Here are some Digi-Valentine's Cards I made for friends
using my new "Tweet Sweets" Digital Kit...
I will be offering a portion of this kit for free soon - so check back
and let me know what you think!
On a different note - we celebrated Valentine's Day last night as a family again!
We have a gorgeous 15 year old girl - who went to school in all black! LOL! She is (mostly) happily single and was surprised to find a LOT of kids featured in all black yesterday! We started including her (and other single friends) in our celebration when she was a preteen. We just felt it was very important to use the 'holiday' as a chance to let her know that while the day is all about celebrating Love - it doesn't have to be only a Romantic Love!
I took her to get a Manicure...
...and we also bought some roses for her and her friends 'from Jesus'...
Then last night, I set the table near our big picture window overlooking the city...
we make it fancy, get take out from our favorite restaurant,
take communion together, and just relax and enjoy the evening together!
It is really nice and I am SO glad that we started this when she was younger...
we didn't get all dressed up this year, thus the missing photo's of PEOPLE - LOL!
We had actually just got done with our P90X workout when Dave came home with dinner
- but the food was all dressed up and pretty!
Hope you all had a Great Day filled with all kinds of Love!

OK - I have been doing a bit of Hands On crafting... love to go back and forth from old school to digi! I found these ADORABLE little Heart Ornaments at JoAnns and remembered I had paper to match already - so my plan fell in place and I worked up these super cute
(if I DO say so myself) Valentine's Day cards & a Bookmark too...
What are YOU doing crafty for Valentine's Day? I miss the days of making cards & goodies for my daughters' classroom... now we have a teenager - a single teenager & I am reminded of how God told me years ago to let her know that Valentine's Day is about Love - all kinds... so we'll continue our family tradition of spending it together - loving each other & acknowledging the Lover of our souls! I also plan on sending a single rose to her & a handful of her close friends at school on Monday - with a card that says something like,
"So thankful you are Mine! Happy Valentine's Day! ~Jesus"
Her girlfriends are all single & are not looking forward to Valentine's Day this year - but I want them to remember that they are loved & have someone Who loves them more than they realize!
Scrap Happy - & share the Love, peeps!

So - here is a super cute new collaboration Kit by The Scrappy Kat and Mommy Me Time Scrapper over at Stuff to Scrap! This kit is so great - love the fun colors and glittery accents...
Sadly - since I am 'all caught up' - I had to 'borrow' these fun snow pictures from a friend! Thanks Amy for loaning me some snow - I know you have PLENTY to go around!
On the 10th (tomorrow) the kits will go on sale for $2 for a week - so check them out at:
C'mon... I know most of you HAVE to have snowy pictures to play with... grab this kit and let me know what you think!

I know I am among the minority of America who is NOT getting slammed by this crazy winter storm! Still - a cup of coffee and a little digi scrapping is calling my name - making me wish for a snow day (which is SO not like me!) but with the sun shining and my list of things to do way
longer than my notepad - I just don't have any crafting time today!
But I wanted to post this super cute new Build A Kit "Adore" by The Scrappy Kat that is now available in her Stuff To Scrap store. I am honored to now be part of her Creative Team and so I got to play with this kit a little earlier... here is my first layout:
I hope to post a couple more later this week!
Here is the link to The Scrappy Kat store at Stuff To Scrap... so you can purchase the kit and make your own super cute LOs - all in time for Valentine's Day!
OK - here is one more from todays Speed Scrap at Stuff to Scrap!
