Remember What is Most Important....
It's not having everything go right,
it's facing whatever goes wrong.
It's not being without fear,
it's having the determinationto go on in spite of it.
Remember that every day ends
and brings a new tomorrow
full of exciting new things.
Love what you do,
do the best you can,
and always remember
how much you are loved.

There's a gorgeous card, a pack of DP, two sheets of stickers with expressions and one sheet of gold Happy Birthdays. Then there's a whole bunch of images she stamped for me!! Cute little teddy bears, bunnies, little girls with pudgy cheeks, a flower and Hedgie!!! My first ones ever!!! He's sooooo cute!!!! I got close ups........
The teddy is so cute!! And I forgot about the little guy in the pumpkin!!
What a gorgeous card!! I love all the layering!!
And the flower is such a nice touch, just the right size, not too much, not too little.
It looks very vintage, like 1920's maybe - or something ike that. Wow!!
The coloring is ewxquisite!! Wow! If I ever get this good, well, I'll be very happy to say the least!! She is just beautiful!
Thank you so very, very much Nikki!! You have been incredibly generous!!!
Look at how precise the coloring is - so pretty!! I wish I had the patience for this!! I just love tulips!! They are one of my favorite flowers!! Tulips, Daffodils, and Violets - I love them!!
Look at the leaves on this image! Wow!! And the blue background behind them filled in so perfectly! I could never do that!
And here is a close up of the adorable stamp she sent me! I can hardly wait to use it!
I came across a challenge out in blog-land (over at Pooka's Crayon) that suggested we try to update the Valentine. Remember the silly little Valentine's we gave out as kids? You know, the cheap little ones we still buy for our kids because they come 24 to a box for about 99 cents. They have cartoon people on one side and say To: / From: on the other side. You fold them in half so they almost disappear, then pass them out to your classmates.
Well, the challenge was to remake these little bitties. They had to be one-sided, no larger that 3.5" x 5'', say To/From on the back, have at least one stamp and two embellishments. I thought - "What a great idea for my small group of sixth grade girls in youth group!" So, I made 14 (ran short a few and need to make more tomorrow! Ack!) and here they are! My embellishments are mostly ribbon and stickers, but occasionally there's a rub on also. ;)
How sweet is this?? House Mouse leaning on his Teddy!!! I love it!! This is my secopnd House Mouse card and he is just too cute for words!!! And the paper he is matted on is just gorgeous!! I'm going to take this card to Archiver's so I can try to find this kind of paper!! I love it!! It's shimmery without being overbearing, and textured too. Soooo cool!!
