Well, I finally got around to doing Vday stuff... seriously, I used to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Valentine's day stuff... this year for some reason just not as into it. More I'm distracted...

There are all these great stamps out there, and as they say, too many stamps, too little time. Yesterday, in avoidance of work, I was window-shopping around for stamps... so get this:

I want 10 sets from My Favorite Things truly, I just really 4 of them. And they give you free shipping for $40, but those particular 4 won't qualify me. Boo.

5 sets from Lizzie Anne total to $89 no free shipping... boo. I know I'm little late in the game to join, but they do have some fun stuff.

I want 4 sets from All That Scrap that's about $72, luckily they ship for free for any order over $10. Good thing is that these girls have tastes and also carry MFT & Lizzie Anne, so that free shipping bit is very very very helpful!

4 sets from Kim Hughes birdies total up as $70... don't think they have free shipping

Then, grand finale of them all, 12 sets from Paper Trey tally to $231. And yes, there is free shipping for orders over $40.

This is insane!!!! Cannot be.... I mean, I need stamps like I need a hole in my head, but seriously.... Gah!

Anyway, back to this card... This is my first Vday card of the year. It's good color combo, I think. But it is a tad muted. I was trying so hard not to buy more new stuff... so trying to work off what I have... So, I dug up my Making Memories Romance card set, and have had it. I like it... because it is almost saying thru that letter, loves me/loves me not... very appropriate. Hope you enjoy it.

I like your card- especially how you did the red heart.

I almost had a heart attack when I saw your window shopping until I went back and re-read that it was window shopping only!
