Thinking Spring...hopeful thoughts from the cold northeast

Hope you are getting in some quality crafting time.  I have a few more valentines to make for the people I send cards to every month.  I'll make a few extras for the boxes of cards I give at Christmas (see my post "A Gift for the Person who has Everything").  Looks like Tuesday will be my crafting day--with a forecast of sleet and freezing rain I'll be right in my craft room all day!

Happy Crafting!

Icy today so a pretty colored card is just what I needed. I love that die!

I have a cat that sits outside my house like this at the bird feeders - these brought a smile to my face!

How lovely, Anne. This card really reminds us spring will be on it's way before too long. I have been making spring cards also as this brutally cold weather here in Maine is getting to me. It was great to see you at
the grocery store this past week!

nice cards. i'm partial to the red birds.
