Happy weekend dear bloggers and let's hope we are not all snowed in. My brother on the west coast of Florida had snow this past week. Baby it's cold outside all over. Take care and enjoy.

Woke up to a shoveling job of about 3 inches and it was clear all day but it's started up again. When in the blankety blank is this winter going to hurry up and get over? Happy week peeps.

Well the weekend is upon us and all of you that have a fella or a gal can hopefully have a very lovely time on Sunday when good old cupid flies in and sends an arrow into your buttinsky to remind you it's Valentine's Day. So take some thyme and add a bit of spice to your life with the one you love. I'm wishing you all a Happy Heart's Day in advance. I will cry in my beer alone but not to worry as my tears will probably be due to some sappy movie on Lifetime Network... and boy do they ever have some sappy movies. Happy Valentine's Day to all.

I have received 1356 Valentines for the kids. WOW that is amazing and so apprecitated. Thanks to all that have taken part in this drive. You should feel really proud and blessed for what you have done to make a child's Valentine's Day a fun one, filled with beautiful hand-crafted cards.
I am waiting for today's mail because some have done express over night and God bless one awesome lady who spent $37 to get these cards to me on time. You know who you are and so do I. I will make my drawing for the blog candy in the early evening and post the name of the winner. It will be done with random draw so it is whatever the random number pick says. But I say I love you all for taking part in this wonderful project and if I could I would see that all of you got a prize but that's a big order . Take care and stop back tonight to see who the winner is.

This challenge, the last of the night is thanks to Miss Maki Jones. Her challenge was to use one of our favorite Flourishes sets. That's a hard one...I don't mean hard to stamp but rather hard to choose! I find all of the Flourishes sets are very high class and make up into beautiful cards.
I'm one of Maki's sample makers, so be sure to head on over to THIS post to read up on her challenge and how to play!
I picked out Flourishes Sweet Pea set. I think they are so delicate and sweet as the name implies. I used my water colored pencils and just stamped and colored and used my Nestie's label # 3 for my mat. I love pink cards so I chose some sweet polka dotted pink sparkly paper from Mike's and some Bazzil pinkini card stock. My ribbon ( also from Mike's...I know I'm such a traitor) is an iridescent white pearlized ...did I use the word pearl..I did so I will put pearls in each corner to finish off my blingers. My phrase comes once again from Taglines set. And there you have it good people.
Once again it's a Happy Birthday to Timeless Tuesday! Check out THIS post for all the fun, games and chances to win free stamps! Hip hip hurrah!
The Timeless Tuesday fun continues and... this time, it's Kimberly Crawford who is asking us to use a frame on our card. This is coming from Kimberly...hope "I'm" not being framed..what do you think, is this legit?Well I will go with the challenge and do a frame job.
I'm one of the sample makers for Kim's challenge. You can take a trip HERE to see the official challenge and get all the details.
I love the parrot tulip in this wonderful set called Thank You by Flourishes. You know tulips are like people, they really are, and you might ask why? Well they do come in lots of colors just like we do. I chose to color mine in yellowish orange tones. I'm using the delightful Basic Gray Lemonade paper as it's so cheerful and spring like as are tulips.My frame job is using my Spellbinder's oval Nesties. Soft green satin type ribbon and matching bling to make a sophisticated statement. I added the phrase from Flouishes new set of phrases Taglines, that says just about anything you want it to say...well almost anything.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FLOURISHES Timeless Tuesday Challenges!
Gosh 1 year old, I sure can't remember how that feels and at my age I can't even remember how it felt to be, well let's say 20yrs. old. What a great team these ladies are with talent up the wahzoo. Starting at the stroke of midnight, these ladies kicked off a handful of challenges to honor their special day. And, I'm helping them with the fun by making a sample or two or three!
First up in the talent department is Miss Cindy Haffner who is offering up a sketch challenge - the keyword is FTTC52A.
Here's a peek at the sketch. You can click HERE to visit Cindy's challenge post and find out how to play!

Following her wonderful pattern I used my new sweet Angelic Love Set. Hope that little angel sends down a sweet old codger to give me a sweet hug. For my card I just stamped and used my water colored pencils, my Nestie circles both the regular and the scalloped. I added some bling here and there and for my phrase I attached it to one of my new Fancy Tags. Red and black...great color combo for heart day.
