Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #41 - Valentines

It's Sunday and that means it is time for the new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week we want to see your Valentine themed creations. Don't forget the sentiment!

I decided to use one of the gorgeous sentiments from Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs. I love cards that focus on the sentiment. I paired it up with some of my all time favorite papers from October Afternoon and layered on some lace and fibers.

Please stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see what the rest of the team has created. While you are there, check out the freebie that Ann has provided this week.

Thank you for stopping by!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
