Hearts & Flowers

Be My Valentine!

I love Valentine's Day with all the pink, red, and white, the lace, hearts, and flowers! I'm not usually someone who goes for frills, but I make an exception for this holiday!

My daughter-in-law sells my cards in her shop, and has been after me for Valentines. I recently sat down and colored a bunch of images, then started putting the cards together. The following are just a few that I've finished so far. More to come in the next week!

Gingham Galore!

The inside reads, " I love you almost as much as I love my dog. Happy Valentine's Day!"

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Martha Stewart Border punch, Mounting tape
Papers: SU! Pretty in Pink, Mambo Melon, Neenah smooth white, Gingham DP

Love Grows!

 This card uses Mo's image "Sprout" which is only one of several images from various artists available for a donation to aid a stamper who is going through a difficult time. It is not for sale in Mo's shop, but can be purchased here along with the others.  Read more about it on  Jak's Blog and purchase the package to support a good cause.
