Do You Remember the Sea of Love?

Happy New Year!!!!!

If you have been in any stores looking for after Christmas sales, you have probably seen some Valentine's Day items out on the shelves. Well, it is that time of year for stampers, too, to get started on making Valentine's Day cards and treats. This year A Muse has set a course on the high seas to deliver something exciting and new ... the Sea of Love!





Today, I get to introduce to you a new little critter, an adorable jellyfish. It is such a cute little guy, you'd almost forget it would sting you! There are some other fun sea life images with this release with great sentiments (naturally!) that you are sure to have some fun. If you look around at the other CT members' blogs, you might find them.

A little story to go with this card: Since our big blizzard on Dec. 18-19, my kids have been home. They had to cancel the last three days of school before Winter Break because the roads and schools were not clear. So, I had lots to do while trying to keep my kids busy and happy. My oldest daughter cam looking for something to do while I was making up cards for amuse-bouche. So, I had her help me with the paper punches to make the hearts and she got a bit carried away and I ended up with enough to make the line of double hearts. I think she has leftovers that she'll be able to use for her own Valentine's Day cards. Lesson learned: put those kids to work if they come into your crafty space!
