Valentine Week

Can you believe how fast we are going right into 2015? I can't believe it's Valentine's week already .
I have been playing in the studio with Valentine cards I have made in years past. Some of them went into the shredder yesterday. Some just weren't worthy to keep however I had kept them 5 years or more.
I was going to call in sick today from work and stay home and made new cards and just play in the studio then I thought about a trip I'm trying to save money for so got ready and went into work like a good girl. LOL ( or good senior lady)

This is one of my all time favorite cards I made once.
I had bought the big B to make my sister Becky a card but this what I came up with for the big B .

This is hanging from a make do chandelier over my work table, I have chains and all kinds of items I like to look at while working in the studio, It's a total wreck now because I am packing up items to sell at the Indoor Garage Sale this Sunday at The the Holiday Inn convention center Feb 8th 1 -4 Pm.
I would like to take a lot of paper items I have for card making but you just never know what people will buy. Last year I thought I took a bunch of my vintage odds and ends and  junk and it sold like hot cakes LOL  

This is my little romantic gal with her jeweled crown on  I Like this card a lot also, she was safe from the shredder . 

I had to play with the old vintage Bingo cards also, this avoided the shredder also. I always like making cards from vintage papers and items and I was invited to join in a card group,then realized they only wanted cards made with Tim Holtz design in their click so I was not ask back Boo Hoo not for me for those gals LOL I love Tim Holtz items but they are very expensive to collect
The little paper dolls was in a magazine I use to collect and loved it and not being published anymore, what was the name of that magazine ? she always had a set of paper dolls in each issue, was it Home Companion ? 

Linky parties i'm in 

Well I better get to work and make some mad money to spend foolishly
