Doodlebug Valentine

IMG_9594


Another Valentine card, sometimes it is fun to make a card just using patterned paper. I don't use patterned paper that often and when I do in small doses but I see it and I have to get it. I guess I am a hoarder, anyone else--lol? So I made a conscious effort to make a card with Doodlebug's 6 x x6 Sweet Things paper. The sheet with the sentiment using words from John Legend's All of Me just said 'use me'. I have a couple treats to get together for Valentine's day on Saturday, but just one more for this year.

Reading week this week for my kids. We picked up Brooklyn yesterday from school, blizzard and all, and Ben is coming home today. Normally they would drive home together, but she finished on Thursday and Ben had presentations Friday night and wouldn't be coming home until Saturday. Since she was sick most of the week and still is, we went and got her. We ended up with another foot of snow on top of the foot we already had. We are certainly getting our share of snow here, growing up and living near Lake Ontario we didn't usually have as much snow. Here in Muskoka it is pretty normal, Sometimes I feel like we are living in a snow globe.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Love the sweet Valentine's card, Tracey. Perfect colors in my world!! Hoping I don't jinx it here, we've had a light snow winter. I don't mind the cold, even the really, really cold, but all that snow makes it so hard to get around! Hope your daughter feels better, and that life in your snowglobe is warm and wonderful. Happy Valentine's Day. Bev

Your card is so CUTE! I love Doodlebug paper and your border is perfect for your card! Glad your having some wonderful family time! You've had lots of snow and glad you're now back home safe and sound! We don't have the snow, but we have frigid temps here. I'm anxious for spring!:-)

I don't know about you, but I would like someone to stop shaking my snow globe — and take it out of the deep freeze! This is a terrific valentine! So cool that it's all patterned paper.

I hoard patterned papers too, and only use it in small does...I have to say your chose a really perfect piece, Tracey! Beautiful color combo and design, and I love that it's a line from this song!

Enjoy having both kids home this week...a little bit of TLC from mom, and I think Brooklyn will be feeling better quickly :)

Oh I LOVE the addition of the patterned paper at the bottom. It is PERFECT with that fabulous stamping.

And did you say HOARD? I cannot tell you how much paper I have. I think my craft room is a fire hazard!!
