Jesus Is My Valentine
by: Susan Y Nikitenko
Jesus is my Valentine;
I talk to Him each day.
He never, never leaves me;
and always listens when I pray.
Yes He is my Valentine;
there is no love like His.
He is the heart of all that is;
for Him I breathe and live.
He's a Valentine that never lies;
never hurts or breaks.
He always has forgiven me;
for all my past mistakes.
If you only knew my Valentine;
You would love Him too.
For His love is always perfect;
His love is always true.
So if your heart is longing;
for a love that never ends.
for someone that is faithful;
you know you can depend.
call upon my Valentine;
He'll wash away your sin.
He will be your Valentine;
and your dearest, dearest friend.

One of my favorite Valentines Parties from last year was the on Kate from And Everything Sweet created for her two little girls' Valentines playdate. I love the sweet little owl and all the details..... Kate is such a creative whiz!

I had a rather crazy day, lots of errands, a follow up appointment for my hand surgery that took much longer than expected (everything is fine - they were just really backed up...) and lots of other last minute things to do before I leave for Germany on Thursday.
I had planned to post something new that I just designed. I didn't get a chance to do the test cut so I thought I'd give a link back to a simple and cute treat holder I made for Valentine's Day a couple of years ago. You will find the full post with the directions and file for making the treat holder HERE.
In the same post you'll find the file and directions for making these heart lanterns...
...and a card you can make with the "leftovers."
It's hard to believe how quickly January has flown by. It really doesn't feel like winter this year - the temperature was in the mid 50's today and nearly all of the snow is gone again.
I hope to get a little crafting time in on Wednesday - but the packing has to be done first!
This is taking longer than usual. Try reloading the page.

This A2 sized Valentine card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") came together in a snap once I got my sizing figured out.
A tip for the newbies: Use the Fit to Length feature key on your Expression or Create to get just the right size you need on a project. I used that to determine what size to cut the label shape behind the birds.
Speaking of label shapes, can you believe this one came from the Twinkle Toes Lite cartridge? Be sure to look at your cartridges carefully - there are lots of labels and shapes on there that are parts of other images. This one was supposed to say "Tiny Dancer", if you cut all the layers.
The love birds ("loveb") are from the Holiday Cakes cartridge and cut at 1-1/2". Remember that the Cake cartridges work in any of the machines and you can use the images to cut paper. Silver gems and glittered big brads are from Hobby Lobby. In the photo, it looks like the birds have wiggle eyes - they don't! The eyes are actually silver solid gems.
I added a red button on my bow, then tied it with Martha Stewart baker's twine and added my sentiment from Papertrey Ink. Button and ribbon by Papertrey Ink.
A finishing touch on the inside and we're done! Paper was by Core'dinations and Basic Grey's Bittersweet line.
Don't forget that we are giving away the New Testament Cricut Cartridge!

To make this candy purse, you will need the purse shape (red marquee shape, I designed this in CCR using CraftRoom Basics so the holes for the ribbon are cut with the shape), the layer (pink flower print), a little embellishment (the heart), 6 inches of 1/4 inch wide ribbon, a lollipop bag and candy.
Glue the layer onto the purse shape and score just along the right side of the rectangles.
Add a small line of double stick tape below the rectangles.
Thread the ribbon through one slot and press it into the tape. Then repeat for the other side.
Put your candy in the lollipop bag and fold the sides in so it's smaller at the top and fold the top down and staple closed.
Place the candy bag on the purse shape and fold the flap over and staple through all layers.
Add your embellishment to cover the staple on the front and you're done!
If you'd like the .ccr file for this project, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll send it to you! :)
