It's Monday!

Hello Floks today is monday and many of us are heading off to work. I know that I am. I have a full week ahead of me. We normally have every other friday off but this month the boss is making us work our friday off and giving us a four day weekend at the end of the month. Which stinks right now but come the 4 day weekend and it will be awesome! I spent much of yesterday sorting out valentine images and taking them to the PO. Gals that is over with. It was alot of fun and alot of different images to color. I also worked on ATC's for some swaps and for my pals that I send out monthly ATC's to. This ATC idea was taken from http://paperiini.blogspot.com/ . She inspired me to use this stamp set. So today I have been working on Valentine ATC's this Valentine truck took up a great deal of time. This is the stampin up loads of love truck stamped on pink cardstock. Using marvy matchables ink. The hearts was stamped on a designer paper so that I didn't have to color each and every heart. I used a corner rounder with the heart on it for all the corners. Iused a gel pen to color the hub caps and fenders. Prisma colored pencils for the tires and girl. I made 20 of these, well I am in the process of making 20. They are all put together just need to color about 15 more of them. It got to be too late and needed to get to bed.
I did get to spend the day with my mom on friday! We sat around and talked and stamped and shared ideas. She brought me some new House Mouse stamps,I am anxious to play with those. I also got to stamp out some of her stamps so that I have some things to color. I am getting addicted to stamping. It's all I think about.

I also made a Valentine card for a Secret sister!
When I stickered the heart on it I didn't realize everyone was going to read it as such "I hugs you"! It was intended to read "I love you" or "I heart you" but i guess "I hugs you" works too, since we are distant friends.

Well I hope every one has a wonderful Monday! And the weather
gets better for everyone. It can't snow for ever. Can it? We received another inch of the white stuff yesterday! Burr! Hard to think spring cards and flowers or even Easter when it is snowing outside.

I am doing an Easter image swap now on Split Coast stampers. Check it out can be alot of fun shareing your stamped images with other people. It is in the products and images thread.

Hey There Missa, Thanks for popping by and posting your comment. How cool that your mom is also an Angel - and for you to be the one telling her that you know me. WOW! I feel special, girl!! I had to share that story with my hubby. Thanks for making me smile!!

I totally love this card. I bought this stamp set, and haven't even used it yet. I better get those stamps mounted, and use them before the occasion passes.

Anyways, have an awesome day today - don't work too hard.

Take Care!!
Jen
