Ain't Love Grand by Stampin Up and me

We're so excited, our littlest one is so close to being potty trained. She loves the happiness that happens after she pees on the potty. We all dance and cheer for her, give her kisses and spoil her with a little candy. I love it. I just had to show you. Aint Love Grand.. yes indeed!

Here I used the Top Note die from Stampin Up in my Big Shot. After I rolled the orange card stock through the Big Shot machine for the first time, I turned it about 90 degrees and rolled it again through my Big Shot. Then I ended up with this masterpiece. I am sure you have seen it before, but this is the first time I have tried it out. So simple, but so fun!

Hi dear everyone.

Happy Valentines Day to you on this 14th of February 2012. I hope you got spoiled by your kids, hubby or dear friends.. Our oldest daugther has been creating pictures for the last 2 weeks for all her class mates. She was so thrilled this morning that it was finally the BIG DAY to hand them out to them. I hope her friends will take the time to thank her.. I find that part can be overlooked so fast when they receive so many on a day like this.. (I know.. I am a mom.. I think of those things...) it would be to bad, right. She has been working so hard on all the little Valentines cards. She is the sweetest little girl, who just loves to make others happy. I think that I receive about 5 different pictures each day from her and she gets so excited, she almost gets radiant with her huge smile. I love her!

All that to say :).. on to my card for the day. I used the sketch Challenge that Mary Fish created for the Mojo Monday Challenge #228 today and I loved working with it. I combined it with 'Our Creative Corner theme Challenge: 'Best Friend'. I know.. what a great theme.

So there you go.. My card. I hope you will enjoy it.

Have a great evening.

Inky hugs, Pauline
