Hello everyone. I promise this will be my last Valentine for the day. I want to share this new type of card that I made. This is called a '5 panel fancy fold card'.

I love how it looks like a shadow box in the middle. Thanks so much for looking. I hope everyone felt some love today.


Look at this amazing Valentine's Day card I got from my great friend Yolie from 'Just Yolie'. 

How beautiful is this creation? Isn't it beautiful to be loved and appreciated by friends? Thank you so much Yolie. I love it and you. Happy Valentine's Day my friend.


Good morning and happy Valentine's Day. I have an adorable card to show you right now and maybe some more surprises throughout the day. Look at this card I made my niece. She LOVES cows.

How cute huh and yummy. Now I want cookies for breakfast. Enjoy the day and come back soon for some more fun.

Hi again. I have another Valentine's Day Card to share with you. 

Thanks so much for looking. Come back tomorrow for some more Valentine's Day fun.


Hi folks. Those who follow me regularly know that this past Christmas I dropped the ball. Each year I usually make my neighbor holiday cookies and this year with being so busy at work, I never got around to it. I felt awful especially as my neighbors would come by one by one to drop off their yummy treats for me. UGH. Despite making them each a homemade thank you card, I made up my mind to do something special for them come Valentines. So this is what I came up with...

I altered a muffin box and made homemade apple/cinnamon muffins. I added a few drops of food coloring to make them pink and added a candy heart in the middle of each one. 

I delivered them yesterday after church and they loved them. What a great idea for someone who does not like chocolate. Thanks so much for looking. Come back tomorrow for another cute Valentine project.

Good morning. We are bracing for another snow storm here in New England so I thought I would post another project early before I get called for shoveling duty. Here is a Valentine that I made for a special Uncle. I just love it and I know he will too.

Good morning everyone. I want to share the Valentine I made for my Mother.

This was my first attempt at this type of card. I was super surprised at how easy it was and how great it looks. It will definitely be something I do again in the future. Thanks so much for looking. Come back tomorrow for another great Valentine project.

Yes, I am one of 'those' people. I am one of those people who celebrates the day that I went on my first date ever with my honey (who is now my husband). I have always thought people who celebrate their first date with their significant other was silly. But now I realize I celebrate it because it was the day that changed my life forever. I can honestly say that I am a much better person because of that day. I have never been this happy because of that date. That is why I celebrate.
So here is the card I made for him.
Here is the card front.
This is what the card looks like when open.
This is what it looks like when put into place. Thanks so much to Little Scraps of Heaven Designs for the pattern and thank you for looking.

Blizzard greetings from New England. I just shoveled my driveway for two minutes just so my husband could get his vehicle in our driveway and it is snowing like crazy. Eek. Be safe everyone. I just wanted to quickly post a project just in case we lose power. Look at this adorable card I made for my niece.
She gave me her sewing machine that has far more stitching options than my current machine. How sweet of her huh? So I made this card to 'thank' her as well as get some practice. I did three different stitches on the front of this easel card.
This is the inside of the card that features three more stitches. Clearly, I need more practice.
Here is the card when put in place. So cute. Thank you again for the use of your amazing machine :)

How adorable is this layout? I wish the beautiful foil paper showed up better in these photos.

 I love, love, love this pattern. Just look at how chubby this polar bear is. I love the buckets of carrots and sticks too. Even the blankets looks so soft and comfy. Haha. I can't wait to print out some adorable snowman pictures to put in this layout. Thank so much for looking. Come back tomorrow for an adorable SUPER BOWL project.

Happiest birthday wishes to my great friend Lois. I made this 'diamond fold' card using two different LSHD patterns. The three elements, present, hat and balloon were from 'birthday hippo' pattern set. The bases that they sit on are from the 'christmas 3D accents' pattern set.

Thanks so much for looking. If you see Lois Cross today, wish her a happy one. If it is your birthday, celebrate BIG,
