So how's your weekend goin'?  Are you enjoying watching the Olympics?

Do you have all your Valentine's Day cards and treats made?  If not, there's still tonight so you'd better get off the computer and get to work!  lol  ;)

If you're a good mama like my friend Jeanne, you made your sweeties something like this.  But she's nicer than I am {at least this year -lol}.

Me, well, I went for ultra easy this year and just made the kids some chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and cute little red, pink, and white heart sprinkles last night --didn't even have to leave home to round up any ingredients.  They look good enough to eat --and the kids are really enjoying them-- but I'm behaving myself and saving them all for the kids...and hoping they'll be extra nice and share a couple with their dad because I'm not making another dessert this week {plus he always has homemade ice cream if his sweet tooth is calling}.  I may not be indulging in the aforementioned yummies, but I'm not depriving myself either {I didn't want you to worry -lol].  ;P   Remember all those Dove Dark Chocolates some of you sent me for my birthday {thank you!!}?  ;)  Well, they're slowly disappearing, though if I'm not careful I know where I'll be seeing them reappear {not a good thing}. 

Okay, so here's the card I made using the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.  Did any of you try this one?  I thought it was a fun one.

I used some patterned papers I bought about this time last year and used Heart Prints by Papertrey Ink for the images...can't seem to get enough of that set lately. 

Well, I'll be back to share one more Valentine tomorrow....  Time to finish up another card and then go relax with my sweet hubby.  Hope you enjoy your evening too.

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

Gorgeous card, Christi! A wonderful use of papers and piercing and sewing. WOW.

Thanks for the compliments on my efforts on those Krispies treats (that was a compliment, right?). They are definitely disappearing here and some may just show up where I don't want them to, darn.

Hope you have a love-filled day!
