Valentines Galore!!

Good Friday morning everyone!! OMG...where did this week go??? I still don't have my Christmas stuff put away......Mom and I kept our Christmas decorations up for my Sister's visit. Maybe I will have it finished this weekend.....or at least in time to get the Easter decorations up...LOL!! Anyway....instead of working on my house I played in the craft room. The Valentine above was made with Echo Park Be Mine dp and stickers....I just love those papers!!! The birdcage sticker was adhered to a scrap of Basic Gray cardstock and cutout leaving some of the cardstock showing for a mat and to add a little stability. The ribbon, button, and floss are the only embellishments.
This Valentine showcases die cuts from Doodlebug Designs...the sparkly silver metal sentiment is from Memory box and the heart sticker is from K&Co. The bottom edge was punched with an EK success scalloped punch.
Both cards are pretty simple yet look very detailed and best of all they were super fun to make!!!
Thanks for visiting during my Valentine week.....I'll have more this weekend and then I should be all set for my children and the Grands. I still have several friends to make cards for so I guess I'll be making them all month...yikes!! I'll be mighty sick of red and pink by then...LOL!!!!

All your Valentines are wonderful. I can't decide which I like best. Well okay the Box for your Mom is pretty spectacular and I might attempt one . Love the flourish, flower and all the lace and pearls. All the projects are great.

I don't make Valentine cards (well, I've just made one but it's a one-off) but I'm really enjoying yours. Your first card doesn't look simple, the papers and images give it a really full look which I love, great papers and images. And your second card is so fun and bright, 2 great styles. I bet it takes you longer to take your decorations down than it did to put them up, lol. CoB

Hi Joan,
I just love all the valentines you have been creating. I really only need to make one for my son! :) But your dedication to your craft room has inspired me to get busy in mine! You aren't the only one who hasn't finished putting away Christmas items! Luckily we have a 3 day weekend this weekend! lol
