Happy Valentine's Day!

I'll admit, I'm not big into Valentines Day - I either wish I had a hopeless romantic as a husband, or else I really don't think I would like that mushy stuff. However, now with kids, I have THE BEST four Valentines in the world! Ok five, if I throw my husband into the mix. HA!

Gretchen and Vanessa came over last night. It was fun! They each brought me a sweet Valentine gift - Gretchen gave me a tin with paper heart flowers, and a wonderful card she made using the new stamp she bought me from Elzybells - the "Hugs" and "Friends Forever" stamps. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! We joked about how we'd love to work for them as their stamps are awesome!!! She's supposed to be loading what she made me on her blog - check it out at I used me new stamp to create the card below - I'll be giving to a great friend for her birthday! Thanks, girls, for a great night!!!

I also got the Riley Moose stamp - the chair one - and I stamped out some of Gretchen's St. Patrick ones. Love these as well and will hopefully post a new creation with those later tonight.

I got a wonderful "honor" from a dear friend Paula - - it's the Excellent Blog award. Thanks Paula! She is one of the main reasons I got back into doing my own cards - she is an awesome designer who I met through hostess club - such an inspiration to me!

So to all my great friends, especially Gretchen, Vanessa, and Paula - thanks for helping inspire me!
