Fun Valentine Cards

 Well the weatherman was right...more snow in the forecast.  It seems winter is here to stay. We are expecting 3-5 inches throughout the night and another inch or so tomorrow.  I am ready....I have been to the grocery store for all the necessities, I have a big pot of chicken soup on the stove, and I have plenty of crafting supplies to keep me busy until......well lets just say I have plenty :)   I have been in the Valentines mood lately and I thought I would post just a couple of the projects that I have been working on for my etsy shop.  I really enjoyed creating the pocket magnet cards for my craft fairs this fall and thought a Valentines version would be the perfect thing to chase away the winter blues.
The little frog is a magnet which fits into the pocket card for mailing.  The back of the card is left blank except for a funny little Valentines message and a place to sign your name. 



                                                                                    
Same idea with this friendly little elephant.  The only difference is the base of the card is covered in fabric instead of paper.   I really am enjoying my cricut machine and  the endless hours of  inspiration it gives me.
Well I am off to my craft studio...I think I will grab a cup of hot chocolate to keep me warm.  I hope you are safe and warm tonight and enjoying your evening.

Hi Mimi! We're waiting for the snow to arrive here, but the weathermen keep changing the amount--We're only supposed to get less than an inch--I'm hopeful for more though! :-)

As always, I love your creations, and there's still plenty of time before Valentine day!

Hello there Mimi...
GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
I saw a comment you put up on Kim's blog and had to come and visit. I am so happy I did. I love your blog!!!
I wish I'd found it earlier, because I've been busy with a secret Scrapbooking project for my daughter's 21st birthday. It's finished now - all 80 pages of it - a mammoth project! It's due for handover at her party on the 5th Feb...it's been hard to keep it secret from her.
I just love your creativity...it's truly inspiring. Wish I was closer to you and could visit your shop.
Sending lotsaluv to you
from your new follower...

Hi, Mimi! Very cute pocket cards. Glad you're enjoying your Cricut. I go in such spurts with mine. Last week I spent some time cutting out random images. Now I just have to make cards with them! We've had quite a bit of cold, icy, snowy weather so far this winter -- at least for us in the South. Now they're calling for some more next week. We'll see. I like the extra crafting and puttering around the house time, but it does make things a little stressful at work. Such are the trade-offs, I suppose. :) Glad to know you are well. (Scrolled down and saw your new glasses. They look great! And I can totally relate to the eye changes -- and I've been visiting the eye doctor regularly since 5th grade!)

Hi there! Great blog! I love the cards, and can't wait to see more! I have also started my own blog. I use my new cricut to make cards. I also cook and post diy projects. Feel free to check it out, and follow if you would like. Thanks :D
