You only Live Once

Good Morning. Well the sun is shinning bright but......no grass and they are saying more snow in the morning. Come on, give us a break already LOL. Here is a card I did for the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges. To make red the main point of the card. I think I have done this. The flower image is the stamp my dear friend Mary Anne sent me for my birthday! The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Fifth Avenue Floral that I borrowed from Pam yesterday during our stamp playday. I have this embossing folder and thought that was what I was going to do, but maybe later LOL. I am woman and can change my mind, it's the LAW LOL. I used my scor-pal to create the background. I'm practicing for Selma's challenge over at STV. I also added the gems that came with the stamp set she gave me, ribbon is from Michael's.
I gave Bill (my DH) his Valentine card this morning and later he showed me one I have given him about 3 or 4 years ago. The first picture is from 1992, man how we have changed, we looked so young and now.....well we can't decide who caused who to age LOL. I say he did and he says I put every grey hair on his head LOL. NOT. Well, I plan on a very lazy day today and plan on watching Nascar later, poor Jr. he wrecked yesterday and it wasn't his fault, so I'm really pulling for him today. Yall have a great Valentines day and Happy Stamping!

How did I miss this post! The stamp is kinda cute, huh? Glad you got to use it! Love the pictures. I think you are doing this to try and get me to post some. LoL! Hubby does the Fantasy Nascar thing, so every week it is someone new. He was a Tony fan until he left Home Depot.
