It's In The Air

Yep, it's Valentine's Day again which means cards, candy and dinner out. My in-laws have this wonderful tradition of giving each other the same cards every year, adding the year and maybe a little note of love.

For me, I like to make my honey his Valentine's card. It's relaxing for me to have to worry about finding just the right card and I can really poor my heart in to the design.

This year, I made a couple extra cards just for the fun of it. I'm one of those people that once I get started, I just can't stop. And these were so easy to make - it took only ten minutes to complete both of them.

The only supplies needed were the blank cards, striped card stock cut to size, die cuts, one sticker and a adhesive. If you are really stumped and want a simple and quick card with that hand made feel, you can't go wrong with these!

Did you ever feel like...

... the universe is conspiring against you? Last week I had so many things to get done and was side tracked by several different, unexpected situations that came up. 

First, my darling hubby got an unexpected day off, which meant we could finally go get the pantries we have been wanting for our kitchen. So that day was filled quick emptying of cabinets, pulling out old cabinets, installing new, and filling them! The kitchen is slowly coming together, but there is still a lot of work to be done.

After that, I got to spend the rest of week sick. I had no energy and no motivation to do anything! I am feeling much better this week but I am getting tired of not being able to accomplish the projects I want to get done. This week is starting out better, considering I feel so much better. But it will be a short work week for me considering Friday morning I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled and have no intention of doing anything after that...

So, I am going to close this entry, grab my camera and get some much needed pictures so I can show off some of the work I have gotten finished...

Happy Monday everyone!
