Boy am I having a creative block lately... I hope that those card ideas come flowing back to me soon... some days I think of several cards a day.... they just come to me ... the last couple of weeks I can't think of a card to save my life ... today I did have a couple of ideas.... but they are hard to execute.... isn't it funny how you can loose what comes so easy with just a few days out of practice!! ... I did end up liking this one...its different... but I think I like it... its one of those cards one time I look at it and I like it lots and then I look at it a few minutes later and am not so sure.... I have a couple more thank you cards I need to make... am far behind.. thanks for looking!!~~Jeannie

Robby's Valentine

I was so excited when I decided what to do with this paper and exactly how I wanted to make Robby's Valentine Card... I wanted it to be special!!... because Robby is the love of my life, and has been for the last 29 years.... he spoils me rotten, still holds my hand, he lights up when I walk in a room...and I light up when he walks in a room... he still makes my heart pitter patter... he always kisses me good-bye and walks me to the car when I leave the house first... and the list goes on and on... I love him with all my heart!! ... I hope he loves his card!!... TFL~~Jeannie

Alabama/Auburn Valentines Cards

These seem simple I know...but they weren't maybe because they were so outside my box... I am terrible at shape cards for some reason... but in the end I was happy... as most of you know my kids are at opposing colleges...Madison at Alabama and John-Robert at Auburn so I am sure you can guess which card goes to who... I couldn't resist adding a little bit of humor to John-Roberts card (he is the class clown in the family)... so I added some bling to the tiger... see if you can find it....I wanted the cards to be a reminder of Elementary School Valentine's Days.... I hope that they are... Thanks for looking and I love your comments ~~Jeannie
