Happy New Year, everyone!



I hope your New Year has started off wonderfully and full of fresh and innovative ideas for the coming year! We spent the day mostly at home. I had a chance to create (finally) something for myself. It's been a long three-and-a-half weeks since I've had this opportunity. While in Tampa, Florida, last week, visiting my brother, I stopped at a Joanne's Superstore and bought some Heidi Grace stamps. I fell in love with her paper when I had seen it at Archivers several months ago. I didn't realize that she had created stamps using the same images in her papers. I'm not sure who designed the patterned paper that I used on the card (oops! I forgot to look). I whipped out my sewing machine, some Stickles and mounting tape to add a few small touches to this card.

This is a page for a swap called "My Funny Valentine" on the Stamp Shack. Tami is hosting this swap. She has asked us to create a 4 x 4 page, and include a funny quote on the page about love or Valentine.
