Valentine's M&M Stix

Good afternoon!!!
We are having a beautiful day here in South Texas! The sun is shining and it's cool but not cold. So..you think with the sunshine I'd have tons of energy today...well, I don't. I've been so lazy it's silly!!!

I did work on some stuff yesterday, and would like to share with you a super cute Valentine's Day treat. I can also see these for any special occasion!

I got this idea off of another blog, but my mind is blank right now, and I can't remember the name. So sorry.

Please forgive my "unprofessional" photos. I have a new computer, but it didn't come with any photo editting software, so I didn't get to crop them. I'm hoping when my college son gets home, he can help me out with this! LOL

Here they are:
On these, I used some mini valentine digi images from Whimsiedoodles. This is from last years collection.

On these, I used some layered, felt hearts I found at Hobby Lobby.
I bought these bags, measuring 1x8 online from:

Tomorrow, I'd like to show you a card I'm working on using today's new releases by

Have a wonderful Thursday!

More Inspiration from Meljen's Designs!!

Well, I've got GOOD news and I've got BAD news. I'll give you the GOOD news first!
It's Tuesday!!! So I've got some wonderful cards to show you from Meljen's Design Team!! They are all so awesome!
Now for the BAD news. My computer is still "shot", not working, nada!! The ONLY thing I can do is get on the internet. My hard drive is "non accessible" and so are all of my Windows programs, files, etc.  So I haven't been able to post any new pictures, cards, or play along with our wonderful Meljen's Design Team. {{sigh}}

I've been so sad. I did look at new computers yesterday. And I narrowed down to 2 computers. I now just need the "go ahead" from hubby that we can afford a new computer. You see, my oldest got really sick at the beginning of December, so we have stacking medical bills. Not fun! Thank God he will be fine, but now to dish out the $$ for tests. :(

So please bare with me...I've been working on some super cute Valentine's projects and cannot wait to share them with you!!!



For now...here's some inspiration from Meljen's Designs DT Blog.

And please send good thoughts my way that I may get a NEW computer  VERY, VERY soon!!! Thank you!!!
