I really need to start scheduling my posts as soon as I make my cards. (you know, instead of the day before. *koff*) I'm really late to the party. This weekend my computer started giving me problems. Problems as in I couldn't link to anything. Nothing. Nada. Monday, it completely crashed on me. I was NOT happy, and when Momma isn't happy, ain't NOBODY happy!! Luckily, I'm married to a programmer (I.T. Guy) who, after working hard all day trying to fix glitches in the office software, and trying not to kill any number of the company's outside sales reps (who I swear throw their laptops off of high buildings then take it in to Andy and ask him why it won't work and can you fix it?), comes home to his frazzled wife bitching about politely asking if he could work on our computer and fix it. Luckily he could, but not until yesterday. Today I was working for the little blue haired lady I care for and haven't been around all day until now. So, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Now that I'm off my soapbox, I'll bet you'd like to see what I made for the new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH? (Which, as the title suggests, is to make a LOVE-themed project.) 

 here's the inside:

Using the now over with Freshly Made Sketch #170, I made a Valentine's Day card. Except for the larger heart dies, everything used is at least a year old. The rhinestone swirls are probably close to 4 years old. (Hoarder? Me?) I even Frankensteined the bits and pieces I had left together. (A term  that Lauren brought to my attention that I've fully embraced.) ☺

With VD approaching (the holiday, you silly!), now's the time to get your card or project made. Just link it up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see it! While there, check out what my amazing teammates created for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for stopping by, and again sorry for the delay! Have a wonderful day!

  1. Your story must be true, who'd make that up? :D Glad your computer woes have been sorted out. This is sweet and blingy and beautiful!

  2. I ALWAYS schedule my posts so I can forget about them and be pleasantly surprised when my stuff posts on time. :D

    Love love love the swirls of bling. And welcome to my world of expired sketches. It's still a sketch though, right? Pffth on the link-up.

  3. You'll have to give this sweet card to your hubby for fixing your computer troubles! ;) It's adorable! Loving your Frankensteined bling!

  4. All those fabulous jewels on your card! Someone must really rank to receive that card. It has much awesomeness. My hubby does QA and knows enough about computers to know to hate their very soul. I just hate asking him to troubleshoot computer issues.

  5. I love the bling! Very nicely done!

  6. This is a beautiful Valentines, I love it.
