I am thrilled to welcome a new follower to my blog this morning. She is Jenny Lawrence and I hope you can stop in and say hello. Her blog is http://cardsarus.blogspot.com/ and she is in the UK. Welcome, Jenny. I'm so glad you came by.

All is right in my computer world. I had to restart for the update and now computer knows who I am! I called the pulmonary rehab unit at the hospital and hope to start classes soon to improve my breathing. Now I can concentrate on the important things in my life, family and cards!

This is another Valentine I made for my son and his wife. It is a Stampin Up heart die and I have to say, they loved it. That always makes me feel so good. I just embossed a greeting on a strip of white card stock and added a few heart sequins. I did die cut a few extra red flowers and added them to give a little dimension. Be kind to one another.

You can skip to the next paragraph because this had nothing to do with cards. Day before yesterday my new printer came on by itself and did an update. It took my computer offline and there was no choice of internet to pick. No WiFi, no nothing. Technophobe that I am, I called Comcast. They were extremely nice and said they could have someone out here this morning between 8 and 10. I am not an 8 am person but I set the alarm and got ready. Comast called at 9:26 and said my guy was here. I knew he was because he had been sitting in his truck for 5 minutes. Another 20 minutes went by and I went to put in laundry. The phone rang and Comcast said they were sorry they missed me and my visit was over. WHAT? He was gone and never knocked or rang the bell. I had the front door open. Needless to say I called right away and an hour later he came back. Said no, he didn't think I was home so didn't get out the of truck. He did get this computer up and running, and put my other computer, printer and tv on the same network. I just went to log on the other computer and it does not recognize my password. Nerve pill or alcohol, which one! I'm afraid to log off this one.

I still have Valentines to show you and this is one we made in the Stampin Up class. Used those big SU letters and popped them up on foam tape. Be kind to one another.

Happy Valentine's Day. I am showing you the card I made for my granddaughter who is crazy about llamas. When you ask what she would like for her birthday or Christmas she would always say a llama. When I saw this from Crate Paper I knew I had to get it! She loved it and I'm so happy I saw it. Have a wonderful day with your loved ones. Be kind to one another.

I spent time yesterday and today watching the first season of Little Big Lies. Oh my, what a series that is. It is hard to watch but very true and not talked about. I do see why it won so many awards.

This is another simple little Valentine. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder of hearts and added a die cut red heart and a little embellishment. White embossed a sentiment on a black strip of card stock and added a ribbon. Be kind to one another.

We didn't get the freezing rain yesterday but we did overnight. Poor Molly had a hard time when she went out this morning. Sliding all over the patio. I have salted it since the temps will be cold all day so it won't melt. I worked on my cards all day yesterday for the 

I have been looking forward to this all of January so I could play again. I see I am not the only one who thought shamrock when I saw the "hearts" word. I don't make many St. Patrick Day cards, just for the family, but I wanted to do this one. I used the smallest Heart die from Kat Scrappiness to make the petals. They are enclosed by a Die-Namics called Linked chain circle frames. The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes from SU. I added a few green sequins from my stash. My second card is a birthday card using colored vellum from We R Memory Keepers pack and cut with the same heart die to use as balloons. The cat is Tim Holtz and the frame is Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frames. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn. Be kind to one another.

Very cold wind now and freezing rain expected today so I'm in to craft. Darnell's second challenge starts today with hearts so I can't wait to get started.

This is one of my favorite pun cards I've made. It is for my youngest granddaughter (who just started driving Tuesday).  I made a pop tart using a Spellbinders die that I think is called deckle edge. I iced it with texture paste and while still wet I sprinkled on pink, gold and white frantage for sugar. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and the speech bubble is Lawn Fawn. The pattern paper is Stampin Up. I added some pink sequins with Nuvo gold drops in the center. Be kind to one another.

I feel like I may have turned the corner as far as feeling better. I know it is from all the well wishes you have sent me. Today I was able to get out a bit and I do feel better. I was so out of it Tuesday I forgot to color the cat bed on my card so I am posting that today. Duh.

I'm slow but I am making my cards. This is the first of the punny ones. This is for my youngest grandson and he is not fancy plus my cards are simple this year. I used a piece of flat silver and cut out a circle for the plate. The pizza and sentiment are Simon Says Foodie Friends set. I colored with Copics and added Enamel accents for the eyes. Be kind to one another.
