Who Loves You!

Valentine's Cards Made during Winter Stamp 08

Card I Made for the Chocolate WS Challenge
I gave this one to Jake.. See the chocolat ribbon???
Very special stuff that I got from a RAK from Ginny's Small studio!

This was for a stencil/template challengeThis card I gave to my husband...



Hello everyone!
Well, I'm sitting here with a box of tissues and pocket full of Ricola throat lozenges... Sore throat, runny nose... That's me... The germs my kids have been swapping with other kids decided to jump ship to an older more stable victim...me.. All the moms out there can sympathize, I'm sure... I mean, what is the justice in being your kids nurse only to have their germs turn on you??? Last night, my daughter came into our room with a high fever, bad headache, and needed some momma Love... her ailments were hinting at a horrendous ailment, I was certain.. so, to ward of the bad juju, from midnight until about 3:30 am I nursed my baby girl (who is actually 10)... Back rubs, cold wash clothes and a bath were here remedy..in addition to Children's Motrin. and momma in her bed...holding her tight...

Oh..my son went through this Sunday night...

So, today, while I was 'down' from lack of sleep, the germs attacked. And, after breaking her fever, my sweet little daughter decided she was just fine and happy as a clam... and tired of hanging out in her bed... That's her down there, watching TV and laughing... and me? Cough cough sniff sniff... can't wait till bedtime!

OK.. Back to Love...
I really should not complain.. (but my cousin Deb started it!)...
Yesterday I took a wonderful road trip to Boise.. the main purpose was to deliver a meat order, to one of my favorite Boise customers... But Boise needs to be savored! Enjoyed! Appreciated!

I talked my ever so wonderful friend Michelle into going with me and we had a great day! Here we were, 2 moms who dropped our kids off at 7:45am at school then hit the road... our husbands were in charge of picking up our kids in the afternoon while us mommies played in the big city... Such great guys!!!!

We shopped for our valentines (kids and husbands) at Cabellas and various other stores... Ate a great lunch at Olive Garden (Thanks Michelle!!!!), played at some cute fun stores and then came home... Such a great day... Girlfriends are the best!!!

Tonight I put out the gifts, made the table pretty with candles, and served my Valentines Rib Eyes, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a salad.. we toasted our apple cider and said Happy Valentines Day! My sweeties gave me roses.. sigh... Everyone loved their gifts...nothing extravagant.. just some 'I'm thinking of you' goodies...

I'm feeling the Love.. Love of sweet friends, and my sweet family... I hope all of you are feeling the love as well... I love the fact that you come to visit me, hear my ramblings and leave little notes...

Have a beautiful evening...
sniff!

What a beautiful post. You captured my attention from start to finish. I couldn't stop reading. What a great vibe you have going on here.

Your cards are fantastic and I'll go ahead and say DH's card is my favorite. Classy and a little sexy, too with the heart necklace. At least that's how I see it.

Classy Sexy love, *karendianne.
