Valentine's Burlap banner

Hello....the kiddos are home from school today due to a dusting of snow~

Pretty isn't it?

I am from Rhode Island...where we had a good bit of snow throughout the winter season...don't ever remember missing school for it. Lucky kids!!
So...later today I will fill the bird feeders and put out the corn for squirrels. I think I could sit here all day long and watch the squirrels. Why I wonder.... do their tails twitch??
If you look at the picture, my house is on the left but on the far right of the picture you will see a tree with one of those stands for the squirrels? I had my husband make me one and we put it on my neighbors tree...LOL. They didn't mind..honestly I am not sure if they have ever even noticed it!

Anyway, over the weekend I was excited to decorate for Christmas...Valentine's (might need another cup of coffee!) I don't have a bunch of goodies, but a few here and there. What got me inspired was a new lantern I found:

I filled it with some country goodies...I found this glass cylinder that could slide easily over a candle, or flameless candle..but what I did was taped a strand of these led lights that are even made to go under water to the inside of the glass...have you seen these?? SO stinkin' cute!!
Here is a close-up of the lights:

What I loved about it was the burlap...remember my burlap banners shown here??
On that post I also have a quick video tutorial.

Here is a quick card I made yesterday. This is also the very first time I used the Petite Pennants Builder punch...why is that?? I LOVE it, makes for a quick and easy project...and as you know I am obsessed with how is it that I have never made a banner type card?? Things that make you go hmmmm.

Here is the back:

Tomorrow I can't wait until my new goodies arrive...I have not ordered anything in over two months!!! So not only did I replenish card stock, buttons, brads and snail adhesive. But after hours of looking through the new Spring Catalog...I decided what I wanted needed. Lucky me...I was able to choose 10 FREE Sale-a-Bration goodies too!!!
