Masculine Valentine's Card

Here is my masculine valentine's card that I will be placing in the mail to a few of male buddies including good ole dad. Making masculine cards for me is sometimes a little challenging but I gave it a try and can't wait to see what a few of them will say. I know one in particular who is going to think my card is worth a million dollars my dad. But great dads encourage their kids even at my age.

Where Have I Been?

Where I have been lately? I recently had the flu for 10 horrible days and really couldn't do much of anything. It felt like I was alive but really dying. I am just glad that I had several people that brought me food even though I wasn't able to eat it all. I would nibble and that was about it. My energy level is back and I am up and moving around. This flu that is out is no joke at all. Of course, the weather at the time wasn't helping it either. So be careful because the flu bug is out there.

Pay It Forward

I participated in this status challenge on Facebook and it was called pay it forward. I had to copy and paste the status to my status and get 5 people that would participate in making and sending our 5 handmade gifts. Being the crafter that I am I couldn't pass this challenge up. I made a very quick but cute thank you card. My scanner isn't scanning working correctly I think it is dying.
