Be Mine!

A fun sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Hi Friends!

I thank so many of you who gave well wishes and prayers for my mother-in-law.  She is on the road to recovery and is still in the hospital.  But, she is doing better with each new day!  Thank you!

I hope you are keeping warm in your part of the world!  It is 19 degrees here in NW Ohio...brrrr.  And, we are due for some more snow.  We had a little bit yesterday with a touch of ice.  I had to scrape my windows after getting out of work yesterday.  Isn't winter fun?!:-) But, we really have been lucky with a fairly mild winter so far in my neck of the woods. 

Ok, now on to my card.  I couldn't wait to color up this little beauty.  Isn't she a little cutie?!  I had fun using doily dies, twine, and gems for this lovey dovey card!  Red and pink are some of my favorite colors and I  can't wait to make more valentine cards.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Take care and have a wonderful weekend, hugs!!:-))
