Happy Valentine's Day!



Happy Blessed Valentine's Day to you all!   I hope today brings you wonders and love and lots of hugs :)  My dh and I have been through so much in the past 6 months, so much that has  flown at us directly from all sides but our faith, and our love, still remain grounded and firm and strong.  He surprised me with some beautiful  charms for my Pandora bracelet after we specifically said no exchanges this year - silly man!  Today launches another busy start to the week -  In a few hours, I will be starting the zoom zooming around to Valentine's parties for the kids, delivering baked goods and cheering on the Kindergarteners at a Spelling Bee :)

And Monday's mean a brand new Happy Monday Challenge at Deedee's Digis!  You can find the challenge blog here and we'd LOVE for you to play along!  This week's theme is Buttons as embellies.  I LOVE me some buttons!!  They are my absolute favorite embellishment and I have literally jars full of buttons in all shapes, colors and sizes.   I'm a very tactile person and love the feel of them, moving them around on my cards and pages {and why I'd never be a very good digiscrapper!}

For today's challenge, I made a recipe card :)   I couldn't wait to use this lucious new SU! paper called Springtime Vintage paired with Deedee's Digi from the Lovin' from my oven digi set.  I won these sweet little vintage 6 x 6 DSP squares in Diane's Blog candy - thank you!!  The little friendship recipe is one I found at a christian site (alas, without an author, but I'm blessed you shared it with us!)  and of course I blinged it out with some of my buttons from my stash - I was happy as a clam making this recipe card! :) 



and ....... some exciting news! **  Deedee has a brand new store!!  **  Come check it out, meet the new DT that have joined us, and be sure to check out the Crafty Challenge blog with your Button themed submissions this week!

LOVE you all!
