You Bless My Life

Good Monday morning, everybody! It's still my 'weekend' and so I am in a good mood :).

On Valentine's Day, I mentioned here that I will be working. There's still a chance that I'd get the day off-- but to make working a holiday much more fun, I recommended having a pot-luck to my co-workers. I volunteered to decorate the break room with these homemade cards I made, copied & enlarged years ago. I'll make sure to take pics on Sunday!

I also suggested exchanging those cute V-day cards you buy at the store. You know.. the ones you gave out in elementary school or even junior high? Except mine will be homemade. Pictured above is one of them. Not your typical hearts & cupid card but you know me... sometimes I like to challenge the rules! And I must be channeling the Monday Mania challenge at Club Anya. The goal is not to use red or pink on a V-day card. Too bad I used a stamp that didn't qualify.

I knew I'd use this Wendy stamp from TGF's Peter Pan set. I also wanted to use the sentiment (sticker) and tree PP (bothfrom Cosmo Cricket). The notes PP is Love, Elsie. The polka-dotted flower is Prima and the LOVE one is Heidi Grace designs.

<---------Some random stuff--------->

Anyway, looking at how much my stamping hobby has grown, I realize that I must go on a stamping diet! And what I mean by diet is less shopping for new stamps and papers!! I certainly could and should use a stamp more than a couple of times for my cards, don't ya think?? *sighs* But the new releases at TGF and All That Scraps always call my name!! They are all sooooo cute!! Good thing I still have some funds left over from my gift certificates! And then of course, I see some new Anime-inspired ones from Lysa. LOVE!!!

Which brings me to my next of my goals this year is to become Copic certified. So I am sooo excited that a certification class may be coming in July! Yipppeeeee!!!

Oh, and I wanted to share with you my new current TV obsession! While I'm waiting for Glee to come back on in April, I love watching My Life as Liz. Totally a revenge of the nerds sort of thing. I almost always root for the underdogs! And Liz is so cute and nerdy and loveable and cool and unique!

Okay, see you manana! *hugs*

Your card is just darling! In college, my sorority use to do that for Vday. We'd all make our holders, like in gradeschool, lol, and then we'd all put our valentines in there.

Love your 'grown up' Valentine, Rinne! It sounds like you have an awesome V-day set up at work, I thinking everyone is going to want to work the day! :)
