Happy Monday, family!!!

I FINALLY got out of the house today!!!  It felt wonderful!!!  I was actually beginning to feel like a prisoner in my own home!!!  Yes, I'm feeling so much better; unfortunately, the hubby is going through a bad time right now.  Being that he is, I will be going tomorrow to my BFF's home to play with making melt and pour soap (instead of her waiting to come here).  She wants me to show her how to make a batch of soap from scratch-- after the holiday, I'm not sure I'm up to it but I guess if she's going to show me how she makes melt and pour soap, I'll have to show her how to make soap.  I should come home with soap bars already made tomorrow while she'll have to wait until her batch becomes solid and then she'll have to cut them into bars!  I don't think she really knows what she's getting into but I'm going to show her!  We should have fun though!

Well, I actually did manage to get a project completed for today.  It was really simple in that the gable  box is actually on the Spring Holiday Cards cart -- all I did was cut it out at 3", decorate it and made a matching card:

This is the tall version of the box, there is also a wide version on the cart.

The res hearts on the card and box reads, "Valentine, you are special"; however, the wording got a bit blurred under 3 coats of Glossy Accents.  The sweet little bunny I found on the internet. 

I entered this project in the "Keys to My Heart" challenge at http://opus-gluei.blogspot.com/ 

Well, that's all for now...

I'll be seeing you!

So glad you are feeling better. Since I've been reading your posts backwards, it is weird reading how you were looking forward to the "soap making" day knowing how it already turned out. On second thought, go ahead and kick her! LOL Love your Valentine project. Such cute images. Best, Curt
