Wishing You A Beautiful and Blessed Valentines Day

Just spreading some 
 today and I hope that you do the same to
you encounter today!!!

I happened across a blog the other day,
 liked what I saw and joined. 
 Now I'm going to tell you something - 
I have NEVER been 
welcomed so much to ANY site that I've visited! 

 I am checking out all of their challenges because
 I'm now so interested in these friendly people! 
 Thanks Outlawz

This is the layout for the current challange they have  and 

This is my interpretation:

I found these printed papers on sale at a Michael's. 
 I really like the addition of the blue into the papers.

This is a stamp from my flower shop days. 
 I embossed it with Ranger's Red Embossing Tinsel.
As you will see, the original sentiment didn't work on my card with all the feathers - 
so on to plan "B".

I am REALLY needing more work on my hand scrolling
 - practice - practice - practice

I had originally picked white card stock for the base, but
 decided on the red just before I assembled it.
 I like it so much better.

I added a bunch of "bling" to the card, especially since the people at
 just sent me this huge bag of goodies for
 winning one of their blog hops! 

 Thank you!

Now that I have all this great stuff from ya'll -
 I'm going to join in on some of your challenges at Petaloo!!!

Look out - here I come!

Have a wonderful day, ya'll.

Sending you blessings from a rainy morning in Florida
(my garden is loving it)
so I am too.
