FAVORITE holiday!

Well, my FAVORITE holiday is Christmas, but I'm still stuck in a Valentine's Day card making mood so I'm gonna go with V-day:) Today, the Monday Challenge Chicks are creating cards based on our favorite holidays! Here's my card:

I decided to pull out my old faithful set "Always" by SU! for this card, that bird is one of my favorites! I used alot of odd's n' ends on this card but had tons of fun doing it!
Check out the rest of the girls' cards for some more inspiration:
Okay, the other card I made today is for today's CAS challenge on SCS! I would link the challenge thread here but as I type, SCS is not co-operating with me, I hope it's not just me but I havent' been able to get in for a couple hours! HORRORS! OMG I am so dependent on that site it's rediculous, lol! I GOTTA HAVE MY FIX!
Anyhoo, the CAS challenge for this week is to use ONE button! CHECK! Not a problem for this chick because I love me some buttons! The challenge was in only using ONE, lol! Well here's my card:

The card base is a piece of Chocolate Chip. I stamped the tree and sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers (SU!) on a piece of Whisper White and then mounted it on a piece of Kiwi Kiss that I also trimmed using my scalloped edge punch! The ribbon was tied on with one lonely button (lol!) and then I added a row of brads as well. I finished the card off by stamping the scallops (from All Scallops by SU!) on top in Whisper White. I am not much of a CAS stamper as you well know, but I had alot of fun with this card and I'm going to be participating in these CAS challenges alot, I just know it:)

Christy and I (and her hubs and a couple other peeps) went to see The Tales of Despereaux today. It was just okay for me, kinda cute, the mouse was *adorable* but the story was just kinda blah. I'm glad I went though, it was still fun:) Billy and I are sittin here with a glass of wine watching Cars, LOL! I love this movie, 'Mater is my favorite, I love him:D
Have a fantastic President's Day, later taterz!
