Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Winter holidays in the United States are something we look forward to in our home. The temperatures are too cold to bear outdoors so we make our own happy days warm inside. Valentine’s Day is one of the cold month holidays for us and we always make cards and treats to share. Today’s card reflects the whimsical spirit in which we celebrate.

Celebrate You Thinlits
The knock out hit in the Sale-a-bration catalog this year are the Celebrate You Thinlits. I love these word dies and am having a great time working with them. In designing this project, I opted for pairing the flying pig from This Little Piggy with the large word die “amazing”, being as it’s amazing to see a flying pig! I chose the piggy for it’s cute little kisses stamp and so now the happy watercolored pig is happy from kisses.
Sweet & Sassy Hearts Framelits
Integrating different hobbies into one another is like my favorite kind of project. Stacking a few die cut hearts and securing them with my sewing machine have a unique look that is both fun and practical. Stampin Up’s Silver Metallic Thread works really with my sewing machine too!
