Valentines!

I have never been a big Valentine's Day person. I mean, if you love people then show them all the year long....right?  After I became a mom I loved making Valentine cards with my kids....both making cards with them and also for them.  Then they got older and I would just make cards for them and for my husband.....but still, they were never my favorite type of cards to make.  So, one of my goals this year was to actually sit down and make Valentine Day cards.....enough to send out.  Especially enough to send out as I was unable to get Christmas cards sent out this year......so, I have begun the Valentine card process.....and surprisingly?-it has been pretty fun.  I live what I have made so far and have a few more ideas in my head.  I will readily admit that when it comes to to these types of cards my creativity is on vacation but with some fabulous patterned paper I feel I was able to make some nice cards!  On my first 3 cards I used Hero Arts Stamps Blooming Heart K5298Daisies K5586, You and Me Cl567 and on my final card I used a Northwoods Rubber Stamp.  All paper is by Echo Park.  Here they are:






Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day!

Be well,
Sheila

Ditto everything you have said about Valentine's, Sheila. Your cards are beautiful!! I love your designs and how you have coloured them...I wouldn't be able to choose a favourite as they are all gorgeous! :)

You do such beautiful work! I love every one of these, Sheila! You and I were working with the same paper pack today - great minds - :)

Oh, Sheila! All of these are really beautiful and striking! Love the two hearts intertwined! Pretty use of the pp! I love Valentines's really just for the kiddos! To see the joy and happiness on their face when they get little cards and candy from each other! So I really don't make cards either.
