My name is Rachel and I'm a paper-aholic...(oh, and another Valentine's card to share)

So yes, I am admitting my addiction, but NOT yet ready to seek help. ;) I LOVE paper! Especially Valentine's paper...all kinds, all color combinations, so many papers that come out around Valentine's Day make me drool and lose my mind, making me buy up enough paper to last for the next 10 Valentine's Days, but I can't help myself!

In case you might be like me and need some enabling, and haven't seen these paper lines, check out the ones I just got...gah! I ordered them and am waiting with baited breath to get my hot little hands on them.

Echo Park Paper Be Mine Collection
Making Memories Je T'Adore collection
Bo Bunny Crush collection

My current fetish is all things with music notes on it and beautiful vintage things (but not TOO eclectic, à la Graphic 45) I also spent a year of my college education in France, so of course I'm in love with all things French, and the Echo Park & Making Memories papers just make me swoon!

Yes, I am indeed a paper-aholic. I have more than I'll ever be able to use in my lifetime and I want MORE! ;)

OK, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I will share a very simple but pleasing (to me) card I made, for...wait for it...ah yes, Valentine's Day. (I know, I need help) Just some adorable yummy paper I couldn't resist last year from Martha Stewart Crafts. No extensive fanciness here, but I enjoy when I can create a simple card that I am happy with.
