Be my Valentine

 Happy Monday and goodbye to January (already!) I am sneaking this card in under the wire at The Outlawz for their progressive challenge. 

I will be sending this one to my grand daughter Valerie for Valentine's Day. The image is called Rainbow Girl from All Dressed Up. I colored her with a variety of markers and die cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Mosaic Triangle Edge Squares. The heart designer paper is from my stash, as is the fun red ribbon with the gold flowers, At the corners I punched a corner punch that left a pattern of holes like the triangle squares and then I added a die cut heart from MFT Blueprints 32. I am entering these challenges:
So it's been quite the day today. I volunteered this morning at Opportunity House. Rushed home to finish this card and just got it done before we had a meeting with our builder. We spent several hours with our builder and then went to see a house that he built that was just finished. The people will move in tomorrow. So that was fun! So I rushed home to get this post up before time ran out. Hope you had a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by! Peace and all good!

Warm my Heart

The prodigal daughter returns! This is my first card of 2022! It's been a rough (and exciting) start to the new year. My father-in-law had a medical emergency on January 2nd and needs 24/7 care right now. So we've been helping with his care. We had only 2 weeks at home in January and those have been working on getting things going on a new house that we are building this year. That's the exciting part! Ground-breaking should happen in April or May. We had a mobile home (trailer) on our property and we finally found someone who wanted it and could move it. So between getting it ready to move and moving it, it took a week or more. So it's been a busy time when we are home and a slow time when we are taking care of Tom's Dad. But we are making due with  what we have. We'll be heading back to Cincinnati at the end of the week. Today we had the twins. My youngest son is flying in from Boston on Tuesday (if he digs himself out of the snow they are getting there). After the twins went home I made this card!

The image and sentiment are from From the Heart Stamps set called Snowman and Cocoa. Unfortunately, the stamp company is no longer in business and I miss Faith. I really loved her images and sentiments. The snowflake strip behind the snowman is bulletin board border that I picked up from Teacher's Warehouse. The dotted paper is from my stash die cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 32. The sentiment is also cut from Blueprints 32 as is the heart. The snowflakes at the top were punched from silver glitter paper. To finish it off I added pearls and rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes. I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I have at least one more card I want to get done before the end of the month. So I hope to be back with another card. I hope the start to your year has been more relaxing. Wishing you peace and all good things.
