365 Days - Day 325, Imagine This
Crafty Creations #50
'Nobody knows the truffles I've seen!"
Yet, I could get used to having those kinds of 'truffles'! It was a very nice three day weekend here and I'm a little foggy about the days. The boys are in finals, or at least one of them. Patrick being a senior and no absences was exempt and has a ten day vacation. It's just a 3-day school week for the other with a four-day weekend coming up before the new semester. And we've had five days in the 60s! So, I've been enjoying the sunshine. But, as all good things must come to an end, rain is coming so I can get back to creating.
I remember making valentines as a little girl and doilies were always a staple. They are hard to come at least here in NC. I had to go to three craft stores before I found some and even then there were just a few in the cake decorating section. The one I used here was an old one I had in my supplies. The red fabric is a swatch I found at a craft store. I'm not much of a sewer, seeing as how it has taken me four years to make curtains for my bedroom and they are only half sewn. Yet, there are some really pretty fabric swatches for just a dollar or two that work well for patterned paper.
I originally started making this card for the PPA #25 challenge, but couldn't steal myself away from the nice weather long enough to make the deadline. So, I finished it for the 365 Cards Day 325 'Imgaine This' challenge theme of chocolate and the Crafty Creations challenge, texture, in which you had to use at least three different textures. I hope my doily, cotton fabric, velvet ribbon and slightly textured candy cardstock dies count for all the textures.
I fell in love with Flopsey the bunny when I won a challenge over at CPS a couple months ago and won a gift certificate to My Favorite Things. So, I have cupcake Flopsey and now Truffle Flopsey for Valentine's Day. I just looove those ears!

Tomorrow is a day full of creating! I NEVER get a midweek day for that so I'm soaking it up, especially since the rain is coming too, speaking of soaking.
