Happy Valentine's Day!
I used to think that Valentine's Day was all about me and the man I loved. Well, didn't I have Valentine's Day before I found him? And because he happens to not be with me, does that mean that Valentine's Day isn't a day for me to celebrate any longer or has to wait until I find another man to share my life with? Well, I say I can valentine whoever I chose! Some friends and I were talking on how we were celebrating Valentine's Day. Some are watching movies, some going out to dinner. Some are spending time with their loved one and some of us are crafting and hanging out with our four legged fur babies. The latter would be me!
Yep, it's me and Hagrid on Valentine's Day! My girls are always so wonderful and my two oldest now have babies as well as husband's for valentines. I did get some candy (Reece's hearts and Lindt's milk chocolate truffles, the absolutely best!), socks and my favorite shoes - Adidas sandals. I ordered a pepperoni calzone (my Valentine's dinner), a whoppie pie (my Valentine's Day chocolate), and slipped some crust to Hagrid, my stuffed animal. My bouquet was my Prima flowers that I put stickles on and my jewelry is the pearls on the corners and flower centers. The man, well, that's going to be Daniel Craig in "Her Majesty's Secret Service", which I fell asleep on last week when I wasn't feeling well.
This Tilda is from the Magnolia Valentine's Day collection. Summer at Roses on Paper has a fabulous selection of Magnolias as well as Sarah Kays and some new The Greeting Farm stamps. I used the Sketch Saturday plunge and followed their sketch. I loved it! The paper is from Basic Grey and I love the heart circle stamp from Alota Rubber Stamps. I havr such fun with my Magnolias and I hope you enjoy her.
While you're enjoying Tilda, enjoy the loved ones around you, in whatever form they may take. Appreciate them, love them, and cherish them for all they bring to your life.
