On to Valentines....

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone!! Christmas is over so I'm moving on to the next holiday!! All my Christmas decorations & the tree are all put away.....so I'm ready.....I'm ready.....I'm ready (I watch way too much Spongebob)




I don't think I've ever used this cutie from High Hopes! The image is called Overwhelming Love & is available at 7 Kids College Fund *HERE* .....Funny thing about this card......when I cut the image....I was looking at the possum, rather than the whole image itself. I finished the card, took the picture, & didn't realize until I was editing that it was sooooo crooked! The mailbox looked like a snowplow drove into it a few times. So....luckily I had attached that layer with just foam dots....I peeled it off & placed it at an angle.....VOILA!!! Now it's straight, lol!!!! The papers are SU's Chocolate Chip & Basic Grey Bittersweet.....finished it with a few flowers....some ribbon & a heart charm.




A close up of the now straight-but-not image....





I used thick embossing powder on the mailbox.....so even though it's been hit by the plow, it still has retained its perfect shine!!

Well I'm off to get ready to have lunch with a friend today that I haven't seen in many many years. We are going to Chili's....can you believe I've *never* been to a Chili's?? Then back home for pizza & Wii with my kids!! Michael even went back to bed this morning after breakfast to store up some sleep, so he can last until midnight! Hmmm...maybe I should do that!!

Have a happy & safe New Years!!!!
