Make It : More Valentine's Day Cards!

Posted by

WARNING! If you are my sweetheart, please stop reading now.

A couple of years ago I started a tradition of mailing a Valentine to my honey starting February 1st, till the actual day of Valentine. Yup, 14...sent by real mail. In the past it's been a collection of great cards I have found by talented folks, and some made by me. But this year I gave myself the challenge to make all 14.

I'm only sharing half of the collection since I've already started the mailing process, and haven't actually completed all 14 yet.

I only have few more to make, but I did score a beautiful card by Rosa Clifford, who is going to be on the show February 6th demoing this sweet love bird card. I know it's cheating on my challenge a little, but 13 out of 14 cards made by me is still pretty good.

  • Wow, fourteen cards! How exciting to receive those in the mail.

  • they're all so good! i love the faux bois one! <3

  • I love the idea of making your own cards for Valentines Day! I think I will try it!

  • I L-O-V-E, the cards!!! Please, let me/everybody know, where the, "rub-on," that went inside the card, came from! Such beautiful script, with the crystals added, is a perfect touch :-)
