A little Dino-Love for Valentines Day

I'm not sure about you girlz, but when I saw the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection, I absolutely fell in love with it.  And even better, it was perfect for Colin's Valentine's Cards for his special people.
I thought this was perfect for Colin because he LOVES purple and Dinosaurs.

Paper - Basic Grey, Sugar Rush; Cardstock - Lt. Blue, Orange & Purple
Technique - MCPT
Cricut - Circle & Heart (Plantin Schoolbook)
Miscellaneous - Stickles, DMC floss & Computer Sentiment - Scrap Baby Font
The heart actually spins - first one I've done like this.
The card actually says - Dino-Dragons are Purple, their hearts are shiny Blue, Happy Valentines Day from Colin & Natalie to You!
And I thought I'd also share the excitement we had last week - on Thursday afternoon we got a call that my friend Amy was indeed in labor, so off we went to get my nephew Colin from school.  So, at 7:30 we got a call that Colin's precious baby sister Natalie had arrived (and much smaller than expected - only 7 pounds, 15 ounces.
So, Friday night after work, Glen and I took Colin up to the hospital to see his baby sister.  So we've had a few chances for baby lovin and it's GREAT!  Just something about a new baby.
Not the greatest photo (we were trying to get an excited little boy to try & post for the camera).
And here's one of just her - isn't she precious?
So, that's the excitement in our lives lately.
Today we're getting snow - the first big storm of the winter here in Michigan - we're supposed to get 6-10" by the time all is said and done....I know, nothing compared to the snow those of you in the New England area have got or are getting.
Glad I'm having a snow day tomorrow - while it looks nice, it's not my favorite thing to drive in (so I'll spend the day in my studio!)
Happy Craftin'! 


  1. Min, the card is just adorable! I love how the purple dino is shooting his arrow at the heart. Very cool. And the photos of the new baby and big brother are just wonderful. What a BEAUTIFUL baby! Enjoy your studio time.

  2. Thanks Shelly! I think so too but I'm a bit partial!

    Cards came out so cute Min! Thanks again sooo much for doing.

    The wiggly big brother pic is funny. Hoping to download tons of pix today myself.



Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little sliver of Paradise.
I love reading your comments!!!
Hugs & Happy Days! ~Min
