A Couple of Valentine Cards

Hi everyone!  We have an overcast day here today with moderate temperatures but will be back with colder temperatures tomorrow.  I have a turkey roasting in the oven, so I thought I'd take the time to  share a couple of Valentine cards.

I pulled out my Tim Holtz large postage frame, heart and small postage stamp dies.  I love these dies!  The base of the card is kraft cardstock layered with K&Co papers.  A piece of cream crochet lace was placed on the left side.  The sentiment card is from Crafty Secrets and was among some things sent to me from my stamping friend, Sharon.  You can visit her blog here.  The heart was inked in Tattered Rose and Tea Dye Distress Inks.  I stamped a tiny postage stamp image onto the tiny kraft stamp.  The little flowers are Prima but I'm not sure where the larger one is from.

Next up is a card made with papers from Recollections.  The diecut heart and ribbon are from Sharon also.

The tiny hearts were done with a Heidi Swapp stencil, modeling paste and glitter.  The key is from Recollections, and the heat-shaped pearls in the center of the large heart are Prima.

Once again, I used the Tim Holtz large postage frame die as a base for the card.  On the envelope, I just added a strip of Recollections washi tape and a tiny rosebud.

Another wonderful blog to visit is SWG Original Designs.  Linda is having a blog giveaway which is open until February 28.  If you click on her blog candy link, you can enter to win her fantastic prize.

Valentine's Day will be here in less than a week, so I wish a very happy one to each and every one of you.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate all your sweet comments.
