Valentine Heart Baskets and My Health

Hi, everyone! I have not post for awhile. My kids and I were sick at different times so that keeps me from stamping. I'm glad we're all better now. I also had 4 baby shower gifts I had to make. I made 4 paint cans for the babies. I will not post them cause I posted so many of those baby paint cans on my blog. You can go to the 3D label section if you want to see them.

I went to see the doctor in the beginning of January. I told my doctor that my heart was pumping so hard during the the Christmas holidays. It happened two times and it was hard to breath. He sent me to get a blood test and the results came back that I'm anemic. That sure explains me being so tire all the time especially last year when I didn't stamp so much. I have been taking iron supplements for two weeks now. In March I'll go for another blood test to see if the iron pills work for me. Anyway, now that is said how about some stamping stuff.

Are you looking for Valentine ideas? Here are two heart baskets made from the Petal Cone Bigz L Die. I embossed them with the Perfect Polka Dots and the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders. Gotta love those embossing folders.

I added the Build a Blossom flower to this basket.

I added ribbon rosettes to this basket. I made the rosettes from satin ribbons. Satin is harder to work with because they are so slippery. I used to make tons and tons of these rosettes for weddings. I used a stiffer ribbon for it.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Stamping!

Deanna, these little baskets are beautiful. Your rosettes are especially pretty. My friend taught me how to make them but I have forgotten already, will have to get her to show me again. I hope you regain good health and that the iron pills are enough to maintain your strength. I am thinking of you.

Wow, these are adorable & those flowers & rosettes are stunning!

I hope the pills work well for you & you start feeling better soon. No one likes to feel run down so take care of yourself.
