I've been doing my very best to get back in the crafting swing of things here this week... making SAS4Kids Valentines for the kids at Nationwide Children's.
It seems so easy to make girlie and little kid Valentines. So, I've been trying to make guy and older kid cards this week. I'm thinking I may have had a little luck with the card below. Hoping I can crank out a few more of these now that I've come up with this design. :)

I'm going to enter this over at the Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search. As I've said before, hope springs eternal. :)
I'm also going to enter the following challenges:
- Chill Out over at Simon Says. Give me a cup of hot chocolate and a good book if you want me to do some winter chilling out. But, as I've learned from my nephews, nothing helps a teen chill out more than putting some techie device in their hands. :)
- Darnell's NBUS Challenge #8 -- in honor of her blogaversary. (Congrats, Darnell!) The NBUS items come from the teen scene set. While I'd used the laptop before, the mouse, arrow, envelope, and speech bubble had never been used. As for the optional theme part of this NBUS challenge, this was the first time I'd used small images in multiple colors to create a background.
A quick reminder that our new Words 2 Craft By Challenge started last week and runs through February 1. We have a couple of Simon Says gift certificates up for grabs and hope you'll join us.
And, a big announecement: A fellow Central Ohioan who shares a love for Nationwide Children's is spearheading a Hug a Heart Card Drive for the patients at Children's Hospital. If you can help out with a card or two or three or thirty (LOL), click on Christina's blog or scroll down a post or two here.
Have a great week. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
