Merci

I made this quick card the other day with some pretty papers I had lying around from Making Memories "Je t'Adore" collection.  The only stamping I did was the sentiment which is from PTI.


On another note, I did manage to make my 22 + 3 cards (teacher X 2 plus the busdriver) yesterday for my daughter to take to school today!  I went very, very simple thanks to a PTI set called Tiny Valentines and my Spellbinders Circle die.  We were not allowed to put candy into the little goodie bags (now I have packets and packets of candy to get rid of - if only they had mentioned this two weeks ago!), so I did have some Valentine pencils and a little heart notebook.  It's the thought that counts right.

Here is what I made, not the best photos, I apologise!



And lastly, I just discovered Instagram!  I have seen it mentioned so many times by Alexandra on her blog, and came across it on someone else's blog this morning so I thought I had better get with the times!  What a fun app for the iPhone and it's free!  So I test drove it with this picture this morning of my daughter writing some last minute Valentine notes to her teachers:


Wishing you all a fabulous Valentine's Day!

Happy, happy birthday, Brenda! Wishing you lots of love & happiness on this special day! And your daughter's valentines came out great! I love the pencil & notebook idea. I was shocked to see how much candy Elisia got today; wished they had limited the candy at her school. Happy Valentine's Day to you & yours!
