Eye Adore You!!

Where has the time gone!! I've been super busy, crafting even, but I can't believe I've let my posting slip. Shame shame shame!! I guess I need to do a little week in review since I missed ALL of last week . . .

First off is this cutie card I made using Dreck from paper Makeup Stamps. Love the punny sentiment that coordinates with him. I coulda shoulda used this for my DH's Valentine. DOH!

Instead, I'm using it as an entry in this weeks challenge at the Woodware USA blog to create a shaped card - perfect!

Next up is a pic of my other valentines. Every year I make a traditional dinner of a heart meatloaf, pink mashed potatoes, and "cupids arrows" (a.k. french style greens beans). We all eat by candelight on heart shaped plates and the boys get to drink red juice out of wine glasses. You can tell by the pic how absolutely thrilled they are!! They're favorite part, dessert of course. I try to make it different every year. This year we had red velvet cheesecake - yum!

Last week we found out that our middle son was selected as our school districts Artist of the Month!! Here he is with his artwork that is on display at our local civic center. He thought it was pretty cool to see his work framed so nicely and on display. So did I, we're very proud of him!

Finally, here is a pic of my V-day present from my DH. No, not the mirror, or the flowers. My DH spent 4 days putting all of the stone up on our fireplace and creating the mantle!! It's been an ugly shade of naked grey durarock for a couple of years now. We bought the stone on sale, used some leftover wood from another project. Total cost about $300.00!!! Absolutely LOVE it!.
Hope you had a LOVE-ly week last week and looking forward to a super cool one this week too :0)
