Happy Valentine's Day

Hiya, and welcome. Big Hugs & lots of good wishes that each of you will have a super happy day spent with your Sweetie (and family too), and that it can just be a very loving day. I wanted to post a Valentine to all my wonderful followers along with the above wishes. Also will finish sharing the rest of the V. cards that I did.


For all who visit here today! This one's for you along with some big hugs.

Now for the rest of those heart cards:



 
 
 
(looks like the silver trim is coming off in this photo. I did press it firmly back down prior to mailing this card. The interior red backing is from a snippet of Gelli play with some sprays over it. Didn't photo all that well, as it does not look orange-y IRL. )
 

There, that's all until next year. Don't think I've posted any of these cards twice, but if so, please overlook it.

It's sunny here in Upstate South Carolina this morning. Windy though & quite brisk. We watched some tiny yellow finches at the bird feeder this morning. Each day their coloration is changing from the dull of winter to their spring feathers. Also saw quite a few of the finches with red heads...which are called purple finches in our area. Dunno why ...but that's what the locals tell me these are. DH just went out to shake up the Nyger seeds..they seem to be ignoring that in favor of the sunflower seeds. He thought perhaps their feeder had clogged. We'll see if they go back to the Nyger. It's too expensive to waste!!!

Have a grand day. Stay warm. (we're going to Olive Garden this evening for some good Zuppa de Tosca (potato soup) and the O/G salad. Not all that romantic as far as a restaurant goes, but we both like the food. My #2 Bro & SIL are going with us). Big Hugs.

All fabulous cards! I did not get all of my valentine cards done...but I just ran out of steam. I enjoy making them...probably even more than making Christmas cards.

Oh my...so many wonderful cards Mary. I love them all. But those sweet little hedgehogs are just the cutest!

Bonnie said...

Lots of pretty Valentines, Mary! We are sure enjoying the one you sent us! It's cold here today and the birds are really flocking to the feeders. They look fat and fluffy in this cold weather. They're calling for snow and freezing rain tomorrow evening and night. Love the snow, don't like the ice.

Maxine D said...

Oh Mary - these are fabulous. Thank you for the valentines for your followers. I do love the card with the washi tape strips.
Blessings

So many beautiful cards! I think I have that PB one with the little girl holding the cupcake. This should inspire me to stamp it out for the first time.

Also loved that yellow floral one at the bottom of your post...so pretty.

Hope to get out tomorrow and do some errands. Have a list a mile long as we were housebound for so long...

Maybe my travels just might take me to the local craft store! lol

Benzi said...

Mary, thank you for leaving us a Valentine card and it is so beautiful, as all of the cards are. You were a busy bee.

Purple finch is the correct name and I love the goldfinches. They are so pretty. And, they can put away some seed, that's for sure.

Brenda in IN said...

What cute Valentines you made this year. I love the hedgie! Your dinner sounds so good. I love potato soup and make it quite a bit in winter.
