Happy Valentine's Day

The sun is out, the snow/ice/rain has stopped, the birds are gathering at the feeders - Happy Valentine's Day!  The snow in the backyard actually looks like a puffy quilt.  I'll have to try to take some pictures when I leave for work.  Work - yes, work today is actually an in-service program for the staff.  The secretaries are having a short one also and hopefully it will be productive and short.  It's one of those days that we can actually go out to lunch and that will be fun.

This is the card I made for HWNSNBP.  I found this LOVE flourish and cut it with my Cameo.  The stamp on the inside is an SU stamp called Flowerfull - I absolutely love hearts that are filled with designs.  I used markers to ink it up and with the aid of a stamp-a-ma-jig was able to line it up in the die-cut heart window.  

This past weekend was Marshmallow Day for me.  I made a batch each of cinnamon and vanilla and then portioned them out into these cello bags.  

I found a cute box pattern that was just the perfect size and cut a bunch of them out of all shades of red cardstock.  

The heart tag was stamped with an SU hostess set stamp and die cut with a scallop heart.  I actually glued a 3/4" circle of the same bag color onto the back of the tag so I could punch a hole and thread the ribbon through without encroaching on the design.   I sent these little gifties to the secretarial staff on Wednesday because of the impending storm and the possibility of not having school again today.

Lastly is a quick card I put together for my cousin in Maryland using some die cut hearts I had on my work table - she got some marshmallows also and I hope she gets them by today!

Happy Valentine's Day!
