Happiness Enclosed

Well it was cold enough today that I didn't go outside my office for lunch. Since I work on the eighth floor I walked all the floors and the stairs in the building to get exercise at lunch time. I would so much prefer to get out at lunch time to break the day up. But I had a 1pm meeting so that kind of cemented my thoughts of staying indoor today. Tomorrow will likely be worse but I will probably bundle up and venture out to the library. It's only two blocks away and I often head there if the weather is less than perfect. It gets me out of the office for just a bit.
I made a couple of today's cards; three to be exact. They are going to my two brother and one sister as Valentines.
I cased this very CAS card from Julie Ebersole at Paper Trufflez. The little envelope is made from a punch that one of my non-crafty friends gave me. I'm not sure where she got it but I thought it would be fun to use it for a change. The hearts I traced on different kinds of paper and then faux stitched around them. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp kit and I embossed it with black embossing powder. Easy peasy!
I am entering these challenges:
Tomorrow is supposed to be very cold. Below zero tonight and then chance of snow on Wednesday. I do sound like a broken record.  Maybe spring will surprise up very soon. We can only hope and pray. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

Oh Donna, rhis is one of those cards with a bitty image and sentiment that is so big on style. Definite defines the saying, "less is more"!
