Do you feel like making someone's day for no special reason? Why not send out a RAK yourself. I know whomever is on the receiving end is going to LOVE whatever you send them. Here is what Michelle sent me.
12 sheets of patterned paper from the We R Memory Keepers Nonsense Collection. This paper is AWESOME. A couple of the sheets are flocked and a couple have glitter on them. Michelle thought I would like the paper; WOW was she right!
Matching trims and ribbons from the We R Memory Keepers Nonsense Collection.
And, last but not least, a Martha Stewart Valentine's Day Festivities Kit. Michelle thought my girls would enjoy this. How sweet is that? Not only was she thinking about me, but she was thinking about my Daughters. After I read Michelle's card and saw this, I immediately ran over to my girls to show them. They were SUPER excited and can't wait to make Valentine cupcakes for their friends.

I have to say that using just red, white, and black was a lot harder than I thought it would be. But, that's why they call it a challenge, right?!? The envelope and mailbox are from the WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE set by Storage Units, Ink & More. And, I have to admit that I cheated just a little bit (shhhh). I used my C-1 Copic Marker to highlight the images. I colored the hearts in with a Copic Marker and (even though it's really hard to see in the photo) I added StarDust Stickles to both images. I used Choice Snow White cardstock, Prism Papers Classic Red, and the some black and white Doodlebug patterned paper that I had in my stash. The red and black sheer polka dot ribbon is from Michael's and I added some red rhinestones to the bottom. Don't forget to check out the Storage Units, Ink & More BLOG for more cards for today's challenge.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you (as I did above).
2. Mention the rules.
3. Tell 6 things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 other bloggers by linking to them.
5. Go to each person's blog and leave them a comment to let them know they've been tagged.
So, here are 6 things about me (WARNING: I'm NOT that interesting...LOL):
1. I was a gymnast for 13 years. In my junior year of high school, our team took 3rd in state. BUT NOW, I can't do a cartwheel to save my life, but my husband CAN...LOL!!!
2. I LOVE PENS!!! My friends know how much I love them and usually bring me back one or two whenever they go on vacation. I have pens from all over the world. I take them from Doctor's offices and sometimes from the waitresses at restaurants (I know; HORRIBLE). I have about 5 in my purse, about 20 at work, and who knows how many at home....:) I'm what you call a "Pen Snob".
3. I have naturally curly hair, but I prefer it straight. Isn't that how is always is; you have curly hair and straighten it - you have straight hair and curl it...LOL?!?!
4. I HAVE to have coffee EVERY SINGLE morning or I am NOT a happy person.
5. I am a NAP person. I take naps every Saturday and Sunday afternoon (if there isn't something that interferes with it) and will usually sleep for at LEAST two to three hours.
6. I have put myself on a "Stamping Spending Freeze" for the time being. While organizing my stamping space a couple of weeks ago, I came across way too many things that have yet to be used; things that I purchased over a year ago; YIKES! So, I'm currently working on using up the stuff I have until I buy anything new. Let's see how long that lasts...LOL!!!
Okay, now it's time for me to tag 6 people. They are:

I told her exactly what I wanted and I got it. And, she was SUPER QUICK! Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
