happy valentine's day to you!

hey there momma, tracey, friends old and new!

i got to play a bit in the lady cave this weekend...just thought i'd share what i made.  they are for a 'secret sister' i am swapping with during the whole year.  i hope she doesn't know of my little ol blog...or there is no surprise!  fingers crossed!

the flowers were stamped on the SU! white shimmer new addiction!  i used stazon ink and my aqua painter filled with alcohol instead of water.  i prefer using the dries much faster.  and when you are fussy cutting, staying in the lines is not an issue!  i love pairing bright colors with navy blue...always a winning combination!!

again...a bit of fussy cutting, i know, but not a problem when you're watching Gilmore Girls and eating M&Ms!!  this card is much cleaner than i am known for creating, and i love it!

tomorrow is valentine's day.  everyone who knows me knows i love love.  but the funny thing is, i'm not a huge fan of the day.  i really think there is too much pressure to make something special out of an idea i would like to see happen every day.

i'm not a party pooper.

i just love the little bits of love i receive when it's not expected...when my husband calls me in the middle of the day just to tell me how beautiful i am or how proud of me he is.  or how about my son buying me 44 oz of diet pepsi from wawa first thing in the morning, when he knows i crave it most (remember, this is a judgement-free zone!).  love is when my daughter sends me a text that she wishes i was there, in texas, sharing some margaritas!

h. jackson brown, jr., a well known american author once wrote words to live by..."love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own."  wow. so. simple.

i'd like to think i love in that way...

thank you for stopping by today,
i appreciate you.

until next time,
peace be with you.
