Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!  It's a cold but sunny, clear day in Minnesota and - big surprise, I'm not out doing Singing Valentines this year.  There were enough other people eager to do it so, since I've done it many times, I took this year off.

I had fun making Valentines this year and have shared some of my cards.  Here's one I made for my sister who has found a second "career" as a quilter!  I used a die from Art Gone Wild to create these cute quilt pieces using paper from BoBunny's Head over Heels 6x6 pad.  I made a 5.5x5.5 square card to be able to fit all the pieces on it.  The xoxo sentiment is from Hero Arts - a set appropriately named XO.

Quilt Valentine

It was a busy week for me but yesterday I had a day off and time to create a card for this week's Merry Monday!  The challenge - use a candy cane on your card.  It may seem odd to share a Christmas card on Valentine's Day but I'm trying to get that quota for 2015!  I actually made two cards but will just link up one to save time.  Here are the cards:

Candy Cane Joy
Candy Cane Joy
Supplies:  Silhouette Design ID #52325 and 52613; Stamps: Hero Arts Tiny Ink Spots and Bring on the Merry
Theresa Collins glitter dots, Wink of Stella

Candy cane with bow
Candy Cane with Bow
Supplies:  Silhouette Design ID# 52613; Hero Arts stamp Tiny Ink Spots; Teresa Collins glitter dot

Yay two more Christmas cards done!  I've lost track of my total but I'm over 20 - yay.  Now I'm off to run some errands and have lunch with friends.  Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping!
