i + u...

...SomeOddGirl.

I also heart my bloodtransfusing and breathenhancing friends (you know who you are), Mexico (dang, I wanna go back there NOW!), my DH (who keeps me somewhat sane and makes sure I get my daily dose of laughter and hugs), my family (including the "brand-spanking-new" chewmonster my sister and her DH are successfully trying to turn into a well-behaved dog) and gorgeous flowers (which is why I'm happy that I've got some Petaloo coming soooon and that I got a GC for flowers from my beloved almostgrandma).

I heart one thing in particular:
Noticing the good stuff and people, and making sure they know they've been noticed.
There's no use not telling people you admire, love and/or treasure them. There might be no tomorrow. Go. Leave those dishes and dustbunnies for another day. Do the things that matter. Show your love, laugh, hug, build snowforts and make snow angels, take lots of photos and have a cup of cocoa with REAL whipped cream and/or marschmallows.
That's what life's about.

Card made for a challenge at SOG, where you are to make a Valentines project without relying on the pinks and reds.
Here's my result:

You are SO right - we take too many things for granted and I have made a vow for this year to spent most my time to show my appreciation to lovely things and people.

And you my girl are one of the people I appreciate a lot. I may not comment on every blog post you do, but consider yourself noticed *smilez*

Oh and that card?
Ace...as always

Hello. Lovely post, you are so right.

I have to ask, how do you give away your beautiful cards? I don't think I could part with them if they were mine. Each one is so beautiful and obvioulsy very time consuming.
Happy New Year to you xxx
