Valentine You're Sweet - Magnolia

**2nd post today. Lili of the Valley post for Sentimental Sundays and Paper Sundaes is below this one!!**


It's Sunday night and tomorrow is back to work : - ((  So sad. I just want to stay home and play!! My office is inside a building with no windows and it's lonely! ;-((  The past 2 days I have had the windows open, blinds up...it's been absolutely perfect, gorgeous weather. Bright Blue skies, 68-72 degrees...this weekend are the Florida Winters I LOVE! But, it makes me sad to have to go to work and not be able to enjoy it!

Today I did a little crafting.  I inked up this supppppppper CUTE Tilda sitting on a chocolate box. Not sure why I choose her, but she just looks like she is giving Dreamy eyes to her Man! I <3 her! Also, I haven't made an easel card in sometime and I love how it came out.






So I haven't had my sewing machine out lately but thought I would bring it back out today. I had some issues...actually I had lots of issues. I bought some thicker thread, but didn't have a spare bobbin. Figured, it would be fine to just use up what was left of the other one. Well, apparently, it's not so fine. It didn't sew like usually, but I got it done and I will be able to change the bobbin out soon and correct my problem! You don't want to see what the back of the paper looked like!!

I picked up these papers from my new LSS - A Scrapbook and More. They are from Bo Bunny. I also snagged the stickpins from her, they are from Little Yellow Bicycle. About those stickpins. I know that you aren't suppose to keep those little backings on them, but I did. I added some liquid glass to them so they would stay. I didn't want anybody getting poked. Or maybe you are suppose to use them, I don't know what way the "correct" way is...but I like my way just fine. I used a spellbinders for the sentiment. The sentiment was from the dollar bin at JoAnns....sweet huh! I picked up the Magnolias from Diana's Magnolia-Licous Shop!

I am so bad about entering challenges. But I actually am entering a few. I got unlazy today, briefly, and went through a few to see what this weeks challenges were.
