Valentine Day Card

Hi to whoever still reads my blog...*grin*
I do know that when a blogger doesn't post that often (like myself) people tend not to stop by as often. I'm just not a daily or even a weekly blogger. Wish I was but I know's just not going to happen.
I did sign up for two craft shows in April...the first and the last Saturday of the month.
I have been busy making projects and cards to sell and hopefully I will be posting those in a timely manner.
This is the Valentine Day card I sent out to my grandchildren this year.

I'm very happy with how this card came together. A bit different for me.
I found the little brown envelope at Michaels and wanted to use it for a Valentine card. I punched hearts from solid and patterened valentine paper and put them in the envie...cute!
The base of the card is craft cardstock from PTI. I then layered a nice solid red with PTI valentine paper. For an added touch I also used PTI's natural twine.

I do have one more Valentine Day project to post that I made for the grandson's but I need to check on the corresponding link to give credit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine's Day Items

I'm not even going to give an excuse as to why these items are so late being it laziness or just life on my part.

These cute little treat holders were for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter to give to her daycare friends. They hold a fruit snack (Dora)
So easy and so cute!
I found the idea from Dawn. Love her blog ....she is a great inspiration.
The stamp set is an older one from StampingUp. It is actually my go to set for children Valentine's. The sentiment is from Amuse stamps. Paper is from my local Paper Plus paper supply store and I buy it by the ream.
I filled in the butterfly with a gel embossing pen.

I do have a few more Valentine post, hopefully will post those tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!
