Every year I have inqueeries about why I make so many Valentines when I only have one husband because in other countries, one normally just makes one Valentine per husband. Here, some of us also make them for our friends, too, just like we did in kiddie school.
- AAA Cards, "Love, Love, Love."
- Addicted to Stamps and More, "Anything Goes."
- City Crafter Challenge Blog, "You Matter."
- Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge, "Embossing."
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, "All Creatures Great and Small."
- The Male Room, "Valentine."
Luckily, I had recently excavated and put away a months' worth of desk Deb Ray, so it was fairly clean, but I still spent two hours turning over ever inch of the
Have you ever turned over your die-cutting machine and looked under it to see if a die was clinging to the underbelly for dear life? I know, really? Yup. I did that six or ten times. And, yes, I checked the trash can seven or twenty-two times. Fortunately, I had also recently emptied it (before I opened the die), so there wasn't much to paw through again and again and again.
Sure enough, two days later, I pulled my embossing folder binder off the shelf and as I opened it, I heard a twinkling sound as something hit the wooden floor. Peering over the binder, I could see it was the balloon die! It is a miracle that it actually appeared before it was too late to make Valentine cards with it!
New Friends Corner
Kate Currie of I Love Socks and Cards. Kate is also from the UK (the Highlands of Scotland) and she also started blogging in 2012. When Kate is not making cards, you will no doubt finding her either singing in the Inverness Choral Society or knitting. Kate's blog is warm and cozy, like her socks, and her cards are always brimming with inspiration!
Lolo of Handmade by Lolo. Lolo is from beautiful British Columbia. Although she has been making card art for about eight years and she is a "fully committed paper craft addict," she only started this blog in November of last year, a mere four months ago! Please do make a special effort to go and meet Lolo and welcome her to our wonderful and supportive corner of Blogland. I can tell by her enthusiasm and passion, her generosity of spirit, and her desire to learn new techniques that Lolo is going to shine in our community with a little encouragement from you!
Birgit of BB Creations. Brigit has been blogging since 2009. She lives with hubby Michael, a woodworking artist, one dog, and three cats. She loves nature, fairies, critters, and glitter so you will often see these reflected in her card art. She is also very kind, a humorous writer, and a movie critic, so there is lots to love about Birgit's blog!
Wiebke Kommerell of KomMa-Designed. Wiebke started blogging in 2013. She is a mother of three active children and the entire family enjoys games of any kind. Wiebke loves taking classes and entering her adorable CAS cards in challenges. At present, you can only comment on Wiebke's blog if you are a Google+ member, but I'm hoping Wiebke can change that. Even if you can't comment, you will still enjoy a visit to see her fun and inspiring cards!
