Happy Valentines Day!!!

Good morning everyone and HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!!!
I hope you all get to do something wonderful with someone special to you....I get to work....what a bummer!!! Maybe my DH will take me out for supper...a girl can dream, can't she...LOL!!!! I may have to take my hubby out but he can pay...sounds like a plan to me!!!!!
I made these cards for some friends but haven't got them in the mail yet.....shame on me :(
I had an idea for the design and kept stamping  till I got the look I wanted, which was the first card. Then I looked at all the practice samples and decided I couldn't let them go to waste so I made two more cards.
They are all kinda the same but different. This one uses stampes from Verve's Heart to Heart set and Verve's Hearts on Fire set. Silver metallic paper was used for the matting and a red heart shaped doily filled in the background. Memento's Lady Bug, Angel Pink, London Fog, and Tuxedo inks were used and Baker's Twine finished it off.

This one uses three retired Stampin Up! sets; Lace Heart, happy Hearts, and Gentler Times. Real Red, Pretty in Pink, and Going Gray inks were used along with silver metallic paper and baker's twine.
The same Verve stamp sets and Memento inks were used here but I changed the matting paper to Real Red .....I added a heart shaped button and Baker's Twine to finish it off.

Thanks for popping in today....I hope you have a super FABULOUS Valentines Day!!!!

Hi Joan, just wanted to say I like your sweet cards. I tend to gravitate (is that how you spell it?) towards the simple and clean looking cards without a lot of embellishments and these fit that style. Great color choices.
