Happy Valentine’s Day sweetheart…

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone.

The day has certainly started out sweet for my sister and I, as my husband had the bacon frying first thing this morning and made us all delicious blueberry pancakes to go with it.

There is nothing better in this world than when my Valentine cooks for me, and I mean that seriously!!!

We have a nice relaxing day planned as it is snowing lightly outside, and we really don't have anywhere that we need to be today. Oh yeah!

Jennie loved her card this morning as I had hoped she would, and loved her gift even more. We bought her the newest Twilight Episode, Breaking Dawn Part 1. We usually buy her flowers but lucky for us the DVD was released last Friday.

Who-ah, Who-ah, now I can finally see it.

I have a yummy dinner menu planned out for them and the only thing I need is for hubby to pick up a few groceries for me. The remainder of the day I hope to sit back and finally get to all those emails and/or blogs so that I can return some of that luv so many of you have been leaving me for me. Thank you so much, it is so nice to hear positive things about my work. I know how important it is for all of us to hear that from each other as it keeps us motivated. After that, I am sure I will need a little nap because the last time I looked there were quite a few to catch up on, especially over at The Outlawz. LOL ;)

In order for me to do that I best show you my card. I couldn’t post this before today because it’s the card I made for my husband. He follows my blog by email so I didn’t want him to see it before today, but now I can!

Allow me to introduce you to, Sophia.



When I finished colouring her with my Copic markers, and put the finishing touches on her all I could think of was, “Hello handsome, come here often?”

I used stickles on her dress, shoes, shawl and eyelids. Last, but certainly not least I used some glossy accents on that Cosmo she’s holding in her hand. I just love Cosmopolitan’s that’s for sure, and perhaps I just might have one this evening to commemorate this romantic occasion, hmmmmm now there’s a thought.

Isn’t she smokin’ hot?


Sophia is a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp which I have been dying to use and chose this opportunity to use her for my Valentine’s Day card. I think she can be utilized for so many occasions, and I especially think she is great for any of the men in your life. You can adapt your sentiment to correspond with your occasion in particular, and simply print it out on your computer. Just a little note though, Sophia does not come with this particular sentiment, but it does come with Betty, which is also from Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps.

I found Sophia to be a  wee bit hard to photograph because of all her bling, therefore I was not able to use my flash. My photos did not turn out as crisp as I would have liked even after some touch ups with Adobe Photoshop. She really does look so much better in person, so to speak.

Well my friends, I best be going if I want to start my blog hopping. Sophia and I would like to thank you all for stopping by The Creative Express Stops Here :)S
