45,000 Hits - Happy Valentine's Day to ME!!!

HOLY COW!!!!! 45,000 HITS!!!!!!! Yesterday, I was UNBELIEVABLY surprised to see the hit counter bounce over 45K! So, OF COURSE, I need to dig up some BLOG CANDY for someone! I am cleaning out my stamp room, so I have TONS upon TONS of stuff to give! Share what you did for Valentine's Day that made this day memorable to you. For me, it was FABULOUS! I got to spend it with my husband, who was home from deployment for the weekend. We ordered Chinese food and watched the movie Vantage Point on Netflix. Yup, that was it! And it was GREAT!!! So, here are a few Valentine's Day cards to continue the weekend...

Stamp Sets: Love Owl-ways, Best Yet
Ink: Basic Gray
Paper: Lavender Lace, Pretty in Pink Prints DSP, Sale-a-Bration DSP, Watercolor
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose)
Punches: 1 3/4" Circle, Full Heart
Card Size: 3 x 3
These little guys were SUPER simple... I made them for my team at work. They turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself!
The next card was for my sweeties for Valentine's Day. For those of you who don't know... I'm a Cleveland Browns' fan, and he is a Pittsburgh Steelers' fan. Yeah, we don't speak twice a year. And yes, I will hear the gloating on the Super Bowl win for the next year, at least.

Stamp Sets: Just Football, Rough Edges Alphabet
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, VersaMark
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, Real Red Prints DSP, Sale-a-Bration DSP
Accessories: Black embossing powder, Gold elastic cord
Punches: Full Heart, 3/4" Circle
Sizzix: Oval Scallop Frame Bigz die, Lots of Tags Label 1 Sizzlet
I printed the Steelers' seal on the computer and punched it out with the 3/4" Circle punch. This card was SUPER easy to make, but oh so appropriate for the two of us. My husband laughed hysterically, and then oooohed and aaaahhed at the autographed Steelers mini helmet that he got with it.
Well, we are off to spend some more time together before he leaves again tomorrow... until then, post your Valentine's Day adventures, and I will randomly draw Saturday (2/21/09) for the winner.

Wow, that's a lot of hits! Congrats to you!

Cute cards!!

My hubby and I went out to a coal-fired pizza place for lunch on Valentine's Day. It's to die for.

DH made a huge brunch and that evening we went to see a play put on at RepStage. Oh and I made cards for my 3 kids :) It was a fun day!

I just found your blog through the Stampin' Pretty website and watched your video for the perfect stay-put bow. I am new to card-making and will definitely be bookmarking you and checking back. Thanks for posting your beautiful cards to help inspire a novice! (Oh, and my hubby and I had the same Valentines-dinner at home and a movie, with a baby and a toddler just having a few minutes to talk "grown-up was a treat for us!)

Congrats on getting to 45,000 hits. I had a great Valentine's Day, spent the morning with a group of crafting buddies and the afternoon and evening with my DH. He grilled up steak and potatoes and it was delicious. Thanks for the chance to win. jmniffer
