Card Creating and Doorbell Ditching

So, I've got the card-bug again and can't stop making them. Every time I get new supplies I just can't seem to stop. I went into Michael's again last week with my daughter and of course had to get a few cute things.

They have new K & Company lines there that I've never even heard of! Those designers are busy, busy!

And then, my daughter and I made these cones and filled them with candy. We put them on neighbor's doorknobs, ring the doorbell and run! What fun - and we don't leave our name - we're trying to stir up a little Valentine's mystery. I wanted to do it for Halloween and never had the time, - so Valentine's Day is just as fun. Anyone else ever go doorbell ditching?

Laurie-your cards are getting cuter all the time! Don't you just love the Chloe's Closet paper-Michael's has been killing me lately! The doorbell ditching idea is so cute, I may have to "borrow" that one.
