Showering You With Love

Can you believe it's almost Valentine's Day?!

I have a dreadful feeling that this year is going to go even faster than last year. OK, I realize it's only January 11th...but it seems like the older you get, the faster time flies. Maybe it's because as we get older we start to realize how many goals we have and how little time we have to achieve them. Especially once all of the normal everyday responsibilities start mounting. That being said. I've set one selfish goal this year. One hour. One hour a day to start chipping away at some of those lofty life goals.

We'll see how long that lasts. We happen to have a lot of occasions in February; Valentine's Day, 2 Anniversaries, our Anniversary, and 3 birthdays. I figured I better get started earlier this year if I actually want to keep my goal of sending out more cards. For this one, I decided to dig into my stash for a card that had never been posted to share.

For this card, I used Background Builders: Hearts and The Birds & The Bees. I stamped and panel with the hearts in pink and added my sentiment in brown and red.

For that little something "extra", I punched a few hearts from red cardstock, punched holes in the corner and hung them from the ribbon using DMC floss. Super simple, yet sweet.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are getting a head start on those Valentine's.

    I hope this year doesn't fly by. So much to accomplish and I can't imagine having my baby as a toddler. I have always heard, life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes. I hate how fast last year went. i would love to find a way to slow down time.
