I'm Addicted!

Just when I was about to give up on card making I decided to become addicted instead! I love this brunette lady (below) from my own stash because she reminds me of my mom when she was young and glamorous.
Can't forget about the precious little boys...

or the blondies!
Here's mom again. ☺

What? No kittens or puppies?! Maybe next time!
I'm getting such a collection of card images that I truly am forgetting where each one came from! Do any of you have that problem? Just know that if these cards were shared by YOU, I really appreciated it at the time -even though I can't remember that you gave them to me! Hee-hee!

Twyla, if any of these images came from you and Lindsey, let me know and I'll give you credit and you can also link to me again if you want to. You don't have to ask.
The weatherization guys are coming back today to finish up their work. Bobby will have to sleep in my craft room so I won't get to make cards today. I'll have to wait until tonight!
Hope you all have a happy day!

Good Morning Sweetie...
I love the cards you have shared with me today. They are so beautiful. I just do not know how you do it.

I too,love the little brunette. She is just as cute as a bug. Love her little facial expression. So cute. Love the little postman too, as my Daddy worked for the post office for years. Thanks for sharing today.

Have a beautiful day sweetie.

Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Those are adorable! I think homemade Valentines are the very best kind, don't you?♥

And I wanted to tell you something about those slippers that you and my Millen share... I told you they were washable, but I just found out yesterday that they are bleachable as well. Poor millen's were getting so dreary looking, I put them in a bleach load, thinking, "Oh well, they can't look much worse!" LOL They came out looking sooo nice and fresh. Just wanted to share;)

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Holly, your cards are so pretty! I'm glad you made more, you are very talented. I don't think any of these were our images. I love little brunette girls too. Your mom must have been very pretty. It looks like you are doing great with the punches now! Hope you have a great day! Twyla

You've done a wonderful job adding all these cute valentines in your sidebar.
Love each and every one.

Your cards are so cute Holly, that I can understand why you would want to make more! You're so good at it!
I have a question about the cards and tags. Do you print out all of these images, or do you sometimes use the actual old cards? The reason I ask is that my husband thinks it's going to cost a fortune in ink cartridges if I keep printing out stuff!

Jenny S said...

BEAUTIFUL!!! "Mom" was one from me!!

Lisa said...

Love all your Valentines! I too have way too many. My computer decided to be out (or almost) of ink today so my Valentine making will come from ones I already have. I have the most expensive printer ink there is!

Hey Holly!
All of your Valentines Cards are precious...I love that lace punch that you got with your Christmas money! I think you will have many years of fun with that...it makes your cards look extra special.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous hasn't it? It was 58 down here today...and sunny...I love it, perfect weather...it did feel like spring. I'm glad to know you have been getting some warmer weather too....it will be spring before we know it won't it? I can hardly wait! Hope you have a great night...I've had such fun seeing what you've been up to!
Big Hugs,

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

They are all so unique and sweet. Sure do bring back good memories. My hubby has his 'old' Valentines still in a scrapbook that his mother put together when he was little. I'll post some soon! Hugs to you! ♥

Thank you for the birthday wishes...blowing out a candle with a thankful heart for you!
Your addiction is a good thing...now, remember, in the world of addictions you may just want to mood-alter and stay happy. That means when you have the itch to satisfy your addiction (mood-altering) you go shopping for supplies and buy out the paper and sticker section! Tee hee...can you tell I've had some therapy for my addictions?

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Isn't that Lace punch super cute?!
I wish I could all around with it but I haven't figured out a way.
It's still one of my most used punches from my collection. I have used it so much that it doesn't punch as well anymore! I must get another one soon.
Your cards are so lovely! Your a great card maker!
Hope your having a fun week!!!
