Bring on Valentine's Day!
I need to get back to stamping and now that Christmas is over, I wanted to move on to the next holiday. I know Valentine's day isn't really a holiday, but there are so many things to make for Valentine's day, that I'm officially calling it a holiday!
I love making these little matchbook covers that hold a piece of Ghiradelli candy, so I made a few more. I used various stamps, colors and brads. I even used a few left-over snippets of ribbon that I'd saved which were perfect for these little gems. Instead of using cardstock for the insert, I started using coordinating DP which reduces bulk and makes them easier to close. People love receiving them, especially the little ones. I'm sure I'll be making more for Easter, St Patrick's day and many other special occasions!
My hubby and I are celebrating our 41st wedding Anniversary today and I just can't believe how fast all those years have flown by! What a ride!! We rarely make a fuss over the occasion because Christmas and New Year's day pretty much take the spotlight, but perhaps if we make it to 50 yrs, we'll do something special.......if we're still able :)
Have a great Monday everyone!
