Because I love you.....

Happy Monday!

Well, I've decided to be positive about Monday, at least this week. :) I tell my boys that they get to be "the decider" - as in, when you get up in the morning, you decide if you are going to have a good day. If you feel a bit grumpy, sometimes you can just decide to be happy. We have this conversation quite a lot, especially with Pickle Pants (the younger) as he tends to get his "knickers in a twirl" about lots of things. Anyhoooo, as I type this it's Sunday night and I'm thinking I'll try to practice what I preach - Monday is going to be a good day! It's even better because I have a fun Valentine to share with you.

The best part of this is that I got to play with the new Making Memories "Je t'adore" papers I picked up a couple of weeks ago at DAT'S and I also pulled some fabric out of my stash to play with! And, and, I also got happy with my glimmer mist - three different colors! Can you hear my excitement! I love this stuff, but I'm still not so good at avoiding the splurbs as you will see on my project!
I must admit that this one took some playing around with and it doesn't look anything like what was originally in my head, but that's okay because it turned out better than what I had planned.
As you can see, I played with several stamp sets - some that had not yet seen ink - I am on a roll here girls!
I really had some fun with the inside of this one too.
My card is based on the sketch over at Get Sketchy this week and I would also like to enter in the following challenges:
Raise the Bar - Hearts
Crazy 4 Challenges - Valentines
I also wanted to share with you some big news.... my bloggy friend Steph is starting a new Challenge Blog! It's called For Your Inspiration - the first challenge will be on March 1st! She is even offering some candy if you are interested in spreading the word - check it out here. Steph is also recruiting a design team, so get over there and check it out, deadline is Feb. 15th.


Have a fantastic week!

Shanna :)
