Happy Valentines Day!

And a very happy birthday shout out to my sister and my friend Kimberly! Hope you both have a wonderful day! Speaking of my sister's birthday, she turnes 21 today! Boy that makes me feel old. (I know, I know...) So I thought I would post a few quick shares to help us celebrate this great day of love.

First I have a photo of the mini album that I made for my sister. I figured with all the celebrating this weekend, she would have alot of photo's. What better way to store them than in a cute mini?

It's actually a small photo album that I have had since I was like 5, I just covered it in PP. I still have to put some ribbon around the edges to cover the paper tear on the top right side. When it tore, my BF asked me what I was going to do now and I told him "It's not a mistake, it's an oppertunity to embellish." He thought it was the funniest thing he ever hear! My co-worker and I found that quote online at a scrapbooking tee store. Anywho.

Now I have a few cards to share with you. This is a simple Valentines Day card that I made folowing an example I saw in the Feb 2009 CK. It's from Becky's Sketch. I simply punched a few circles out of some PP scraps that I had in my scrapbox. Then I diecut the word love using my cricut. The rest of the card I did freehand using a black marker. To make the lines semi-straight (because I am a perfectionist) I used a ruler to show me what a straight line would be, then drew it freehand next to the ruler.

Easy peasy, and it would be very easy to adapt this card to match any occasion!

This next card is another really simple card using the George and the Jasmine cartridges for the cricut.

I would like to thank all of you ladies for your lovely comments on yesterday's card! It was so nice to come home from work yesterday and see that my blog does get visitors! It honestly is one of my favorite simple cards - I am so glad that you liked it too! Hope you have a safe and wonderful valentines day!
