Valentine Birthday Card

My mom’s birthday is on Valentines Day, and imagine my surprise when I wasn’t showered with gifts by my boyfriends;) I’m dating myself now when I say as a child we made valentines, and by “made” I mean wrote our names on cards that came in a package of 20 my mom bought at the store, we passed them out to our “favorite” people in class and the rest we door bell ditch our friends in the neighborhood leaving a Valentine at the door. If we were really feeling frisky we would tie a string to the valentine and hide, when they came out to retrieve the card we would pull the string so they had to chase it.

Times have changed! I can’t tell you how crazy I am about the new Lace Dynamic folder in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, isn’t it feminine? I’m sorry I used some retired paper from the 2018 Occasions Catalog (Painted With Love), when it came out I stocked up because it is so beautiful and I couldn’t resist brining it out again for this special season.

Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of year where you can earn free stamps, paper, ribbon,  embellishments, or a card kit with every $50.00 you spend. With a purchase of $100.00 you can earn the beautiful Tea Time Framelits Dies that coordinate with the Tea Together stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. If you do not have a catalog please let me know and I will be happy to send you one free of charge.
