Happy First Monday of 2010 to you all! Wow, another work week is upon us--it was soooo nice to have some time off but unfortunately it only lasts so long! This month is jam packed with things including some fun announcements, new releases, blog hops & my trip to CHA at the end of the month. Makes me tired just thinking about it all, hee hee! It has been in the 10's degree wise here in VA with winds gusting up to 50 mph and I'm am sooo OVER winter, lol--I'm hoping it's alot warmer in CA when I visit for CHA or I'll be mad :o)!! Well it's got to be warmer than 10 degrees, right? right? LOL! At this rate my Xmas decorations will be up outside until spring if it doesn't get warmer (my neighbors will love that, NOT)! Alrighty, enough chitter-chat from me today! I posted yesterday too with a new Lockhart Stamp (from the new collection) so if you missed that, it's below this post!!

You can visit the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE to get all the details & instructions on how to make these!
As soon as I saw this piano stamp I knew I would use it first because I am dying to get a piano of my own, hee hee---I'm asking hubby to get me (err..umm..us?lol) a piano for our anniversary this year! I loved playing the piano when I was younger & want to take lessons again---it is a total dream item for me! I used K&Co's "Smitten" papers (love this pack) and then I embossed the background cs with my CB hearts folder for texture. The sentiment is from a Flourishes set I have and then I 'faked' a ruffle trim on the inside using sheer ribbon (lined the inside frame w/ Scor-tape and then pleated the ribbon and adhered to the tape--ta-da, ya get a ruffle)! The rose on top of the piano I made--I snipped a small prima flower in half and then rolled it, attached some leftover wire with scor-tape and laid on top of piano (genius right, hee hee)!
HERE) and then I added stardust stickles to the roses for sparkle!
diamond glaze and some stickles on the back of the piano & her lace ruffle trim. A romantic Valentines Card for someone special in your life!! (Copics Used: Piano-E49,E47,E44,E42/Dress-R85,R83,R81,R46,R43)
See ya tomorrow!
