Things to Do

Got a few things to do today, so will keep this short. Am in the "Valentines-for-the-grandkids" phase, and as time draws closer to the mailing deadline, I really do have to get a move on. Started with a couple for the big girls away in college. They're really young women now, but like all of our children, they're still considered (and always will be) kids. Wanted to share one that I really like. This one will go into several challenges too.

It fits the bill at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, as well as Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Two birds with one stone there. Thanks to Darnell whose blog I've read this morning, I learned that this will fit into Addicted to Stamps and More, and also Addicted to CAS. Her hamster has been working overtime, and you should drop in and pay her a visit.

So with no more chatter....




My favorite part is the snippet of dp. It's from a 6x6 pad of Dear Lizzy called Lucky Charm. Neenah white base, and the rest of the cardstock are scraps. An Avocado Arts stamp with some HA Shadow Ink, an MME stitched frame die, an ancient tiny heart punch, MB cloud dies, and some swirls of Wink of Stella on them. But it's that green dp that just trips my trigger. I love that here. And I am outie (so 80s!), got things to do, places to go, and people to meet. Happy dances everyone!!

I love the idea of tiny hearts cascading from the clouds like rain - a beautiful CAS design.

This is perfect for the "big" grand kids. A sweet reminder of how much they are loved! Love the green DP too!

Your grand-daughters will love this - not only because it's darling but because it's from you! Into every life showers of hearts filled with love 'should' fall (often), and you, Bev, are the 'perfect' grandma always letting those grand-kids know how special, precious and loved they are. Hope your day is as filled with much delight, in the same way you've added joy and sparkle to mine!
Hugs~c

It isn't raining rain you know, it's raining hearts of love. (I paraphrase but it seemed appropriate.) Darling Valentine.
