CCEE1706 Valentine

For our challenge this week, Liz has asked us to show a little love by making a handmade Valentine.  It's a color challenge.....RED, black, and white, and for the bonus, add a glimmer of silver.

My Valentine kitty is wearing Valentine boxer shorts that are fussy cut and popped.  The image is pasted over RED mirror paper, and there are silver heart brads scattered about.  The fun sentiment is from Joanne Woodward - Paul Newman must have been a fab guy, but not as fab as my DH who will get this card from me!

We have three family birthdays within 15 days.........John, our youngest grandson on Jan. 30, David, our son on Jan. 31, and DH, Jay, on Feb. 14 (Valentine's Day).  We get the family together to celebrate them with a cake with three candles.

This year, Amy has the flu, so all of the Chisholm's stayed home.  We didn't get John.  We had the rest of the guys, and only two candles, but we managed to sing really loud, so maybe John heard us!  Here are the birthday boys.  Happy Day, guys!!

CCEE 1705 Reading/Book

Our new hostess for the month of February is Liz Williams.  In honor of Library Lovers month, she challenged us to a reading or a book theme for our cards.

I used Fairy Tales as my theme......

Inside it has a humorous comment:

"Life is not a fairy tale.  If you lose your shoe at midnight, you're drunk!"

I send cards to my DD at her Law Office every week.  She has a difficult job, lots of  hours, etc.  As a result, the cards I send to her are always fun.  Her legal secretary, Annie, and Dori, her office manager, also get a card occasionally, and the cards are left beside the coffee machine for them and the other lawyers to enjoy.  I think this card will bring smiles, and maybe a laugh or two.
