Today I want to share with you something that has been placed upon my heart. AND I need your help.
As Valentines Day approaches I’ve been thinking about the elderly, specifically those in assisted living facilities, rest homes or those who live alone.
It is a Valentines Day tradition that we share our love with a card, candy, flowers or a gift of some type. But, what about those who don’t have anyone? What about those who are not told that they are loved on this special day?
Let’s do something about that. Let’s get together and make as many Valentines as we can. We will give them to those who may not receive one otherwise.
On SUNDAY JANUARY 28th (my place) starting at 2 p.m I would like as many of us as possible to make Valentines for our elders. I will supply everything, EVEN DINNER. All you need to do is bring your bone folder and snips (if you have those items). If you don’t have supplies no worries I have some that you can use.
The more of us that help, the more cards we can make and the more people we can help feel loved on Valentines Day.
I can almost see the residents sweet faces when they are given a homemade card. Just the thought warms my heart.
Please call me at 209-835-8343 or email me at [email protected] or comment on this post to let me know that you want to participate. Don’t worry about your card making skills. No matter your skill level your help is needed.
Below is a photo of the card we will make. There will be many jobs like cutting card stock, embossing the layer piece, stamping the solid red heart, cutting out the heart, tying bows and so on. I am dreaming of an assembly line of friends new and old, stamping, visiting and creating Valentines. All of which were made from the heart.
If you have these stamp sets and you want to bring them with you please do. The more supplies (inks and stamps) that we have on hand the better.
For dinner, we will have a healthy grilled chicken salad with all the fixings, French bread, and coffee, tea or bottled water.
I’m so excited about this event ladies. I hope you can help. Please RSVP so I can prepare accordingly.

This NEW bundle is so so beautiful… I have had so much fun creating with it. With this bundle you can make a variety of boxes, a little purse, Valentines, love notes and much much more.
Who doesn’t love hearts? Hearts have such meaning, they are a sweet symbol of love and caring. This bundle has many hearts in it. Its all about LOVE.
To embellish the heart I added ink to the folder placed the heart into the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. Isn’t an embossed heart prettier than a plain heart? I think so.
Did you know that the acetate boxes are still available? YES!!! yes they are. You will find them listed in the Carry Over Flyer and below in my product listing . I love those boxes. I’m so glad we can still get them. Today I’m sharing how I filled a box with gold wrapped chocolates for Valentines Day.
We will be making this LOVE box treat plus two other projects at Super Stampers on Wednesday January 25th at 10:00am. Do you want to attend? This group welcomes guests. Just let me know that you want to come. Invite your friends too, I just need to know how many are coming so I can prepare for you.
This project is so simple… you just cover the front of the box with the easy to stamp design and you are done. Ribbon adds a lot to this little gift. I think I may spray the ribbon with adhesive and add dazzling diamonds to it so it sparkles like crazy.
Okay my friends, thanks for stopping in.

LOOK at all that texture!!!
And a coordinating envelope. I love those lips.
I’ve been busy making Valentines as you know, here is another one made with the Sealed With Love Bundle. On pages 14 and 15 of the Occasions Stampin’ Up! Catalog you will find a spectacular spread. SU provides everything you need to create away with LOVE in mind. Don’t get stuck on Valentines, this vignette will work all year round for any occasion, just change up the colors. I see weddings, thinking of you and just love reminders. I’ve been using the traditional white and red, I think it’s crisp and clean simple and sweet. But change it up, there are so many color combos.
I really want to know what you think. So if I get 10 or more comments today, I’m going to randomly pick one of them and send one of you a little goodie. Sound good? Comment away!!!

I LOVE how Christmas is all about the love of Jesus Christ and now Valentines Day is all about the love of our sweethearts. Love is precious and makes the world go round. To celebrate this day of love I’ve started designing cards. Here is one of the Valentines.
I’ve also written some love notes to insert into the Valentines. These Valentines are special and made with love. I hope you like them. You too can make Valentines or you can order them from me, whichever meets your fancy.
