This banner I made for Chinese New Year. My mom got really sentimental when she saw this. My dad (who recently passed) used to write these out for the New Year. No such thing as an electronic die cutting machine in the old days. This tradition has been passed down. I really miss him and this helps me keep him in my memories.

Made this super simple card from my stash. Bee was cut from Create a Critter at 3" and layered. Added "V-day" stamp to it and cut out heart from Spring Holiday Cards at 2.25". Added a blue ribbon to make it more masculine looking. Hope he likes it.
I dread doing this project each year. This year, even my little one in Preschool has to do this project. At least my oldest tells me that he will do it on his own with the Cuttlekids. Phew..... That is one less project I have to do. Anywho, figuring we've had so much snow this year, I made "snowballs" with snowflakes. Used DonJuan cart (remember that old cart?) cut snowflakes at 1" and used Mickey Font for the "100" in the middle cut at 3" and shadow at 3". Cut 4" circles from Mini Monograms. Super easy to make but gluing down all those snowflakes was a PITA. Good thing my little one was there to help out.
