A Valentine Post

I finished the Valentine's Day cards for work ~ Yippee! These are
 the cards the babies will be giving their parents at the NICU I work
 at.  I also made little candy tents to hold Hershey hugs and kisses ~ 
super simple.  I am trying to use up some of my stash of
non-PTI and non-SU papers this year.  The red paper for the 
tents is from this stash of paper.   The die I used for the cards
is "new," so I am entering these at Addicted to CAS.  I did make 
one more card using the same layout and die, but with a
minimum of patterned paper.  I am entering this one at CASology 
 for their cue word of "contrast."  One more "to do" crossed
off my list, now I can start the St. Patrick's Day cards for work ;).

This weekend my son's wrestling team had their home tournament,
so yesterday was a long day.  I volunteered before and after the times 
he wrestled. I am happy to say that he took second.  This is the 
best he has done this year.  They usually wrestle in 5 man brackets,
so fifth place is last.  He has had 2 fifths and one fourth place so 
far this year.
