Happy Wednesday!

Its mid-week and time for another crafty blog share. When I closed on Monday, I promised I would share my Valentine page with you. My darling husband had brought home roses and mini cupcakes last Friday evening and left me a little Valentine message in Sunday's paper. He's a real keeper! I took photos since my flowers and cupcakes will not last long and created this page.

Guess what? I posted this page on Two Peas in a Bucket yesterday and it was picked for the featured project of the day! Woot woot! There's nothing like seeing your work recognized! And it's so cool that all the wonderful things my honey did made this the special page it is!

My next share is a baby card I made last weekend.

I'm amazed at the number of cards I've made using just a few pieces of patterned paper from the Letterbox line by American Crafts. The adorable little clothesline accent on my card is from American Crafts' newest Dear Lizzy collection. I love it!

Now I'd like tos share a  book with you that I picked up on Monday called 'The Lovely Bones.' I read the first paragraph and was hooked.

The first paraghraph reads, "My name was Salmon; like the fish, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973. In newspaper photos of missing girls from the seventies, most looked like me: white girls with mousy brown hair. This was before kids of all races and genders started appearing on milk cartons or in the daily mail. It was still back when people believed things like that didn't happen."

So that's a wrap for my Wednesday post! I've got a lot of crafting to do since a whole bunch of new digital kits came out at Two Peas in a Bucket yesterday and I'm going to make a lot of fun projects with them and will share them with you Friday! Probably some next Monday too!
