 I know, Valentine's Day is long over (well, a week long, anyway).  I didn't want to post these until they had arrived at their intended destinations.  I really had a great time making them, lots of fun!  The card above is made with Valentine's Subway Art instead of a sentiment, a look that I enjoy, and a free digi from Elizabeth O. Dulemba.  If you aren't familiar with her blog, you should check it out.  It's a great mix of things, always fun to read.  Every Tuesday she has a free coloring page which is where the chickens came from. 
I actually made two of these great "hogs and kisses" cards.  This was my second best, but I didn't take a pic. of the first before mailing it off.  Sorry, because I really thought it turned out best.    I cut it with Make the Cut and my Silhouette SD.

Which reminds me, I'm taking a class on how to use my Silhouette from My Creative Classroom, Silhouette 101.  If you are new to the Silhouette this would be a great place to begin.  Classes are videos that can be watched on your own schedule with pdf files to print out that go with the videos.  I like to save the pdf's for reference.  I just cannot remember everything at the same time.  Anyway, this particular class is taught by Jennifer Priest who does a very nice job and although she said that we wouldn't actually do any cutting after the first lesson, I was able to write out a caption and weld it, make a shadow and cut both yesterday.  I'll post that later on, because the card I made turned out very well, or at least I like it.

My husband just told me that it's snowing, a nice surprise.  We've had lovely weather, about 20 degrees above normal, but it is SO dry...  Can't help but worry about the summer.  I like long and hot, but I do not enjoy water rationing!  See, I'm never happy!

Have a great day!
