Month number 2!

 The first one done, the month that is. are you ready for #2? It almost seems like we are just counting things these days! How many days, months, years until... how many people can you see, visit, hug? Tommy and I are counting how many cruises we have had planned and canceled. We are waiting for number 6! It's scheduled in May for Alaska. I really want to go. Today I'm counting birthday cards I need to make. I forgot how many events I need to prepare for in February! I have a grandson and daughter with birthdays this month, a  good friend turning 80!!! Also, one of my closest friends birthday is at the end of the month, not to mention Valentine's Day. I know a lot of people don't like Valentine's Day, but I love it. I think of it like Thanksgiving, a day set to be thankful. This is a day set apart to tell the people in your life "I Love You"! I realize this is not the " normal" definition of Valentine's Day, but I'm rarely considered normal!

Here's a sample of a card I made for a tutorial coop I am part of this year. I'm using the stamp set Ridiculously Awesome, which is the inspiration of Ronda Wade for her Millon Dollar achievers Stamp set. Inside it has stamped PS I love you! A perfect card for letting someone special know they are loved and important to you. And easy, this card requires ink, paper, and stamps with a piece of ribbon thrown in because I love ribbon!
