The Beginning Of Valentine Card Season

I was so excited to begin
making Valentine cards last night that I made two. My desk is an absolute mess, covered with pink and red goodies. Here's a little peek...

As you can see on my
computer, I stopped writing this to take the photo. I'm resting my arms on die cuts to type! I pull out everything I can think of to use except the flowers. Those come out when I get the basic card design done. Without a doubt, Valentines are my favorite cards to create.

The only new product I've
bought this year for my Valentines is the My Mind's Eye Heirloom 6" x 6" paper pad along with the ephemera pack and alpha & word stickers. They seem to go with all my older odds and ends from previous years like the MME Love Me collection I used here.

The ribbon was a small
scrap in my trims box, just the perfect size to tie around the bottom. These pink metal flowers were a close-out item purchased at Michaels two years ago. The flowers are Prima (old also) and the beaded spray was bought from an Etsy shop at least two years ago. The gorgeous gem in the center of the heart is the last one I have in that size of the Swarovski crystals I had from our mail order craft supplies business before we retired (ah... good memories). I sponged Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on all the paper edges.
