Happy Happy Monday!! (I was thinking if I posted HAPPY twice it would have to be right!) hee hee!! I actually like Mondays.. I call them Monday Me Days!! Everyone is back to school and work after a fun weekend.. and I get to just hang out and IGNORE all that should be done. shh dont tell anyone!! :) I do do some laundry.. so they have clothes.. and clean the kitchen.. and make meals.. see it isnt all about me! ;)  ANYWAY!!! Sorry off track for a moment!!

I have a BIG Valentine Share for ya! I had PLANNED to do these in separate posts, and then time just got away from me.. so gonna post them all up and link to some challenges!!! 

 First up a very creative online friend Marybeth share this DARLING box and I LOVED it so much I KNEW I had to make it for my  mom for Valentines Day!!! I wanted to use PTI CS so my top is a bit smaller on the sides.. BUT once it is all tucked in you cant tell!!!  Directions HERE!!
I LOVE how it came out and will for sure be making that box again!!! 

Next up is my Amandas Valentine Gift!!! She is in LOVE with anything Owl.. so I made her a card, and treat box! She was a happy girl! My owl was INSPIRED by THIS cutie I found on a PINNING adventure! My oh My do I LOVE PINNING! ;)
The owl on the valentine card came from THIS etsy shop (she has DARLING items!)
Gift Box is Favorite It Box #2, Tiny Tags Die- PTI, Stamps PTI

Card Kit Share!!

Happy Wednesday!! Hope your having a GREAT week!!! Well it is TIME for our card kit share! We took January off.. so this is our first month of the new year, and we have 9 girls playing along this year! How FUN is that!!! 

This was my month to send out the kit.. I had so much FUN.. and I can not WAIT to see what the girls did with their kits!! 

So without further chat.. here is a photo of the kit I used (I did send some paper that was a bit different to some girls BUT the colors were all the same! and so were the embellies! :) )

 Here is what I created with it.. as USUAL I had a FEW ideas.. but time allowed me 2 goodies!! I will work on the others and share!!!

A little notecard- All supplies from kit, but the tiny bling.. and that heart was not officially in the kit, but a gift for our crop. .. but all the girls in the club got it.. so I used it!! My girly made them for us!! She is so GOOD to me!!

 Also made up a card... again all from kit but small Bling!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by..  if you have time to take a peek at what the girls made up with my kit we would LOVE it!! :)  It is always FUN to see what everyone does with the same supplies!!

Here are the links to their blogs-
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT day!!!!
