Sending Love

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

It's the Friday before Valentine's day. We went out last night for our Valentine dinner. We thought the restaurants might be a bit crowded and we wouldn't be able to get a reservation on Friday or Saturday. So we went last night and had a very delicious dinner and an enjoyable evening. 

We picked an Italian restaurant near our home that is famous for it's Virginia spots. I can tell you that they are delicious served with a lemon cream sauce. My husband enjoyed Chicken Romano- something else that is their specialty.  

Then my neighbor sent over some red velvet cupcakes earlier in the day with a delicious butter cream icing. So we came home and had those for dessert. I will give hubs his card either tomorrow or Sunday.  I already posted it on my Blog previously. You can take a look here

Now onto my card for today. This one I made and sent to a friend of mine. It's a Gal-entines card. I didn't have any sentiments that reflected that so I used what I had. I read about Gal-entines Day a few years ago and I really liked the concept. That way we can send cards to our girl friends particularly those who don't have a guy to do that.  

This one is part of the January Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kit. Their kits have everything you need to either create cards or 3D projects. The mail box and corner stamping was preprinted. So I just added the little snail at the bottom and stamped my sentiment. It's part of the Stitched Garden Friends die from CottageCutz. 

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
