Hi, Friends.....

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! After enjoying some warmer weather and then clear and cold, we are back to snow as usual here in Idaho.....and currently in the middle of a winter storm. I put a fresh suet feeder out for the birds in front of my craft room window. It's fun to see the chickadees and juncos enjoying it. 
(Skippyjon can't figure out why they won't visit the feeder when he is poised to make a flying leap from the porch rail beneath it! lol..   "Here birdy, birdy, birdy....")

So...with the flurries of snow, are you ready for a flurry of cards?????

I have been making a bunch of cards and haven't had a chance to blog them!!! So I will be posting a bunch of different cards with limited descriptions beyond their product lists. Here is my latest.......a 25th Wedding Anniversary card for a couple in our church. They are celebrating it this week. Last Sunday they brought a sheet cake to share with us. Yum! It was decorated with a "ball and chain" in icing!! Hahahaha.
