A Week of Valentines

Hello everyone...hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! We finally got some rain...yeaaaa!!! It's been really dry here so we were glad to see all that wet stuff!!! It won't be so nice in the morning, however, because it is supposed to be below freezing and if it rains we will have ice...yikes!!! I'm glad I don't have to go anywhere!! The plants are all in the house (it looks like a jungle here!!), the fire is going, and the craft room is waiting...can't get any better than that!! My sister and her hubby are here (staying at my Mother's) till Tuesday...hope the weather is ok for their flight home. We went to the best concert Saturday night...we saw Ruthie Foster and boy was she FABULOUS!!! She has the most beautiful voice...a true gift...and the drummer and base guitarist were AWESOME!!!!! Anyway....

I have been working on Valentines for my family and I will be sharing them with you all week. My first Valentine this week features paper and a sticker from Echo Park's Be Mine collection. I also used a lace frame from K&Co., a Martha Stewart Punched heart, Hero Arts heart pearls, and some yummy wrinkled seam binding.
Recipe:
Papers: Echo Park's Be Mine dp and sticker, White, Basic Grey
Accessories: Martha Stewart Heart Punch, Lace Frame, Heart Pearls, Heart Button, Twine, Wrinkled Seam Binding, Lace, Sewing Machine


Thanks for visiting tonight.....stay warm and cozy and I will have more Valentines tomorrow night!!!

What a stunning card, love everything about it, the frame and the stitching with the pearls to the sentiment. We got snow yesterday and everything is frozen this morning. UGH where is spring? Well, guess that is one good thing about TX, this coming weekend it will be near 60.

Gorgeous card, Joan, so feminine and pretty, someone will be so happy to receive this. Sounds very cosy in your home, nice to make the place warm and inviting when it's so cold outside.....we have had a lot of practice at that recently! Keep warm. CoB
