Happy Valentine's Day!

It's that time again, time to show your love!  I love celebrating Valentine's Day with my kids, it's so light-hearted and fun!  My husband did good and gave me a Michaels gift card today. (it's burning a hole in my pocket as we speak!)  Here's a look at the cards I made for my girls-

 For Hunter's card I used cute little Ebony from The Greeting Farm.

 And for Maddie's card I used sweet little Cheeky Howdy from The Greeting Farm.

A gift for my husband.

I love this vintage Valentine paper.  I first saw it last February when my friend Kim gave me a little Valentine goody made with this paper.  I finally got a few sheets for myself from Hobby Lobby.  I tried to do something a little different with my girls' cards, so I carefully glued the images to the inside ring around the window I made in the card.  I first cut a plain circle with my Nestabilities, and then I made a "frame" with two other Nestabilities.  I wanted the vintage paper to be very apparent, but the image got lost in the paper when I tried to lay it right on top of it.  Putting the image on the front made it stand out more, but you still get all of the fun from the paper behind it.  And if you couldn't tell, I love this paper so much that I decided to wrap my husband's gift in it.  I also used a Copic color that I have been neglecting, RV29, Crimson.  I love this color, so bright and happy, great red shade.  Everything was very matchy-matchy, but very festive!

Hope everyone has a terrific Valentine's day!!!
