a shiny bookmark and a Valentine atc . . .

First, let me show you the shimmer:
nice and frosty looking, right?  

Now tell me, do you like curling up with a good book on a cold winter day?
(She's from the Relish Reading set at Rogue Redhead Designs)
This young lady does, but she tried to carry too many books, and now 
 they're all blowing out of her hands!

And here is a little atc Valentine--

I have to tell you, it feels good to be making stuff again . . .
So maybe a few challenges:
with the shimmery blue bookmark:
Rogue Redhead Designs--Winter Blues
Stampotique--challenge 83, New Year's Resolution (read more!)
Drunken Stampers Challenge--all that glitters
Crafty Catz--anything but a card
Dillybeans--bookmark!
It's All About the Vintage--winter feelings

with the atc sized Valentine card:
Frilly and Funkie--follow your muse.  (First time for an atc with a pin full
of charmish stuff attached, and the first atc I made that opens from bottom
to top, if that makes sense!)
Allsorts--flower power
ATCS and cards with attitude--add a tag or sentiment/anything goes
Sparkle and Glitter--anything but a square
Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge--embellish it

I'm glad you are making stuff again, too, Trisha! That "feel good" feeling you get is priceless.

Thank you for coming by, even w/o WOYWW, and leaving happy anniversary wishes for me and Mister! We were quite overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and are so appreciative!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend and that I see you next week at WOYWW! Darnell #64
