Cuddle up!

Hi, everyone!

Are you staying warm?  If you are in the midwest right now, this question will make sense to you!  We are getting a major arctic cold  wave and by Monday morning they are predicting wind chills of over 50 BELOW zero!  Tomorrow will be a balmy 25-35 below wind chill.  Our normal average temps for Iowa at this time of the year are supposed to be around 30 degrees above!  So, hunker down, gals!

I worked on some Valentine cards this afternoon.  I thought maybe I would get a head start on them.

This first card was done with an old Penny Black Stamp I've had a long time & still enjoy. Of course, because it is a cat, I find it hard to resist!   I added a border of red hearts made with Memory Box Heart Chain Border.  The beautiful hearts are from Cherry Lynn Designs Two of Hearts dies.  A little glitter and he was done.

This second card is also a Penny Black Stamp.  I adore hedgehogs! My daughter actually bought me a stuffed one that looks exactly like these two charmers & it sits on my cabinet upstairs.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but whenever I use this particular polka dot paper, it always photographs so brightly it almost looks like neon!  ha ha  Suffice it to say, it looks much better in real life!  The bottom edge was done with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One. The sentiment is from Craftsmart.

I'm guessing I will be staying inside the rest of the weekend (hopefully) and working on cards so I'm sure I will be back with something else tomorrow.

Stay warm!


  1. Cute! I love that heart border row. I may get busy tonight and try to start on a card.

  2. First of all -- thanks for the great big giant smile today! Love these cards. So dang cute and fun. What a cute border on the first one, and you know I love the "neon" polka dots on the second. The images are darling! Glad you get to stay home in the frigid weather. It's been sunny here -- sheesh!

  3. These are great Sherri, I love the kitty one.
