Non-pink V-day card

I was thinking about doing a non-traditional valentine's day card.  It's not that I don't like pink and girly, but it can get to be too much at times, so here is my attempt to change it up a bit  :)

Brr.... it is SO cold outside!  Keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get sick this winter.  So far so good.  :)  With that in mind, it got me thinking of a 'get whale soon' card in case I need to send one out!

Sew sweet!

Really lovin' the Nifty Fifties cartridge!  I've always enjoyed sewing and vintage clothing.  This card was my homage to everything retro!

Got the 'Nifty Fifties' Cricut cartridge as a gift at holiday time...  SO neat-o!  Not sure what I am going to use this card for yet...  maybe a birthday card from the cat?  Have a 'purr-fect' day!  :)

In the beginning...

There is a 'first time' for everything and well, here we are.
Thought I would share some of my card making, scrapbooking, and other random ideas, so lets get started!

Got a call from a friend a few days ago who kept coughing and sneezing... so I wanted to send out  a card!  :)  A bug is going around and with the ever changing weather this time of year you never know when it will get you!
