You make my heart Snuggly! :)

Hi friends!  Wow, another Valentine's card! I think this is a record for me! :)  But truthfully it's such a sweet and wonderful day to share with friends, family, loved ones - how can we not make cute cards!   I just loved when the girls were little, and now my son, came home with their home-made shoe-boxes filled with their little Valentines!  I just smile when I see all the hand-written "I <3 U" cards from Barbie to Scooby-Doo!  Cuteness!!  My son has to make his shoe-box this weekend and I'm secretly sooo excited to help him put his candied foam hearts, etc :)  {photo to follow soon!} 

This cute lil bear is another Elzybells original stamp, remade by way of Penny Black and I can see this colored in sooo many ways, so many colors!  The inside sentiment is from High Hopes, I think!  It was a random sentiment inside my Elzybells images bag.  Pretty simple overall - following a design on a card I made in my old Inktegrity DT days!  The sentiment is stamped in Real Red and it says "Valentine - you make my heart all snuggly" :)






I'm excited to share that I've been writing up a storm!  I actually finished 2 chapters completely, having gone back over then again and again and making a few corrections ;)  It's definitely a labor of LOVE, the theme of the month!  It will take a long time but it's truly bringing me unimaginable joy to pick up the pen again after such a hiatus, 25 years to be exact!  Never to late to follow a dream - and I'm ever blessed by Him for the courage to try anyway :) 

Thanks for stopping by :)
Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  3. It is never too late to follow your dream and if that dream turns out not quite what you expect c'est la vie!
    What a sweet card you have created. Valentines Day is not a big deal here in Australia even though the retailers keep trying to make it so!
