Hope you had a happy Valentine's Day. When I was little, I think Valentine's Day was one of my favorite holidays. I loved to make the Valentine boxes for school and then hope whom ever I had a secret crush on would put a special Valentine in the box on my desk. But today Valentine's Day makes me a little sad because my son and daughter are not close enough for me to give them a big fat Valentine hug. Sonny bought me a really sweet card and I made him one. We decided not to go out to dinner and fight the crowds. Instead, we used a Groupon that we had for a meat store in Mooresville and bought a Porterhouse steak. Sonny grilled it outside and I made scalloped potatoes, salad, and mushrooms to go with the steak. It was yummy!!
I made Valentine sucker holders last weekend to send to my grandchildren. Since I had to buy a whole bag of heart suckers, I decided to make enough for my bridge group. I used the Scallop Envelope die to make them. I just love that die - it is so versatile!
I am finally going to be teaching the MDS class this weekend in Kernersville to my NC demo friends. I was scheduled to do it a few weeks ago when the weather did not cooperate. Friday is supposed to be ok but the cold weather is moving in on Saturday. It is supposed to be a high of 60 Friday and 42 on Saturday and Sunday!! Crazy but it is February!! We are doing a card swap in the afternoon after my class. The card I made for the swap was a Valentine's card but now I have changed it to an anniversary card!
I stamped Happy Anniversary and punched it out with the Label Punch and just glued it over the Happy Valentine's Day tag! I love this two tone ribbon from the Spring Mini - it is great for making bows! I like the mix of Pink Pirouette and Raspberry Ripple.
