Sweet Snuggle Valentine

Wow, what crazy weather we've been having!  It has been snowing and blowing like crazy since Monday night and right now we are in the midst of a Blizzard Warning, a Civil Emergency Warning and a Severe Winter Advisory Warning (not sure why we need all of those, but....).  The kids have the day off school, so I think I will have them work on some DI projects .   

The Greeting Farm had a CHA Relay Challenge posted yesterday and it sounded like a lot of fun, so I decided that I was going to participate in it.  We had to go on a "scavenger hunt" and find the 10 ingredients that needed to be included on our project.  I decided to make a Valentines Day Card for one of my daughter's and this is what I ended up with: 
Not your typical Valentine's Day card, but my kids were always big cuddlers (both with me and stuffed animals) so I thought this image was perfect to use.   I followed the sketch over at Midnight Madness.  After my sewing issues the other day, I was afraid to try it again, but no problems this time.  However, I forgot to close the cover on my buttons (which are nicely sorted by color in a divided case), you see where this is going???.....I hit the corner of it and knocked it on the floor, and yep, buttons everywhere.....ugh!!!  After getting those picked up and resorted, my ATG decides to run out of tape....and then the new tape ended up least I finally got it done, and I am really happy with it (although I just remembered that I have a "Love" ticket that would look great on here, think I need to see if I can add it in somewhere).
