Midnight Quilt Mania

The weekend is finally here, woohoo! I need to get back in my craft room and make some more Valentine cards. I've really been in the mood this week. Last Saturday I stayed up until 5:30 a.m. creating cards. :0 It's true. The only time I really get to stamp is from 9:00 p.m. until sunrise while the DD is in bed. It's just too hard to focus when she's in the room, all you mothers of toddlers can relate I'm sure! Plus something strange happens when I get in the groove of creating, I just don't get tired. In fact, it only energizes me and I can't go to sleep sometimes for an hour or more after I've stopped. This is why I seldom make cards on a weeknight. Otherwise I would stay up way too late. Well, enough of that, here is another Valentine card I made for someone special.

The layers on this card were inspired by a beautiful card from Debbie Olson that appears in the current issue of Paper Crafts. I gathered a bunch of colors of cardstock and played around with them until I found a combination I liked and then I began stamping backgrounds on them and punching borders. Then I sewed some layers with my sewing machine and added this sweet little dog image from Tiny Treats: Valentine. A complete list of stamps and products are listed below.

Have a great day everyone! I'm off to Weight Watchers to do my monthly weigh in. UGH! And then I'm going out with the family. I need to get a new suit for an interview this week. I'm applying for a promotion position so wish me luck! :)
