Valentines - Update

I wanted to add an update!
I've just received Grace's sweet card.
Please scroll to the bottom of my post to see it.
Thank you, Grace!

Hello, Dear Ones!
Do you remember the Circle Journal group I was in?
Well, we decided to have a Valentine exchange.
Let the fun begin...

I gathered my supplies and went to town Valentining!
You talk about fun!

My cards were basically the same ~ I just used different papers.
I put the snap of the little girl singing and playing the piano on the back of each card.
Of course, you know that's me! :)

Look at all of the lovely cards I received from the girls!
They are all so talented and this has been such a great group.
I think we're going to exchange Easter cards!

Now I want you to see the glorious Valentine's cards I received ~

Just wanted to let you know I've received Grace's card who blogs at Pink In The City.
Thank you, Grace, I love it!

Oh, this is so much fun. 
If you get a chance to be part of a circle journal group ~ do it!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Song ~ 

Girls Just Want To Have Fun

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun

  28. Good morning Shelia, I am up and feeling better today finally. Thank you so much for your get well wishes. It worked. My dtr. and grands have been here since Thurs. and they were bummed that I was sick. Me too. They skied on Friday and today they are outside playing in the snow that fell down yesterday. For Fl kids they are having a blast in the snow this morning.

    Your post is so sweet and sharing our cards and yours in the making is so special. I adore your card and all the rest as well. Grace's arrived on Sat. and I finally felt up to adding it to my post this morning. It was worth the wait as she did a lovely bit of crafting on her pretty card. This was so much fun. I loved doing this exchange.

    Our Circle Journal friends are so special. I would love to do this again.
    Love, Jeanne
