Hi, there!

I hope things are going well in your world!  I have more Valentine cards made and am getting ready to send them out soon.  I made this one for my sis who loves the color purple.  The flowers are from Simon Says and the envelope is from Paper Sweeties.  The scallop frame is from PTI.  Distress inks were used for the background.  And, the images were colored with copics.

Next up,  I used the same stamp set from Simon Says and had fun coloring all the flowers...

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  

Well, we are once again in a warm and toasty home with a new furnace!  I mean we weren't freezing or anything since we had the furnace working some along with electric heaters.  But, it is a great relief to have it all done.  Not a lot going on here.  I've been doing some cleaning and I try to get crafting done in between chasing the animals, lol!  The cat has gotten very close to hubby.  He sits with him while he's on the computer and loves to be held.  

Here's Nicky in my hubby's lap.  He can be a real cutie when he wants to be!:-)

Well, you know I can't leave Sheila out, so here are the two behaving for a sweet photo!

Ok, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Have a wonderful day and take care!



  1. FUn valentines, and I love the color purple on the first one, but those red flowers are gorgeous too! Glad you're all cozy and warm again and the furry sweeties look comfy cozy too! Have a great warm weekend!

  2. What beautiful cards and great to see the same flower stamp used and coloured totally different x. Thanks for sharing the super cute photos of Sheila and Nicky and so glad you are all super toasty again x.

  3. I thought of you the other day and hoped your furnace was installed for the cold weather we are having. I'm glad to hear it's all done and you are warm and cozy. That is a versatile stamp and both cards are wonderful and so different from each other. Nicky is so cute and it's good they both get along. Nicky and Sheila, not Nicky and hubby, although that's good too!

  4. Oh, my gosh, your Valentines are so pretty, Maria, but you know it's the critters who have stolen the show today! I would have a cat like that - you know, one who thinks she's a dog, lol. I love how she and sweet Sheila get along. Phew to getting a new furnace, especially with the frigid temps you've been having! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  5. What beautiful cards Maria, love the colouring on each so different cards. AW! your fur babies are so cute and lovely. Good to hear your furnace is up and working too.
