Valentine Morning

I couldn't resist having more fun with my new toy and make some more beautiful doilies!  My husband works at a paper mill and when they were still making colored papers and other useful papers, like writing paper, he often could bring home the ends of rolls or things that were discarded or not perfect.  I have a huge roll of white paper and it is perfect for these doilies.  Plus the green wrapping paper (you'll notice is wrinkled) I also stamp and use for wrapping paper just from me to him.  He is always delighted when he sees I'm using things he saved from going to the landfill!

Sooooo....since he's working day shift tomorrow, which means up at 4a.m. this is what will wait for him in the kitchen tomorrow!  His bag of Maple Nut candy even looks sweeter wrapped in a doily!

Good thing he has no idea how to follow my blog, because this is of course a secret until tomorrow, so shhhhhhh!  Don't tell!

Giggling and glad you stopped by to take a peek!

DeNami Adorable Animals Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying this DeNami Blog Hop!  What is cuter than all these adorable animals!?  Hopefully you arrived here from Tenia Nelson .  If you need to get back to the beginning for any reason--you just hop on over to the DeNami Blog and make sure you don't miss anyone.  You'll want to leave a comment on each one for a better chance at winning one of the Gift Certificates for shopping at DeNami!
I made my first card a while ago for my husband.  Didn't want to make it too frilly but it still kind of turned out that way!  I just think Valentines are more fun if they're really sweet and lacey like the old fashioned ones!  I loved the little scalloped hearts and had to pop a few of those off as well as the center circle of pups. 

But then, I just received my new Martha Stewart circle edge punch system this week and I had to play with my new toy!  This really made it look more like a doily and much prettier, so I made this for my girlfriend.  It's hard to see the raised layers and glitter on the hearts and dots, but it came together kind of sweet!

 I couldn't resist adding an adorable inside too!

There they are!  And now you're off to see Lisa Elton
