Valentine and Spring, But Where oh Where are the Blue Skies and Sunshine?

You many NEVER hear me say things again, but I am officially sick of rainy, dreary days! I need sunshine and blue skies! I've tried everything I can think of to get it to stop raining: refrained from washing my car, over dress with all the warm clothing I own everywhere I go, and carry my umbrella with me constantly. Here in the deep south, we always need rain. In fact we've had several years of drought, but I just can't help it, I am sick to death of rain and gray skies. It reminds me of the years we lived in Michigan. No offense to anyone who lives there, but I found all that rain to be depressing. We moved there when I was a teenager, and I moved to South Carolina before I even finished college. I shouldn't complain, what about the poor peach farmers????

The first card uses a stamp set from SALE-A-BRATION. It's one of the things you can get for free, every $50 you spend.

AFTER I made the Valentines' Day card, it occurred to me I should have used the Heart Embosslits!!  I love how they cut and emboss all at once, and the little embosslit has different size hearts and patterns too:)
