 No new laptop as yet but my February card kit showed up last week.  I really was anxious to get this one because it is full of goodies.

 The theme is crafting and it's got everything from watercolors to sequins in it. I can't wait for the online tutorials to begin on YouTube so I can follow along with those who know what they are doing.

I played with the kit a bit using the textured embossing folders and came up with this. It's nothing to brag about but I had a good time cutting and inking up all the little bumps. I was getting tired of Valentines. I had 18 people participate in the giveaway so I made 18 Valentines last week. That's a lot of Valentines.

Speaking of Valentines, I'm not quite done. I'm working on these for the Daughter and the Grands.

I also have these new vine dies to play with. They are intended for art jounaling, if I ever get to it. There's always something else I should be doing but I have no complaints. I like to keep busy.

Finally, even though I am knee deep (and loving it) in Dear Jane, I want to make a mini quilt to match the February runner Daddio made for me ages ago. In my last fabric shipment I added a couple of red charm packs for some Valentine hexies. Now I have to go dig out the runner so I can figure out how to get them to coordinate. Happy February!


  1. The cards you made are wonderful and look like they would be fun to create.

  2. Oh man. MY Valentines are nothing like yours. YOU"RE Sweet is darling darilng darling.

  3. You are SO busy! I do like your new card making things. Those vine dies are really pretty. Me thinks you have a magic clock that gives you extra hours in the day to get everything done.

  4. Gosh, you do EVERYTHING!!! Love those little vines - really cute.

  5. I don't know how you do all you do but you inspire me. Your cards are so well done. They are so much nicer than anything available in the stores.

  6. Those vine dies are very interesting. Have fun with your February pack!

  7. I'm so glad I'm not the only polycrafter. There are just so many fun crafty things to do!

  8. This looks like a ton of fun lined up for this month! I love the pops of red!
