I have been staying busy. My work seems to follow me home. Sonny and I visited Dad and Joan on Sunday. Dad is doing good, he walked down to the river to feed the fish with us. He seemed more like himself. J.P. turned 26 this week, give him a call to wish him a happy birthday. Sonny tilled up the back yard for a garden. (More Work!) Last week we planted some pear and pecan trees on the front of our property. We hope to create a fruit orchard.

I have had a very busy week. Last Monday and Thursday were Stamper Ten club meetings and Tuesday night I taught a class at Priceless. I made strawberry scratch and sniff tags for the muffins that I made for my club members. I started with these sweet little heart shaped tins. I baked the muffins in the tins and then packaged them in cellophane bags, tied ribbons and tags on them. I still wasn't feeling well last weekend, along with having a bad day, so Margi made me the sweetest little gift. This is just awesome! It was filled with several different flavors of tea. Check out this matching card. Thank you Margi, it was very sweet of you to think of me. The tea was great, I had another cup tonight.

I love my Big Shot! I am having so much fun playing with the different dies. I know you are going to love this one. Stampin' Up doesn't carry this one, but I really like it. I wonder how long the clear cutting plates last, mine are already starting to curl. Here is a picture of a Valentine that I made using the scallop card die. Don't you just love it?

This is my first step card. I saw one done like this and thought I'd spiff it up a bit. I like the way it turned out, and I have several ideas for more. Now, all I need is the time to do them. Have a great weekend! Get busy making your valentine cards, we have one more week.

The texture plates for the Big Shot will not fit in the Cuttle Bug. They measure 8" x 6". They are much bigger than the Cuttle Bug embossing folders.
I am so glad to here that so many of you are going to make the little tag candy holders. I'm sure you will be pleased with the results. Here is a little more Valentine inspiration. I bought these lollipops at WalMart. There are two in a package for $1. The lollipops measure 3" x 3". I used Stampin' Up's retired set called Love Always. The heart fits over the lollipop perfectly.

I'm working on getting some of my Valentine projects completed. This is a Ghirardelli tag, with Velcro closure. The tag measurement are 7 3/4" x 2 1/2". Score it at 3 3/4", 4", and 6 1/2". I used the new stamp set called "Just Buzzin' By". This is a really cute set.
