An Early Valentine!

Congratulations to Benzi (Bev) the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast! I had fun checking out her lovely gallery.

We were kind of snowed in on Sunday and I was supposed to be cleaning up the house for Christmas - but I just had to make a card (of course!) It's pretty CAS but took me about 4 tries to get it to where it is (!?!) (some cards are just like that - aren't they?!)

I cased her candy cane Christmas card but made it a Valentine instead. I'm ready to move on from Christmas cards! I changed the embossing folder and used a heart instead of a candy cane.The sentiment and scrolly I stamped behind the sentiment in Versamark are from the Seasons of Love set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Hope you are enjoying the last days until we celebrate Jesus birth and that you aren't too crazy busy! I'm cleaned and baked - now I just have to wrap a couple of things and I can relax and enjoy! AHHHHHH......... what a good feeling! AND we have snow! Perfecto!!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Seasons of Love
Paper: White, Pure Poppy - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories: Heart nestabilities, Leafy Branch Cuttlebug folder, foam dimensionals

Julia,
It's beautiful!! I do know what you mean about some cards though . . . I'm not usually patient enough to see them through!

Enjoy, dear friend! Sounds like you're in a great position for a blessed Christmas!
