Valentines Day might be growing on me...

You all know my opinion of Valentines Day, right? Well, I may be starting to sway.

I joined a Valentines Card swap on this cool blog. You were to make a card, nothing store bought, and mail it to your assigned person. I made my card. And mailed it off. Then completely forgot about the swap. I got carried away with other things, you know job, kids, hubby, etc...

Well, yesterday was one of those days. You know the ones where you are just feeling BLUE and tired and don't really want to fix dinner, so you let your 10 year old pick and she picks McDonalds, and you are okay with it because you are feeling BLUE and tired and don't really want to fix dinner. Anyway, after the Mom taxi made the final stop at home for the night, I found this on the counter:

This is the Valentine Card that was sent to me. Honestly, I wanted to jump right into it.
But I waited because there was chocolate in there and I was hungry and it was chocolate and I really shouldn't eat those before dinner. Not in front of the girls anyway.
I love that Catherine sent this in a clear box.
I love the card she sent.
I love that she took time to make this so freakin' special.
She also included a longgggg piece of stamped muslin.
I love it. I can't wait to use it in something.
Did I mention that it is a longgggg piece of muslin?

Well, I am feeling the L-O-V-E people.
So much so that I want to share some of this muslin, and a few other mystery goodies with a lucky person.
I would like to know what makes you feel special.
What little thing makes you feel like the Queen of the world?
Let me know this in a comment here, and I will use the Random Generator to pick a lucky person.
Get your comment on THIS POST by February 28th.
I'll pick a winner on March 1st.
Who knows, chocolate might be involved...
