Hi friends! Happy Heart Day! It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been desperately wanting to get inky... BUT these two little munchkins have been sick and I've had my hands full. It's so sad to see them struggling to breathe. Trevor's had the worst of it and you can definitely tell his weight is down when you see him next to Kellan. Hard to believe they're already 11 months old and I'm in the midst of planning their first birthday party!
I did make a birthday card last weekend for my dad (who's a Valentine's Day baby). We celebrated his and Mark's birthday (which is tomorrow) on Sunday. I was trying to go for clean & simple, but somehow that mixed media grunge just wormed its way in and I had to keep going with it. :) Not sure if my dad appreciated the grunge or not, but there wasn't time to make another and my birthday card stash is seriously depleted!
The stamps are all from the Borderline set and I used the coordinating Mini Classy Label die set and added some wood veneer stars, Hemptique thread and a bunch of distressing. Papers are from the Scoot line by Echo Park.
Oh and before I forget.. there's some exciting news over on the Verve blog today! So go check it out! Hope you have a fantastic Valentine's Day!

I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years.
