How are you doing today? Have you had a good weekend? I hope you've been able to get some crafty goodness in, and are creating stuff like crazy. It was a gorgeous day yesterday here in NW Iowa, so I did lots of things outside. I am so thankful to have caught up on some much needed cleaning, and we finally took down all of our Christmas decorations. Today is gray and dreary, and I have been in my craft room most of the morning. I've been organizing, and purging. I purge twice a year, and donate whatever I'm not using anymore. I love surprising people with random goodies. :-)
There are a couple of challenges I wanted to play along with, so here is a card that I made. I'm happy to finally have a couple Valentine's made. I was hoping to have them all done by now, but it's been busy.
I wanted to keep this CAS, and let the shaker and sentiment be the focus. This is also my first attempt at any kind of ombre type effect. I am digging it, and hope that the recipient loves it too. I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Have A Heart

I also have another card to share, that I made a week ago, but hadn't gotten around to posting it. I took an idea from THIS post from Amy Rysavy, and changed it up a bit. I love how it turned out. This is R's Valentine this year. I hope he likes it.
So, that's all for me today. I'm off to make a big pot of veggie beef soup and then I'm going to try to get more Valentine's done. Maybe then I'll feel like I'm caught up. lol I hope all of you have a great day!
