Yes! a Valentine. I had to jaunt down to the dollar store today to pick up some loaf pans for the Bazillion Banana Breads that I will be baking as soon as I'm done blogging.

Well, as you know, the most Industrious of cardmakers work ahead! If I was truly working ahead, i'd probably be working on Christmas cards still, but alas, I LOVE hearts and could create Valentine's cards 24-7

I really too the CLEAR Element to heart and rather than making a card, I whipped up a couple of Christmas Ornaments using my IO Die cuts and Clear Plastic Christmas Balls.
I first saw the idea for the Christmas Ornament on Papertrey Ink however I knew that I could make my own with my existing Dies
