A POCKETFUL OF HEARTS

Happy Friday all!! I have to say, this week flew by!!! I have kept myself very busy so I would not think about losing my job and so far it is working - although I have stamped enough Valentines cards to send to the entire world, LOL!!! And, yep, I have yet another one to share today!! But, first I want to share that the workshop went well last night and we all had fun although it was a bit challenging to talk over the noise in the pizza place, lol!!! Good group of ladies though and those who had never stamped before were really liking it so that was great - I love introducing stamping to new peeps and watching them grin as they create, just makes me feel good!!! Now, on to the card!! I made this one using the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set which I love even more now because Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from each set sold between now and the end of February to aid the people in Haiti - isn't that fabulous??!!! Another reason why I just love this company, they have such a giving nature and truly care about people which is what is should be all about! So, if you want to order this set, shop online with me - it's fast and easy and comes right to your door!!! The envelope on the front is made with a Sizzix die and is available to order in the main catty!! This is one of my favorite cards I have made - it just makes me happy!! So, now I am off to spend time with Tony - he is home for good now and has today off (he surprised me by coming home late last night!) so we are going to goof off and spend time together!! Thanks sooooo much for stopping by, your sweet comments mean a lot - have a fabulous weekend all!!!!
