Be Mine

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am so happy that Paul has the day off today but he has been extremely
under the weather the past several days, so I think we will be
spending a nice quiet day together and staying in where it's
nice and warm.

I was determined this Valentine's Day to make Paul's card.
He is always so sweet and appreciative of each one that he
receives and I am really happy to be able to give him this one.

I love this paper from Prima and once I knew that I was going to be using
the glittered chipboard pieces from Making Memories, that it would be
the perfect paper to use as my 'wallpaper'.

I have been using the Lacey Circles die from Spellbinders a lot lately
and thought it worked well for this design.

Before I go, I wanted to slip in one more Valentine greeting that I created a couple
weeks ago using one my new dies from Memory Box.

I LOVE this tree die called 'Twiggy Tree'.
It was perfect for these tiny punched hearts, which I did using my
Martha Stewart Heart to Heart border punch.  It's a great way to make a whole
bunch all at once.  The sentiment on both cards is a vintage stamp from
the original PSX company{circa 1999} and is still one of my very favorites.

I hope you have a lovely day celebrating with the one you love.

Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to stop by and I hope
while you're here, you'll say hello.
