Today is another CBC Challenge day, and this week's challenge is to make a masculine Valentine card. I *finally* got around to using one of my new images from Artistic Outpost's Cutie Pie set. Isn't he just adorable?! I love him! Both the main image, and the "XOXO" stamp is from that set. I really wish I had a little football charm that I could have hung from the bow, but unfortunately I don't. I hate it when that happens. And the kicker of it all, is that I'm sure at some point in my crafting life I've held a football charm in my hand at a store, and thought Nah... I'll never use that. *smacks forehead*
Anyhow! lol! Be sure to click over to the other chicks blogs (located in my sidebar) to see what everyone else came up with this week. If you decide to play along, be sure to link your creation back to Courtney's blog for a chance to win a little prize.
I also am sad to say that this will be my last week as a CBC Chick. *sniff* I recently decided to resign my position on the team (it was an indefinite term) in an effort to achieve more balance in life between stamping and my other hobbies. I'll miss playing along each week, but will hold on to the friendships I've made, and am very thankful for all of them!
One of those many hobbies I need more time for is reading. I love to read - always have. I usually have two books going at one time. One of the two is a novel, something that I have to stick with and want to read regularly because when I read it's like watching a movie in my head. I can literally see it all unfolding in my mind (and for the record, the mini-movie in my head is always infinitely better than anything they decide to put on the big screen with the same title). The second book I keep in Jack's nursery, and I read a few pages while I'm nursing him before naptime and bedtime every day. I'm happy to report that after ten months at a few pages a day, I've finally finished my "upstairs book"! Woot!
Enjoy the day!
