Beautiful Ladies

On one of the Stampin' Up! pages I belong to,  Michelle Carter posted some of the cards she made using this stamp set and the paper piecing technique.  I remembered that I had made some using the technique too and hoped that I took pictures.  I like the black and red together.  This paper has been retired for awhile now and I am down to very small pieces so there won't be many more like this.  Some of the sisters will be getting a different color than the others.  Oh and don't worry about them seeing the card before they get it.  None of them look at the blog anymore.

Happy Anniversary

These crazy birds, and the dogs and cats too, are so cute.  I like using all the accessories to fit what ever the occasion is that you need to celebrate.  Here we have the male bird presenting his female friend a bouquet of flowers.  I wonder if he got them the day after Valentine's and got them at a good price.  One year my DH bought me and his mom each a dozen roses the day after.  He paid $1 a dozen.  Yes you are reading that right.  I didn't make a typo.

Happy Valentine's Day

Jim and I have never made a big deal about valentine's day.  Roses are so overpriced and we really don't need to be eating candy.  We also don't like to eat out on the 14th either because every place is so crowded.  One year I got two dozen red roses the day after.  Our local grocery store had so many left that they reduced the price to $1 a dozen.  He couldn't pass that up.

Non-traditional Valentine Colors

Valentine's Day has slipped up on me.  Normally I would have posted a few valentines before this.  So to make up for it, I took a picture of two cards together.  I will try to remember to post another one tomorrow.

Chicken Soup

I know two people who have had surgery on their arms during the past few weeks. I have heard it is painful surgery. Hope they are feeling better or at least the drugs are keeping the pain away. I got the idea for this card from splitcoaststamper and cgarskejones.

Groundhog Day

Today is groundhog day. From what I have seen on facebook, I guess the groundhog saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter. Where I live winter isn't so bad and I don't think it has been too bad in the north this year. Of course when you don't live there you don't really know how bad it has been so feel free to let me know if the weather has been bad. Sending sunshine to anyone that needs it.
