add a little something up at the top right near the word "HAPPY", it just looked to bare to me.  So what I did was used my Krylon 18kt GOLD Leafing Pen to put little dots on the top right-hand corner.
You can see on the second pic the gold dots better as you can also see the inside of the card {first picture} which also has the gold dots on the corners.

The next card I did is entitled "Rabbit and a Rose".
This card is layered FOUR times, and layered three times inside.  The grass on this card is
made using Doodle Bug green flock.  The rest of the Rabbit was colored using Copic Sketch Markers.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards, thank you for stopping by!

Good afternoon everyone!  Hope every ones Thursday is going great!  I wanted to tell you about the
latest Hodge Podge Shop's challenge.  It is a White On White Challenge.  Create a
card using white with just a hint of color.  Please visit the The Hodge Podge Shop's Blog to join in on
this challenge and to view the DT's take on this particular one.
Below is my take on it.  I used the Hodge Podge Shop's "wild flower" digi-stamp, I added some dimension to it by cutting out two additional flowers of the same stamp.  Then added some Doodle Bug glitter to
make my pink sparkle.  I then added some sewing on the side and the top borders of the
card; also in pink.  I hope you like and I hope you also will participate in this
