Be My Valentine ... A 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, hampers!

Today's CAS card was created for the Inspiration Journal blog challenge ... to put a heart on it. So I did! I {heart} shopping at Inspiration Emporium so the chance to win a $50.00 Emporium Certificate was too good to miss ... especially with all the new Tim Holtz goodness arriving!

I was also inspired to create this card for CASual-Friday's Clean and Simple "Movie" challenge. My movie inspiration is the 'love-ly' film "Valentine's Day." Didn't see that coming, didcha?!?

For the short list of product I used in creating this card, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, yesterday Sheila asked me to come over to take a photo of her and her DH for their wedding anniversary.

I set up my tripod and camera in front of the happy couple and noticed that Sheila looked stiff and way too "posed."

"Why don't you lightly drape your arm around Ken's shoulder?" I suggested.

"Deb, if you want Sheila to look natural, why not have her put her hand in my pocket and on my wallet?"

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
