I know it's early for Valentine cards, but...

I'm trying to get a few done for a card drive. It makes me happy to know a hospitalized child will get this card and maybe smile. The cards have to be postmarked by January 31st, so if you'd like to contribute one or two or more, HERE is the blog sponsor.


The 7 Gypsies dictionary paper was a narrow leftover piece in my stash, so I went with it. Not sure I'm okay with the unadorned white sides but I'll sleep on it. I do love that hamster stamp from Paper Smooches Party Posse set, though. And how about that adorable font from their Sentiment Sampler? I was inspired to use the negative heart space when I was trawling through the Splitcoast Stampers website.

Earlier today, I viewed a really fascinating You Tube video of a lecture given by a theoretical physicist named Lawrence Krauss. (I think my recent interest in the Big Bang Theory sitcom reruns made me listen a little closer. Okay, so I imagined Sheldon was giving the talk. Lol.) The idea that the universe is expanding and that we are made up of stardust really boggled my mind. It made me realize that while we may be specks of dust in the scheme of things, it's all the more reason to enjoy ourselves while we're here. For me, it's making cards.

Enjoy your day. *smile*

It is too early - way, way too early - but you are forgiven, because that card is way, way too cute.

Heehee, love those two little love-sters! LOL How cute that you made a heart window and one is holding a box of hearts. This is too much cuteness for one card, Cindy!

The dictionary page is a perfect excuse to use orange - probably the only thing that would make me do it myself. :) LOVE this card. And yes, stamping makes me happy, too.
