Sweet Valentine.....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all
had a fabulous weekend! I sure did! I had a blast at my
crop til ya drop! In fact... I finally "Dropped" at 4am
Saturday morning! Then I went home only to have my
second wind kick in and stayed up til after 6am before finally
going to bed.... Then when I finally woke up on Saturday I
pretty much spent that day doing nothing! Talk about a
great weekend! How often does that happen? You know....
Doing nothing? LOL I managed to get 16 sets of cards completed
and now I'll get to show you some of those! Some you already
seen.... but I have yet to show you my Valentine's cards!
So this week will kick off my Valentine's cards!!! I know my
sister doesn't care for them or for any of the holidays really....
But I enjoy making them and I'm happy to share my cards
with all of you! Sooo..... let's get on with today's card!

Let me start by saying it's great to be the "BOSS"! WHY?
Because I can bring my Gypsy to work and create when
it's a slow day! And nobody can tell me ANYTHING!
Gotta LOVE that! LOL And that's basically how I created
ALL my Valentine's cards.... I have NOOOO Internet at work
so I can't check out blogs and stuff while I'm there... But having
my gypsy lets me design things and save them so when I do get home
and have a chance to create something I already have a design laid
out and I just gotta pick the papers/colors.... Which as I said before
seem to be the hardest part anyway! LOL soooo.... this card was created
while I was at work and when I got home I decided on some pretty
Valentines paper and BAM I made a card! How great is that?
Here's how I made it;

Card stock - Stampin' Up, Bo Bunny Double Dot
Designer Paper - Bo Bunny (Crazy Love)
Heart Border Punch - Stampin' Up
Embossing Folder - Provo Craft (De vine Swirls)
Stamp & Ink - Stampin' Up
Cartridges - George & Basic Shapes (Squares)
Cut @ 1" each
(Heart) Cut @ 1 1/2"
CTMH Art Philosophy (Banner)
Cut @ 3" x 1/2"

Well, that's all I have for you today! I hope you come back
on Wednesday to see my Cricut Cardz Challenge Card!
Can't wait to see you guys then! In the mean time....
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Theresa, did I hear/read you correctly --- you completed 16 sets cards??? Holey toledo!! It takes me that long to do one!!! LOL

Kate said...

Your post has me howling! I can't believe you stayed up so late!! When I was my own boss, my husband would laugh at me as I would say that it was "let the staff craft day" or "take the staff to lunch day". I was the only staff!!
Your card is wonderful! The combination of papers is fabulous!
