All Things Grow With Love

Valentines Day is one of my very favorite holidays.  A whole day dedicated to letting those special people in your life know just how much you love them.  A day filled with chocolates, sweet cards, hugs, kisses, love and flowers.  Who could not look forward to a day like this.   
After putting away the Christmas decorations this year, I found that things were looking just a bit to plain at my house.  I decided to take some time to create some new Valentine decorations.  I am usually creating for others or for my etsy shop and I must admit that it was fun making something for me this time.   
The first project I completed was this sweet little frame which now sits on my kitchen windowsill. 

I used a stamp set from Paper Trey Ink, one of my favorite places to shop.  The set is called Every Day Button Bits.  If you click HERE I have posted a link that will take you right to their site. (just in case you need to have this set for yourself)  :)
I enlisted the help of my Cricut machine to create this next project.  Using the "Tie the Knot" cartridge for the banner pieces and the "Nursery Rhymes" cartridge for the lettering I created this love banner.  With some finishing touches of ribbon, bakers twine, machine stitching, hearts and flowers it now hangs happily from the shelf in my kitchen.





Well now that I have created some fun projects for myself, I'm back to creating for my Etsy shop.  I hope you will stop by for a visit.  I will be adding new items soon.   Before I close this post for tonight,  I wanted to share this picture with you.  All Things Grow with Love----my love for this little guy grows daily.  How could it not......

I sure am blessed to have him as my weekday buddy when his Mommy and Daddy are at work.

HELLO!!! It's so good to see a post from you!! I missed your last 'rose colored' post and think you look very chic in your glasses!!

I also love your Valentine creations and decor! This time of year everything is so drab looking and color, especially red really does brighten everything!

Didn't you make a few cards last Valentines Day with the same stamps? I loved them then and I love them now. Really a versatile set. Mimi
