Trust Me

 

It really has some stamping…..not much though. Just one little, bitty word. I made this in a jiffy for Sharon’s Stamp Simply Challenge. “This week’s challenge is to create a card with A MODERN EDGE to it – whatever YOU think is modern in the card making world today!!!” This is what I came up with – Hot pink, black, white, some minimal stamping and fuzzy ribbon.

Not much news tonight as it has been a whirlwind day and now I want to veg out and watch The Last Templar. I hope I can stay awake.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Children’s Valentines and too much trash!

More cards for those you love. I thought these images from Gina K. were just like the Valentines that kids like to send. I hope some adults I know will enjoy sending and receiving them! I used some non-traditional colors for these cards to spice things up.

On another note – I have been cleaning and tossing. It seems like we get more and more mail and it just piles up around the house. I have been paying bills on-line and get several bills electronically but that isn’t helping. It just keeps coming back. I filled up an entire trash bag this morning with old mail and stuff from the “junk” drawer. The sad thing is that it will all be back in a few days! At least my junk drawer isn’t so junky right now.

Last night at the Tavern was a lot of fun. It was good to see everyone away from school and meet spouses and significant others. After the gathering we stopped by Trader Joe’s.  …..always such a treat to see what’s new in the store.

Cupid’s Workshop

I signed up for Lisa Pace’s Cupid’s Workshop.

She has some fun ideas and so far I have made cards and started a bird project. I hope to have the bird finished by tomorrow so I can post it.

I have been busy making Valentine cards but just can’t seem to get around to taking pictures and posting them. The sun was shining so bright when I took these that there are some bad shadows…. but you get the idea anyway.

My school is having a party tonight at a local tavern, so I am off to get ready. It should be fun, but interesting. I am one of the few English speaking faculty members at my school so we will see how it goes with everyone else speaking Spanish. I am used to it and can understand some of what they are saying but it will be different for DH. After a few beers he probably won’t care 🙂

Back to the real world

 

What a day…I had to return to work today after having been off for three weeks. I am really, really tired. I have a feeling this will be a long week. I am anxious to get started on some Valentine cards but it is going to be Thursday before I can get into my stamping room.

It seems like I am always in need of sympathy cards. I know my friends really appreciate a handmade card and they always comment on how much it means to them to get one. I know a card cannot make things better but maybe it will help ease the pain a little. I sat down this past weekend and made several sympathy cards to replenish my card box and thought I would share them here.

 Thanks for stopping by today.
