Happy Monday!  Today is a big day here at the Cheever household . . . we are finally getting a new hot water heater and water softener!!! From Millan.Net It has been years since we’ve had a working water softener and I truly can’t wait . . . no more LemiShine, calcium buildup on the faucets, dry itchy skin . . .From Millan.Net

It’s also my day to post over on the Quietfire Creations Blog. I’ve worked up another Valentine’s Day card using some old MME paper and a very old favorite layout.  (I can’t remember the last time I used this layout on a card.)


You can find all the details and more photos on the Quietfire Creations Blog, so I hope you’ll join me over there!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope y’all have a fabulous day!

I know I’m a few days late ringing the new year with you, but better late than never.  I spent the first running around to junk stores with my mom and sister.  Got some great buys and had a fabulous day!  We ended up at Cracker Barrel for lunch and of course, they were serving black-eyed peas.  Now they are not one of my favorites, but in the hopes of changing my luck for the upcoming year that I had to indulge a tiny bit!  My sister said they tasted like dirty feet . . . I have to agree . . . but I still ate a few spoonful’s.  All I can say, is that the grilled chicken and baked sweet potato tasted a hell of a lot better!

Today is my day to post over on the Quietfire Creations Blog!  I’m sharing a chipboard plaque that I made using one of the newly released companion sets, This Heart Longing for You.


All the details and more pictures can be found on the designers’ blog, Quietfire Creations.  I hope you’ll stop by and take a peak!

Thanks for joining me here today!

Good morning and happy Monday!  Are you ready for 2013 to be over?  I know I am!  It’s been a pretty tough year around here but I’m happy to report that things are finally on an upswing.    Now I just have to get my mojo going in the same direction!

I’ve worked in the studio all weekend and sadly only ended up with a couple of cards.  One I showed you Saturday and the other I have today.  I had these great ideas but when I started to get them going, everything ended up in the trash.  Saturday night I walked away from it all and just threw my hands up.  Sunday afternoon I headed back in with nothing in mind at all and decided to go through my paper stash to find some inspiration.

Here’s what I came up with . . .

QFD Valentine

Digging deep into the paper stash I found an old pad of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Blush and the colors hit me right away!  So I figured why not a Valentine’s Day card.

I picked out some coordinating sheets and started the distressing and sponging (Antique Linen).  I really liked the dress form on the one sheet and didn’t want to cover it up, so everything was placed at the top of the card.

QFD Valentine CloseUP

The flower were die cut/embossed from other sheets of the paper pad with Spellbinders® Bitty Blossoms.  The leaves were die cut from watercolor paper with Foliage and then inked with Peeled Paint.  Buried deep under it all is a frame made from chipboard that was die cut with Labels Four.  I didn’t realize that I ended up covering the whole damn thing up until I took the picture, but hopefully you can see a little bit poking out at the top and bottom.  The sentiment, Quietfire Design Valentine’s 2013, was stamped in Coffee and then die cut/embossed with Ovals LG.  While the paper was still in the die template it was sponged with Antique Linen.

QFD Valentine Left

I guess that’s all for me right now!  Hopefully I’ll be back in soon with another project . . . in the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
